    Cooking is awesome it relieves my stress.

    Who thinks that men who cook are sexy as hell? I do. If we cooked together I don't think we would end up eating the food. Just each other!

    Over the weekend I found myself spending SO

    much time in the kitchen! What am I doing? Going through some sort of midlife crisis? But I found myself enjoying the process, leaving things to simmer and cook slowly, adding ingredients, having several different dishes going at once. The end product was that the kids (1...

    Me gusta cocinar, especialmente para familia y

    amigos...quiero ser una buena anfitriona, y eso implica estar en todos los detalles... Los sabores típicos de cada lugar son una excelente forma de llegar a conocer un lugar, el idioma y la comida son partes muy típicas de cada cultura...

    GMO and common sense in your food.

    I don't cook a lot, but I enjoy great food

    and wine. I search for recipes that aren't too complicated, but that have ingredients I really like. Put on some great music, prep the ingredients, open a bottle of good wine that complements the meal, and cook away. A great way to spend an evening.
