My journey from burning agua to being a great cook!



In this space, we are going to go on a journey of self-discovery.   It is a noble task to achieve the mastery of the oldest art form, cooking!  I like many people never learned to cook.  I would eat out all the time or for a change eat processed foods like ramen noodles.  Join me to learn all the secrets to being a good cook.  Join me on this exploration of the culinary arts and together we can achieve the highest compliment, "You are a great cook!"
