I work as a software engineer/modeling and simulation developer at fairly large engineering company. Even though I work in a very structured environment, I have a creative side that needs an outlet. So, I might try out some designs on the page from time to time. Cooking is my favorite hobby and why I started the blog. I tend to cook very rich and flavorful foods that get their taste from the fresh ingredients I love to use. Although I have been moving toward healthier meals, there are times when you just can’t substitute cream, butter, or other good stuff.
