About this Cook
I am a 36 year old English teacher with two boys. My youngest (see my picture) is very picky about the things he likes. It isn't so much that he won't eat it, but that he'll complain about it the entire time he does. My eldest is 12 going on 16 and eats everything that isn't nailed down. I won't even mention the climb in the food bill when football season starts. I love to cook from scratch. Not only does it cut down on bills and taste vastly better, but it also allows us to spend some quality family time. My boys are experts at chopping, dicing and general prep work. Don't get me wrong, we have our pizza nights and nights out, but in general our eating time is spent at home. I don't always have a lot of time to cook, especially during school time. I'm a fan of easy, fast and good. If it has a slow cooker option, I'll use it. There's nothing like coming home to that mouth watering smell and being able to sit down and enjoy.
My favorite things to cook
I have been taking cooking classes of late at "The Seasoned Chef" here in Denver, CO. Best thing ever. I've been focused on regional stuff, and am excited about branching out!
