Hi! I'm a NW girl, married to a Southern boy, with a midwest child. LOL! We are military and move around quite a bit. Through our adventures, though, we have been able to learn many different styles of cooking. It has been fun to learn lots of new things. I have come to appreciate cooking and trying new things. My dad was a chef, but I didn't take an interest as a child and wish now that I had learned more while he was alive.
