Me and Amy's baby... I'd say this picture accurately depicts what I'm about... booze and babes. Yup.
Hola, fellow geeks.
I'm relatively new to the cooking game. This has many reasons, among them the trauma of failing an introductory cooking class in high school. It wasn't until my undergrad years that I began to cook regularly, at first, for myself, and then for others, and came to realize that it was actually a lot of fun. And if my roommates could stomach my culinary creations, then by Jeebus, I couldn't be complete crap at it.
But in all seriousness, I'm a real big foodie who's developed quite a love for cooking, and I'd love to learn more from you! Specifically, I'm a fan of simple cooking, with uncomplicated recipes and simple but fresh ingredients.
I'm hoping we'll get better acquainted with thyme! (HAH! You're welcome.)
