Who? Me?

I have been a fan of bloggers (mostly foodies) for quite some time, and have come to the realization that they usually have better ideas and recipes than the pros on the Food Network. I come from a family of awesome Italian/Czechoslovakian cooks, and my new brother and sister-in-law are also fabulous in the kitchen. We share recipes, menu ideas, and many bottles of wine, and now, I would like to share some of these with you. Bring your own bottle.

My inspirations are eclectic. I admire Ina Garten, Julia Childs, and Jacques Torres.  Mario Batali is pure genius.  I think David Tutera and Colin Cowie are amazing.  Jim Beam and Johnny Walker are always welcome at my table.

I will try to mix in some positive thoughts and bright ideas, and hopefully, a smile to your day.
