Hello Everyone!

My name is Toni and I love to cook. I have cooked most of my life and I am passionate about it. I make my own spice blends which I like better than anything available at the grocery stores in my area. I am geting into baking now and I am really enjoying it.

I love making friends and sharing food tips. I would love to go on a cooking vacation. Greece, Italy, spice markets in Marrekesch, Brazil, the Caribbean, Singapore and Hong Kong are high on the list of places where I would love to travel and cook.

What I love about cooking is that you can never know it all, and there is always something to challenge you. I'm glad to part of your community and look forward to sharing with you.

Oh, I'm from the Washington, D.C. area.

Wheat,

How nice of you to respond and thank you for the recommendation. You may be hearing from me with suggestions for regional spice blends to give my food a more authentic taste.

Toni

Welcome, toni. My husband, Buck, and I moved from the Washington, D.C. area 13 years ago to our piece of quiet here in Kentucky. D.C. is a wonderful place filled with all manner of food delights. We really enjoyed everything that was there when we were in the area.

Unfortunately, some of the places we considered premier are gone. With any luck, they've been replaced with eateries of equal delight.

We look forward to hearing more from you.
