Cincinnati, Ohio

Called the “Queen City of the West,’ Cincinnati sits along the Ohio River, nestled into low rolling hills. Long an important river port town, Cincinnati was settled largely by Germans, and by the mid-1800s, was known as “Porkopolis” because of its importance as a meat-packing place. Cincinnati’s German heritage remains on display in the food-friendly festivals (Over-the-Rhine) and beer gardens (Mecklenburg Gardens). Cincinnati marks the unofficial crossing point between the South and Midwest. Modern residents of Cincinnati can boast of a trademark dish: Cincinnati Chili. It comes any of "five ways": as a straight-up bowl of chili, served over spaghetti, and topped with beans, cheese and/or onions. It is thought to have been the invention of Greek or Bulgarian immigrants to Cincinnati.

About me:
I was born, raised, and educated in Cincinnati, OH. Since I was a child (no siblings), I loved to stay close to my mother in the kitchen. She was a country cook and she made some of the best dishes ever. She taught me most of what I know when it comes to cooking. My husband is from the South, so most of my cooking are the old fashion southern dishes. I watch the cooking shows on TV always looking for new recipes. My favorite hobby is collecting cook books and recipes. I have collected over a thousand of them in past years. Needless to say, the kitchen is my most favorite room in the house.
