I like to cook.
My favorite day would probably include a sunny day, some friends and standing over my grill. The gourmet stuff, though, is not my forte. That’s not the case for all Granite Staters, as I’ve become accustomed to eating at some fine establishments (including – if not exclusively – some home-cooked meals).
