This IS The Place Where I Share Recipes, Review And Giveaway Food And Let You Know How Much I love Food. I am a cook at a local hospital and I believe nearly everything we do has to do with food. I will take pictures of food, write articles and relate them to food in some way. Remember, whatever you do, you need to eat. This Bog is affiliated with Daddy Waddy Weeviews, but is run by me, Kurt Borkowski. I will add a picture in the next few weeks. .
