After a short... 11 month break?

I make another post!

I really want to start trying to cook more... I bought a smoker that I'm super stoked about (no pun intended). I think I'll start posting about my experiences, trials, and tribulations with it.

I actually haven't even unboxed the smoker yet; I've been pre-occupied with work stuff, 'other ventures', the guys from the small group and tonight's Harry Potter premier. So, needless to say, I haven't had time to really even get it out and mess with it yet.

Tomorrow, I'll post pictures of the unboxing and making some modifications to the smoker that the BBQ community says you're supposed to make.. then we're on to cooking this Saturday.

... have I mentioned she's a good cook?

So... really, I've been to the *motherland* of pizzas. Like, in real life. Rome Italy and Tuscany.. it's like, the birthplace of Cheese mixed with dough and flattened to perfection.

the perfection portion, though, doesn't belong in Italy.

We had the best pizza, *ever* the other night. Jill made this dough, from scratch in her new stand mixer... then added cheese, sauce and pepperoni, and I swear it was the best stuff ever.

Pizza from Ray's Pizza in New York didn't compare to this... swear, I ate 75% of the pizza. I completely gorged myself to the point where I felt like I couldn't breathe (it was fantastic). I just couldn't help myself... it was the best Pizza I'd ever had.

Her cookies the guys at work fight over; someone today was offering cash for someone else's Molasses Cookie that i brought in. I thought we were gonna have a fight, so I split my last one so the other guy could have one.

Really, I'm the luckiest guy in the world.
