Hello Everyone

I'm happy to be here. I'm not a new cook or baker, but I'm a fairly new food blogger and I am new to this forum. I joined this site mainly to discuss cooking contests. This is the first year I'll be trying my hand at competing.

I look forward to making new friends and sharing ideas.

I grew up in Central Jersey and have family there still. Where in NJ are you?

Welcome Stacy! I was born in Jersey too. I lived in Highland Park, New Brunswick until I was 4.

I grew up in North Brunswick (8 to 30) and worked in Highland Park for a while. After my divorce, I live for 2 years in north NJ and then move to Manhattan. Now I can't imagine living anywhere else - I may dream of it sometimes, but I love not needing a car and having so many farm markets to choose from - some year round.

Where did your family move to when you were 4?

What a small world!

We moved to MA, but we had a lot of family and friends in NY and NJ so we still spend a substantial amount of time in the area.

Do you think moving to Maine influenced your likes, dislikes, cooking style?

Actually it is Massachusetts. Well it is hard to say because I was so young when we moved. If anything, I think living in the NJ/NY area influenced my likes much more than MA did. I love a good bagel, which you can not find here. I love NY type pizza. I love good deli (also very very hard to find here).

I do not think either location influenced my cooking style though. I like to cook everything from Mediterranean to Japanese to down South home style cooking to California cuisine to...you name it.
