Hi everyone. My name is Peter and this blog is a labor of love expressing my passion for cooking and bringing family and friends around the kitchen table. I am a Fifty plus year old Husband and Father from Chicago. Our experience of food is something that sticks with us. Food is our fuel. And as the title suggests, food fills our bellies, but more importantly, fills our souls. The chance to share my experiences in the kitchen with my guests and with my readers, is you giving me the opportunity to share what I love doing. So I thank you for being there and joining me on this journey.
