I am an amateur cook, who attended culinary school for one year, 16 years ago.  I enjoy canning and preserving, trying new things, and experimenting with new foods and techniques.  I keep finding, changing, and trying recipes, I needed a place to keep them all.  I’m also starting to dabble in backyard homesteading.  I’m playing with renewable gardens, composting, and raising chickens.  My kitchen’s not clean.  My pictures aren’t pretty.  But my food is pretty good.  These are my stories.

    They are fully grown between the ages of 5 and 6 can live for up to 13
    years. To borrow the title of the movie that brought Serengeti to the world,
    I say, Serengeti shall not die. Fact is, if every
    sales person had that one book alone and mastered its
    principles, they’d be the best in their chosen field.
