Q. Where can I find the recipes for all of the food you make?

If I follow a specific recipe it will be noted in my posts. I get a lot of my inspiration from reading food blogs, articles & various recipes. Then I combine everything I’ve read into something I think I can pull off.

For me, cooking is about playing with ingredients and creating something out of flavors and textures that I enjoy. It’s about seeing what happens rather than following a recipe word for word.

It’s not always perfect but it’s always fun. I hope to encourage more people to cook like that. From their curiosity.

Q. What kind of camera do you use?

Nikon D7000 and Canon PowerShot S110.

Q. Do you work?

Yes — John and I started a business together in January 2003 and work from our home office in Florida.

Q. How do you eat all of that and not weigh 500 pounds?

I live and eat by the words “everything in moderation”. As much as I love bacon I don’t eat it at every meal. Promise!

I workout 4-7 times a week but only so I can eat more. Kidding!
I also workout so I can have a better quality of life. That is very important to me.

I avoid processed food as much as possible and I do not go to fast food restaurants (Five Guys doesn’t count, right?!).

Most importantly, I never eat anything “diet”. The diet industry is a multi-billion dollar industry for a good reason.

Q. Where have you been so far and where are you going next?

So far, I’ve been to 61 countries. We’ve had the opportunity to visit so many wonderful places and there is still so much more to experience!
