Jimmy and I both love to cook and love good food. I grew up in the deep south, where food is king, and Jimmy grew up on the west coast, floating between Oregon and California. Obviously we have very different backgrounds, but we both love how food brings people together in all situations. Our favorite genres of food are Italian, Southern, and Asian. I love cooking at home when I have the time and Jimmy is still in the early stages of learning his way around the kitchen, although he can throw a mean pizza dough and does know how to grill out. It’s all about confidence and experimentation in the kitchen. I look forward to the day when I’ll have every kitchen accessory and tool that I could possibly want…but for now I just make do with what I’ve got! This food blog is our experiment to share favorite recipes, messes and successes. Bon Appetite!
