Not really a chef...

Good day..

I am Damien. I am not a chef.. I enjoy cooking and seem to be pretty good at it, but never have taken any form of formal education for putting this or that together. My education is actually in Fire protection and am currently a firefighter at Kirtland AFB in Albuquerque, NM. I enjoy cooking Asian foods mostly because I lived in Japan for 8 years when I was in the US Navy and it brings back a lot of great memories.

I am 32, living in Rio Rancho, NM with my girlfriend of 2 years and our 3 dogs, Cooper, Mima and Yubee. Cooper is a Labrador/Weimaraner mix and Yubee and Mima are chihuahuas born of the same litter. Cooper was a rescue that we made last September. My GF and I moved here from Superior, Wisconsin in the chase for the elusive job.

Anyways.. enough about me.. I feel as if I've written a book.

-Damien

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome... I do intend to share ideas, recipes I favor and laughs!

Pacanis, Surprisingly, my pup Cooper is probably one of the most relaxed dogs I've ever been around. She trains well, listens well and is a huge wuss. I came home from a 48 hour shift this morning and all she wanted to do was sit in my lap, so I started calling her my laprador retriever. She is a 50 Lb. Lap dog...
