I enjoy cooking. The time I spend in the kitchen gives me a creative outlet and helps me lead a healthy life. I prefer simple dishes with lots of spice. I think cooking explains a lot about life.
I really, really, really love hot pepper. I like growing my herbs and vegetables, and the Florida sun really does a number to the capsaicin in hot peppers.
I like the challenge of taking Southern dishes and trying to make them vegan and exploring the dishes of other countries and cultures. I will make a taco, or at least try, out of just about anything, and I will pickle you if you stand still too long.
Oh, and bread. Baking bread is the second greatest pleasure in life. Eating fresh baked bread is the first.
