    Hello All.....I just joined this site and I love it. I've been lurking for about a month and have found many answers to lots of questions. I've always loved to cook and have worked for many yrs in the front of the house. I accidently started catering and just fell into developing it into a business. The area I live in is just now becoming a destination for people with lots of $$$ and who can afford to have weddings and other events catered. I still run into people who want something for nothing. Like the lady who wants hravy apps for 100ppl, but only wants to spend $500.00!!! Hardly covers my labor...anyway, I'm glad to be amongst others who can share their experiences, hope and recipes with me. Thanks for being here.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome....Yes, St. George is now so full of houses that I think if they build another it might just sink into the Gulf. I moved to Apalach about 22yrs ago and the change has been amazing! It is a destination now for weddings and has become a terrorist destination also (tourists)...but I can't complain...the cost of houses here is unbelievable..something that cost 30,000 now is about 1/2 a mil or more. But it is this class of people that allows my business to florish..the local ppl couldn't afford me. and yes.......the very BEST oysters in the world. They just reopened the bay after the hurricanes wiped them out this past yr. I look forward to being a participant in this cooking forum. Thanks again
