I would like to say hello to everyone. I live in South Texas just outside of Houston. I was medically retired from the military after 12 years. I have been cooking different types of foods for about 10 years or so. My food types really varyies quite a bit. I usually use recipes that are given to me by friends and family. And thanks to the internet I am able to find many from there. I hope that I can contribute to these forums and also to learn from them. See you out there.
