Hi!! I’m Tez, lover of all things food and food related. This is my simple man`s plan to healthier eating blog.
I am originally from the east coast of the United States growing up in North Carolina, Virginia, New Jersey & Connecticut and then moving to the Seattle area for a number of years. Since 2001 I have been fortunate enough to live and work in beautiful Los Cabos, Mexico.
I don`t remember exactly when I developed a passion for being in the kitchen but have found it a great place to unwind, think, not think and simply play with food.

My inspiration for this blog actually came from my kids. I have 3 daughters who are now out of the house & in college or high school. My oldest starting calling, I`m having people over for dinner and asking how do I make this or do this? What do I need to buy, how should this look, what does minced mean etc etc. You get the picture. Well, step by step with pictures was my answer & here we are.
My likes in the kitchen are pretty mixed but am drawn heavily towards healthy, mostly clean eating comfort food. Mexican, Italian, BBQ , and definitely anything pork (you can have bacon in a salad) related are high on the list. The recipes featured are typically not technical so that the majority of anyone can cook, mix, produce and hopefully enjoy. Many of these are also relatively quick to prepare making them good choices for all the business that is life.
