We have lived in Knoxville, TN since 2000 and have been married since 1995. We have two boys at home. I enjoy cooking (duh), kickboxing, karate, brazilian jiu jitsu, cycling, writing, running, playing basketball w/ my older son, and spending time with my wonderful wife.  Know why I do all of that exercise?  So I can cook with all of the heavy cream, sour cream, pork fat, and cheese that I want!

I love smoking foods, especially pork. Growing up in the south, I like southern cooking but I also have an affinity for southwestern food, italian, and oriental foods.  I am a huge fan of the Big Green Egg ceramic grill/smoker/convection oven. 

Say hello to Chris Grove, or suggest a recipe!

I would love to try your "Roast Beef Tenderloin with Port Sauce" recipe, but you don't state the QUANTITY used of the "Simple Homemade Beef Stock"

Thanks for posting the Pub Beer/Cheese soup details! I have been looking for my old printout from about 5/6 years back and couldn't find it anywhere! However, the first search today and there you were with the directions exactly as I remembered them. Thanks for sharing and thanks for helping me achieve another fine kettle of Cheese and Beer on this dreary, cooler, fall-like day in Mid MO!!!!

Hey, thanks for the medal Chris - too cool! I found this great site from your blog, just recently signed up. Guess I better think about learning what I'm doing here and get to posting some recipes soon. Thanks again! *hugs* :-)
