I am a 39-year-old married father of two boys; both whom are very smart and function with severe ADHD. My husband is…a wonder of patient good humor; which given my past is enough. It is enough that he exists and is special to me and our boys. I have a Bachelors degree in Organizational Management which I primarily attempt to apply to my own household; I have the degree, it is on the wall, I can prove it. We have two dogs; one fat one and one half-bald smelly one. We love them both without prejudice, except no one likes to snuggle with the bald smelly one which is sad; she is the non-crazy one. Guess who raised the crazy one… I have a large family in the midwest and they think I am the center of the universe; just not this one.
Family dinner is important to me. I think the act of sitting down to a meal with someone is cathartic and is a great first step to building a connection with them. Ask my friends; I always suggest we get together for a meal, especially if we have had an argument. Many of my earliest memories involve food or cooking: making herb bread with my Dad or coming home to warm chocolate pudding my mom had made or her once a year Cream Puffs when the Wizard of OZ would come on TV.
Food has always played a very central role in my life; cooking with family, feeding others, experimenting with new ideas and recipes. I fall asleep to the Cooking Channel. I will generally cook and review casual food, meaning, you probably won’t see me making Beef Wellington but rather Hamburger Wellington or maybe just a great way to make a cheeseburger. I will do my absolute best to post 1 tip a week and one to two recipes every week, even if the recipe is simple. I have two sort of picky eaters so I usually will include some feedback from them to let you know if others liked the dish or not, ok? Sound good? Let’s shake on it.
I also love photography, technology,all sorts of things except most people.
