One of the pleasures of preparing a great meal, is sharing it with friends and family. If you can't share the food, the next best thing is sharing information about it. Here I share some of my own food experiences, recipes, and techniques that I hope you will find interesting and useful as well as information I have collected over the years from others on the internet. I have always enjoyed cooking as a hobby. It is not only a very relaxing activity, but you enjoy the fringe benefit of getting to eat what you create. In fact, one of my primary motivations for learning to cook was to be able to taste food that in some cases is impossible to find in a restaurant. As with most things in life, items that are carefully hand-crafted are vastly superior to mass produced versions, and food is no exception. I prefer rustic, home style cooking, sometimes referred to as everyday food, lovingly prepared and served to families around the world every day.

I prefer foods with a lot of flavor, favoring ethnic cooking of all types including Mexican, Indian, Thai, Chinese, Cajun, Middle Eastern, Guatemalan, Caribbean, Japaneses Food and many others. I guess I qualify as a chile-head because I have grown up eating hot and spicy food all my life and it hasn't killed me yet.

Great recipe for stomboli! but if you're going to take credit for it at least change the recipe so it's not obvious that you copied it word-for-word.
