My wife and I are in New England in a little town called Swansea. The nearest place for extravagant foods is in Providence...but the prices in restaurants like these are a bit out of our range for anything other than special occasions.
Each day is a special occasion for me with the love of my life...but our bank account doesn't think so.
Because of this...I have a secondary love of cooking. I am just okay at it...but with time and practice...maybe I'll get there someday.
The foods I enjoy the most are those that are truly made with love. It's that time when friends or family are gathered around the kitchen...laughing...talking...and bonding that makes the knife rock the best.
Chain restaurants are low on my list of favorite places to eat. It's my kitchen at my cutting board that I am most relaxed at the end of the day.
