I am a 24 year old nursing student living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. My partner and I got married in Toronto, Ontario, Canada a little over a year ago, and I love trying new recipes for him.
Most of the things I create are creations from food items I receive from my grandmother. She has a wonderful church organization near her home which delivers grocery items to Senior Citizens on a lower fixed income. As wonderful as this organization is, they always deliver my grandmother things of which she will never use. The woman is 80 years old and they give her an entire case of 24 cans of cooked Pork in a can. What they expect her to do with all of that, I don't know!
Most would ask why doesn't she refuse, and at times she has turned away food donations. However, if she isn't at home they leave it on her porch. I always end up getting things that she isn't going to use. My grandmother always tells me "I am sure you can think of something! You can always make a soup with it." What she fails to understand is that I don't like soup of any kind.
This is why many times when I create a recipe I will often have items in the recipe that I will whole heartedly admit that I don't know where you would find them in your local grocery store! I personally have never seen cooked pork in a can in any of my local grocery stores, for example.
I love Paula Deen! I have several of her cookbooks, and they are my saving grace through any occasion. Most of her recipes are down home and simple, and they don't use anything extravagant that I can't find in my local grocery store.
My food has to have a kick to it. I always love a little spice, whether it be a Creole recipe or a Mexican recipe. My partner is a little shy when it comes to the heat - so I always have to make his a little less spicy!
