I am not a writer, therefore, please don't judge me on my grammar and punctuation. What I am is passionate about cooking, and have been ever since I could remember. My earliest memory is a story I heard dozens of times. When I was about 7 years old, my mom, who was the best cook I knew, asked me to wash potatoes for our dinner that evening.  I proceeded to wash them with soap and water... they were VERY clean!! I've learned a lot since those days and hope this blog can give others some tips, recipes and restaurant reviews.

Today's tip: If you want lemon flavor in your broccoli (or any green vegetable), but don't want the brown color it causes, use the zest of a lemon instead. It will impart that great lemon flavor yet retain the bright green color.
