Things I Love to Eat & Make
My 2 Favorite Cuisines are Greek and Texas Bar-B-Q. I know what a combo! Why are they my favorites? I'm Greek and raised on this cuisine. As for the Bar-B-Q part, when my parents immigrated to the States they opened a Bar-B-Q restaurant . It's been a part of my life from a baby and I love it!
