Anna and I have been together for several years now, and wanted to share some of our favorite things – adult beverages and delicious food.  I have worked in the restaurant industry for over 20 years, and have been cooking since I was six when my cousin Chris taught me how to cook a grilled cheese sandwich (still one of my favorite meals).  My cooking interest really took off while travelling to Chicago with my father where a kindly chef taught a young me how to make veal piccata – as well as give me his recipe.  To this day, I can remember how shocked he was at this young kid wanting to know all the details – and I imagine he never expected me to go home and cook it for my family a week later.

Since then, I have continued to learn the craft of cooking and have even dabbled in home-brewing beer (although our children have put that hobby on semi-permanent hiatus).

My wife is the one who handles most of the baking.  Cookies, cakes, pies, and various breads and other delicious things all fall under her jurisdiction.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out the site, we would love to hear your thoughts and comments!
