Houston, Texas

Named after General Sam Houston, Houston is the largest city in the state of Texas. Other factoids also put the city at the top of the heap: it’s the 4th largest city in the US; the theater district has the second largest number of theater seats in a downtown area; it’s home to the largest medical center in the world—and the city’s temperature really gets up there too. Houstonians take refuge in the 11,000 air-conditioned restaurants, eating out more than any other city’s residents—and for good reason. Houston’s Tex-Mex is about as good as it gets, and there’s a reason people can’t stop talking about Texas BBQ.

About me:
I'm a 30-year-old full time grad student working on a degree in library science. I'm married, no kids yet, but have three dogs who like to pick up after me in the kitchen (you know, because of all the food I end up dropping on the floor). I got my love of cooking from my dad, whose a devotee of Julia Child. My husband makes fun of my cooking, but I think I'm much better than he give me credit for!
