Most cooks can't write because they are not trained or have no time for it in the same way that most writers can't cook on the same premise. I can do both.
While working with a daily newspaper in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, i took a short course in commercial cooking during my day-off. I am now a certified cook. It helped me a lot with my stories since I was assigned to community and lifestyle beats. Just recently, I started posting recipes in my other blogs. I just began writing online and found this site very useful and educating to me. So here I am!
