I grew up near Woodward Avenue in Royal Oak, Mi...now famous for the Woodward Dream Cruise. During the 1960s, Woodward was the place to cruise and be seen at any of the drive-in restaurants - Big Boy, Mavericks, Big Town, Hobo's, Ted's including The Totem Pole which served a double decker burger called "The Big Chief" and a single called "The Little Chief". This one was different than other doubles because of its unusual sauce and that it included sweet pickles.I give my take on "The Little Chief" here: —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!
