Hello from Long Island!

I thoroughly enjoy cooking and baking and making new acquaintences online! I'm blessed to be living in such a culturally diverse area of our country and love trying new ethnic cuisines...thankfully my husband humors me and eats whatever it is I'm experimenting with.

I was prompted by a show on Food Network to start a cooking club with some online buddies. We met as often as we can and always pick a theme of cooking for the meetings..our most recent was getting Southern Cooking 101 (Fried Chicken, Collard Greens and Ham Hock, Baked Macaroni & Cheese, Banana Pudding).

I'm also a KCBS certified judge and have judged at 2 different bbq events so far. A coworker also got certified and we travelled to Lowell, MA in September for our 2nd event. We love bbq and have met some mighty nice people so far! Looking forward to next year!

Glad to be here!
