So this is where it starts...
|Hi! I'm Lis and I'm from northeast Ohio. I have become addicted to lurking on other food blogs and have been itching to start my own.. so here goes! I am not a professional chef.. I just enjoy cooking very, very much. I grew up in the restaurant biz, as my family owned a small italian restaurant in the small town I grew up in. My mother is a fantastic cook, although she won't admit to it! My father loved to cook as well and he was rather good.. although sometimes he'd scare us with some of his "creations".|
My ultimate dream is to open another restaurant. This is a dream that I never, ever thought I would have.. because after putting 11 years into my family's restaurant, I had had enough. I was young.. still living at home and working closely with my family.. I wanted to go get out on my own and try ANYTHING that wasn't restaurant related.. so I've done that. And, yeah, my heart really does belong to that business.
I live with my fiance and our "kids": Nigel, a 2 year old blonde Lhasa Apso; Chloe, a blue merle Australian Shepard who will be 2 in May; and last but not least Kitten, a grey tiger cat who initially adopted my mother and I back in my hometown, but who eventually came to live with us here. We both work for the same company.. I'm in the office and he's out in the field. I find my current job to be mind numbingly boring and a total dead end. I enjoy where I work, but boredom has overtaken all things good. I'm thinking a career change is going to happen in the near future, but will it involve cooking? Keep your fingers crossed for me, please! =)
I'm not really sure how this blog will turn out.. I know I want it to mainly be a food blog, but don't be surprised if there is the odd post here and there about something entirely non-foodie. I have some fabulous recipes to share and I even hope to have pictures to show them off. I hope to use this online diary as a way to share recipes, make friends and be able to express myself in a way I've never done before. So, I guess we'll see how this ends up - am looking forward to learning and sharing!
