The maiden post

If you've ever bit into a juicy homemade hamburger and closed your eyes while chewing, then you'll need to be a regular follower of this blog.   Anyone who knows me, knows that I talk about food all the time and not necessarily in a  "where are we gonna eat?" kinda way, but in a "I bet if I seared the steak, then topped it w/ bacon and bleu cheese it would taste badass" kinda way. 

I'm always thinking how to make something better or more savory.  I enjoy watching Food Network, especially Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.  I actually got my wife, Kendra, watching it too.  

To me, being in the kitchen is similar to a therapy session a la Tony Soprano.  It's just relaxing.  And sometimes when not in the mood, i'll pick up something savory.  No worries mate.

It brings me satisfaction when I bring satisfation to others because of something I created.  I love making meatballs as big as baseballs, love slow-cooking ribs for my friends to eat during our University of Houston Tailgate parties and like making a simple chicken stir-fry for me and my wife on Monday night.

I'll post pictures of me in the kitchen and videos of any food adventures as they come.  Anyway, just wanted to get the first post outta the way.   Make food, Make Friends.

Tonight I made Chicken Stir Fry.  Here's me flipping the pan.
