Hello to all, I have been visiting the Roadfood site for about a year but only to look at the reviews never went on the "threads" until very recently. Raised in CT and did 12 years in the Navy right after HS and then ended up right back where I started not that I mind actually I thought at first I would hate coming back home (14 years ago) but it all worked out, I had the opportunity to live in and travel to many places in my service years so I guess that's why I like this sight, oh yeah I love food too.

Well I wasn't feeling very creative when I registered and didn't see this so I guess after being registered and an infrequent poster over the last year or so, I'll make my late introduction.

mlinkinhoker - aka Music City Missy, Missy, Mel, or my given name, Melissa. Live in Brentwood, the southern suburb of Nashville. Moved here from the place I was born and raised, Jackson, MS in 1987. I am a construction project manager. Married to Jeff. One daughter almost 16 (YIKES!) and two stepsons - 29 and 31.

I grew up in firehouse kitchens, country kitchens and Greek diners. I started cooking early in life - everything from good old country down home food to trying anything and everything I saw in the magazines and my grandmother's McCall's cookbook. By my teens I had graduated and gone to even more gourmet cooking. At age 17, I had my own catering business and have continued to do a little catering here and there including my first movie (a short) last year - that was fun to see my name on the big screen!

I love nothing more than cooking for people - there is nothing you can do to show your care and love more than cooking for people. And the most wonderful things happen when people get together around food - look at how much fun we had the friendships made here and last Saturday on the RoadFood tour of Nashville!

A couple of years ago I decided to finally get a college degree so I am a couple of courses away from having my culinary arts degree and my first level of certification from the American Culinary Institute. And yes I was having a fit Sunday when we were checking in the chefs at the Sheraton Music City and the dogs were running around having their accidents everywhere - we had our trade show in the room where the dog show was as well as our lunch yesterday - I sure hope they shampooed the carpets Sunday night! That has been bothering me all week.

Hope to have a chance to meet more of you and if you are vern in the Nashville area - let me know

Mel,
Welcome (officially) to Roadfood!!!

Our two Scotties were very concerned about the dogs that were at the hotel for the dog show. We always walk them some distance from any human walk-way to 'exercise' them...but the dog show people took dozens of dogs to the edge of the sidewalk just 10 feet from the main entrance and "Let 'em Rip". That area did look a bit like a busy barnyard by Sunday Morning.
I will say the Hotel was way-more than accomodating for the pets in tow.

All those beige and white dogs looked down their show-dog noses at our Scotties. I am sure our dogs were the butt of many ethnic jokes by the dogs in the show! But that's ok. Our dogs were recognized as Official Roadfood Travelers, and that beats a dog show everytime.
Glad to meet you and hope your trade show went well.

Missy, I moved to Jackson from Clarksdale about the time you left. Do you ever get back? You probably barely recognize it now. Let me know when you're going to be here.

Hi all. I've been reading threads and reviews for about a year now and over time I've really gotten hooked on this site and many of the folks who contribute to it. I've always been fascinated by food but only an average cook. It's really fun to read other people's recipes and try them out!

I grew up in Barrington, IL in the '40s and '50s. Went to college in Virginia and Ohio. Taught in Ohio for a few years and moved to Prescott, AZ to help my dad in his business (wholesale cut flowers). We have one son who is a LCDR in the Navy and is in the Middle-East right now.

Next year, when I retire, we would love to do lots of travelling and try out many of the wonderful sounding roadfood restaurants that I've read about here!

Welcome to Roadfood Lynn! I grew up in nearby Algonquin in the 50's back when all that was still "country". Did you ever go to Simonini's in Algonquin?

Klando - Yes, I do remember Simonini's, it was one of my mom's favorites! Do you remember Lucky Simonini and her harp? Someone once told me that they called her Lucky because she was the only girl and had lots of brothers. Do you know if they are still open? Thanks for the welcome!

Desertdog - Thanks for the welcome! Do you ever get to Prescott Valley? If you do, have you tried Zekes? The have wonderful burgers, especially the patty melt, and huge portions of everything!

Lynn, all the Simonini's had nicknames, Lucky's one brother was called Tubby and used to be a pitcher for the White Sox. Lucky was involved with show business so I always thought the name came from that. The restaurant burned many years ago and was never revived. Lucky and one of her brothers went on to manage a place in McHenry, Tubby worked for the Kane County Cougars, a class A baseball team in Geneva, Il as a goodwill ambassador. "Sims" as everyone called it, was very popular with Chicago sports stars of the time.

