San Antonio, Texas
I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as soon as I could: less road rage, almost no snow and great food!
I'm a 22 year Army veteran, I've been to Somalia, Guantanamo Bay, Sarajevo, Kosovo, Baghdad and Kabul over the course of my career.
I have six kids: Michelle, Christy, Christine, Nick, Mike and Joanne. I don't see them as much as I'd like, but I think of them all the time.
Cooking is a passion of mine - it's a gift you give to family and friends every day. I keep an online journal of food that I've prepared at http://smokeybills.net/
