About Me
Born and grew up mostly in West Central Florida. We mostly ate Southern styled food, but we also mixed in Cuban, Creole, Carribean and Soul Food. When I was about 15 we moved to Texas and we added Mexican, Tex-Mex and Southwestern to the mix. Around our house everyone learned to do everything. So, as my Dad like to say, "Man, Woman or Child" you have to know how to cook, clean, wash clothes, fix the car, do repairs around the house and garden enough to get something to eat. Everyone in the house could do just about everything, and was expected too, when it needed doing.
