Hi, I’m Janice! Welcome to my curious mind!

My curiosity about food is unrelenting. I have more questions than time. When I learn about food, I marvel. Maybe you will be fascinated to learn with me, maybe you like pretty pictures, maybe you like my recipes… and maybe I’ll amuse you with my wondering. I’m Janice! Welcome to my curious mind!

So, who is Janice anyways?

I’m just a gal that likes to cook.  I’m a working mom and head cook for our competitive BBQ team, SmellaQue. We travel and cook across North America.  <That’s cool, right?> Our success as a BBQ team has enabled invitations to cook at the American Royal World Series of BBQ, Jack Daniels World Championship BBQ and Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest. The opportunity to cook and the journey to learn along the way is incredible. For these experiences, I am so grateful.

Cooking is about ingredients, chemistry, origins, reactions, treasured moments and new adventures.  Food can be explored in different facets in my kitchen…and yours! So, explore with me! Cook with me!
