Well... Thank You both for the warm welcome! I have wanted to cook ever since I could walk. I have watched cooking shows since I was about 4 or 5. I have some pics of food I have prepared. When ever I go to resturants I save the menus to prepare different foods I think my family would like. I cook dinner for my parents all the time. Im hoping to get a degree in the Culinary field at GA Tech, Im hoping to learn alot of new recipes from this Board, and meet alot of new people! I think the reason why I love cooking so much is probably because I consider it an art, Im one of those people that stop to savor the little things in cooking like the texture of the things, the smell, & even the crunch of vegetables. I have taken several classes in school, luckily cooking never gets boring to me, and I hope to further my cooking education.
