Whenever I hear the phrase "roadhouse style", I immediately think of frogs legs, breaded, flash fried and then tossed in lemon garlic parsley butter. It may be a Michigan thing because so many restaurants have it on the menu. I love simply fried calamari served with almost any kind of dipping sauce, but thought a ramped up roadhouse version might taste great.. —inpatskitchen

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining.
My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
