I have always loved to cook. My mom is an awesome cook and my grandmother an even better one. I think i loved to cook ever since i was little and was watching Julia Child on PBS. I also like to make them look good as well as taste good. This is actually my first attempt at broiling. And to let you know it didn't turn out bad at all.
