It's not so much the cooking I like as it is the eating.


Home cook working on getting better.

lol, i like andy's response. i'm also a c.p.c..

i cook for my wife and son at home, and for my family's gatherings. my brother's 60th birthday is coming up, so i have to get in touch with a sis to coordinate the festa.

once a year, i cater my department's christmas party, feeding around 100. i do it for the glory, for the atta-boys, for spite, and for brownie points to allow me to have christmas day off.

While I love cooking and really get in to it on Sunday, I'm just a plain ol uninteresting home cook...

I'm no where near a chef,
But I am the chief cook and bottle washer at the house!

<~~~nomadic professional chef...Lately, I'm like the Mary Poppins of the culinary sect, only with red clogs and striped pants. I can think of only one thing I need, lately, more than my knives....a GPS for my car.
