Hello everyone! I grew up in the restaurant industry until joining the USAF, then got into the computer industry after I finished that. I'm now a home cook with a big interest in Southwestern cuisines, that is, the foods of Texas (beef bbq, Tex Mex, and country cooking), New Mexico, and what I call "Border Mexican." I am also in the process of learning the crafts of butchering and charcuterie. I hope to someday open a small butchershop/diner that reflects some or all of these interests--don't know how exactly, just yet!
