I have always enjoyed cooking and of course eating it once they are done and ready. I love all sorts of food from all sorts of cultures and countries.

I am grateful that I have been blessed with the love of cooking and food. Food brings us together, brings us fond memories and shapes a lot of our lives and relationships.
