I've come seeking solace from squash!

    So one day I discovered that my knife was actually a magic wand. It magically turned my tomato into squash. By that I mean instead of cutting it, the knife squashed my tomato.

    Since then I've been on a mission to never have that happen again. So I of course turned to the great wizard Internet to find out about how to sharpen knives and more importantly keep them sharp, because I'd rather be using the knife than sharpening it.

    So in my searches I've stumbled onto this site and wow what a site it is! Even celebrity chefs on here!

    A little more background on me, I cook at home. My father is a retired chef though. Respecting his privacy I won't post where he worked. I took a different path in life. I have a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering degree, mostly due to my father wanting better for me than to work in a kitchen which can be stressful, to put it succinctly. Also due to my curiosity as a young child in how things worked. Much to the chagrin of my parents I took nearly everything apart as a kid to find out what made them tick. I did put them back together though (usually with no parts missing /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lever.gif), sometimes with parts that where never there in the first place!)

    I can see why cooking can be a great way to express your creativity though. Today I made some homemade pizza. Delicious!

    Happy cooking/forum reading/whatever it is you do!

    Happy Living!
