Hi! My name is Terri Martin. I am a student at Columbia College in Sonora, California. I joined Chef talk to learn more about the culinary world and to talk (chat) with other avid "beginning" chefs ..... I have been an at-home cook for my family for many years and have always enjoyed cooking. I am always experimenting and I love new recipes. I often substitute ingredients to fit the needs and taste buds of my family.
