I Currently live in the des Moines, Ia metro area. The purpose of this site is to share recipes with the masses, well as product reviews and maybe even a few restaurant reviews.
In my day to day life I work in the information Technology world and mainly use food as a hobby. Well it is more of an obsession than a hobby. I have owned a restaurant and served as its executive chef. I do a lot of cooking in large quantity for my church and other groups as well. I have made some award winning sauces and have had them showcased in a local Des Moines restaurant.
I grow up on a dairy farm in Northeast Iowa and learned a lot about animal and crops and I apply that to my cooking. I leaned to cook from my Mother who can still great some great dishes. Growing up my friends always want to stay for meals. This I guess rubbed off on me. To this day friend still ask me to cook and bring food to gatherings.
In my spare time I do a lot of cooking and experimenting with different sauces. I am also a certified KCBS BBQ judge and enjoy judging BBQ as well as eating it. I am still a farmer at heart and I do spend a lot of time help a friend on his 8000+ acre farm.
