I'm an engineer and scientist by training, but I love to cook. My friends might say I love to feed people. Yet, I can never seem to find just the perfect recipes, so I make up my own based on whatever information I can find. This is for anyone who appreciates a little extra flavor and spice in the food they already love. Enjoy!
