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 young, but I'm learning! I love to cook. It's my escape from daily responsibilities, and a useful talent. I love to experiment, so often I browse a bunch of recipes for one dish and then mix and match. Creativity, but not neatness, is what I'm known for. :]