Kland0 - Thanks for the information about Simonini's. I haven't been there for about 44 years and always wondered! Along the same lines, do you remember Farman's in Lake Zurich? Always seemed to be a big hangout for the jockeys from Arlington Park. I got a bunch of autographs when I was about 12 (including Johnny Longdon's). Good to talk to someone from home! I left there when I was 18 and never really got back except for a few vacations. Also hung out with friends at Massi's in Dundee when I was home from school. Good pizza!

Is that the place at the far end of a shopping center on your left as you come in from the freeway? I went to a place around there for breakfast a couple years back, some great B&G as I remember.

I'll have to check it out. I am a huge Patty Melt fan, although I always seem to end up in the Prescott Brewing Company when I am up that way.

Desertdog - The Zeke's I'm talking about is in Prescott Valley, not Prescott, and is in its own building. They consistantly have the best patty melt I've ever had. I'll have to try the B&G. It's across from the Harkins Theater on Center Court. I agree about Prescott Brewing Company - it's my favorite! Specially love their crab cakes and fish n chips. We live in Prescott Valley but I work in Prescott so I have been to most of the restaurants except the newer ones around the plaza - they change hands so often I can't keep up!

When I grew up in Algonquin, we all went to Dundee High (which doesn't exist anymore) so Masi's was our hangout! Small world. I moved about 30 miles south in the early 70's but my dad was in Algonquin unitl 2002 when he passed away. Another good memory that is still there and going strong is Port Edward, wonderful seafood, right on the Fox River. Masi's still exists but only as a carry out in a different location.

I should probably have done this first thing off...

Catalase- the username is a biology joke. It's the enzyme that allows you to breathe oxygen and not die, by turning the hydrogen peroxides that tend to form into water and oxygen. Most of my online handles shorten to "Cat", which is my RL nickname to a lot of people, so there you have it.

Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, spent four years in college studying biology in New Orleans, now resident in Los Alamos, New Mexico. I didn't discover the joys of the roadfood ethos until I was in my twenties, but now my first question when traveling (and just about the only way to get me to do it) is "Where and what can I eat?" I have a mental checklist of regional specialties I absolutely must try if/when I get the chance. It's, um, long. As for cooking, I have a simple relationship with my husband- he does the cooking and I do the research. I can trawl for food porn as long as some young men can for the regular kind.

No kids, but we do have a delightfully psychotic Siamese cat and one Akita dog, plan to add another one of those when the right litter or rescue comes along.

Hello everyone! I happened to find myself here after googling "special edition M&Ms" and now I could spend a good hour just reading all the threads here. I feel like I might be one of the youngest ones here im 25.

Hi! My name is Phil Foreman and I guess I have been interested in food since Momma put her...; uhhh, we won't go there. I found this terrific site while looking for something or the other on Google and thought I'd give it a peek; glad I did! I've posted the adress informally on my own web site and the response has been very good. At Ohio Camp Cooks we strive to preserve the historic methods of gathering, processing, and preparing foods for the table as well as document the current technology and trends. We are a mixed bag of sportsmen, cooks, chefs, historic re-enactors who all share two qualities: (1) a love for the out doors (2) a love for good food. The staff and members here have done a terrific job with this site and I'm sure that our membership will appreciate their visits.

I visited your website. How about adding some food pics?

I'm going to go back and visit the forums and things when I have more time.

Oh, sorry, and WELCOME TO ROADFOOD!

Hey, all!

Sean here. I've been lurking for years now, but a back condition limited the amount of time I could spend online. Now my work station has an internet connection -- so much for the work part of work station.

I'm a wannabe writer/artist (I've had enough success so that it doesn't seem like a fantasy, but not enough to make it seem like a living -- if you want a taste of my older work, just Google Sean Craven and you'll probably find something.) and former manual laborer. I'm also that rarity of rarities -- a native Californian. My family's been here since it was all missions and Russians, and as a result I'm less the granola-type Californian and a bit more of a redneck type. I've been called a cryptohick...

I'm currently balancing school and personal projects (a novel and an online comic strip are in the works), have been with the missus for nineteen years, have two nieces, a granddaughter and a grandson, and play bass guitar for relaxation.

I don't travel much, but my dad and I hike all over the Bay Area and lunch goes along with the walk. We tend to prefer Roadfood-type places, particularly hamburger joints.

The real importance of this site for me is the inspiration for my cooking. I'm one of those nutjobs that likes to make things from scratch, likes to try and expand his menu from time to time. I owe my barbecue, my biscuits and gravy (I use both condensed milk and fresh sage. Sorry about that.), and my current approach to mac and cheese to this site and y'all.

I promise to be on my best behavior. Such as it is.
