I am a 40 something average guy who was born and raised in Brooklyn. I value my faith, my family and my country. I love dogs, especially my Great Pyrenees rescue and all animals. I love to eat and I love to cook. I am proud of my ethnic culture and this is my way of sharing a little bit about my growing up in Brooklyn, my wonderful family and my love of cooking. So many people ask me for recipes after they eat something I prepared. I thought this would be a great way to memorialize them. I hope you enjoy my story and the recipes.
