Welcome to my site I Am Chef Apple – Living Life on the Edge of a Frying Pan… Today is my birthday and I am so excited about beginning this blog, I’m a bit of a dork, but aren’t we all? And if you’re not, you’re missing the fun side of life. I love making people laugh, cooking and just being.

I would like to take this opportunity to personally invite you to my blog. Here you’ll find… Stories, Photos, Recipes, Favorite Products, Food Prints, Food Neurosis…and an Occasional Hot Topic or Two! A lover of all things culinary and a fiend for beauty and art…

As I’ve mentioned earlier, I’m a big goof, I love to laugh and smile, use curse words – especially FUCK, but one thing that I am most serious about is food. I love food, I love cooking for my friends and family and having get togethers.

Here is a quick briefing of me…

I thought it would be cool to point out some of the things that make me, well Me…

I’m useless at politics and religion – I do believe that All paths lead to GOD! Maybe not ALL the paths that I take, but, I believe nonetheless.


I kinda do things at my pace, which varies depending on the project, who I’m doing it for or the deadline. I don’t like to drive, it makes me anxious, but if I have to, I prefer long trips, because I HATE TRAFFIC! I’m not really a morning person – I love my bed. I’ve got a pretty good sense of humor. I believe whole-heartedly: fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. I’ve been to hospital several times – for my eyes, after several car-crash (all not my fault), sinuses, allergies, trips and falls. I have a memory like a reversible seive – It holds all the crap I wish it didn’t. I love computers and the web – I find it challenging. I have phases where I read a lot and then suddenly stop til the next phase starts. I used to be gullible, but now I’m jaded, sarcastic and cynical.

I’m a non practicing Roman Catholic, who still prays the rosary. I worry too much, sometimes I don’t worry enough. I’m a very good listener and care deeply for others. Words with more than four syllables scare me. I’m terrified of taking exams. I’m terrified of failing (the above and this fear were installed into me as a child in a Roman Catholic household).

My last holiday was in 1998. I love the Lucky (I try to get as Lucky as possible on a regular basis) Jeans Brand, Lewis Black, Margaret Cho, Katt Williams, Kathy Griffin, Dane Cook, Alex Mapa, Bill Engvall and Ron White to name but a few, make me laugh, a lot. I love U2, Adele, Florence and The Machine, Lenny Kravitz, Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Andrea Bocélli, Barbra Streisand, Neil Diamond and whatever else I can cram on my iPod, iPhone, iPad and any other electronic device with speakers.

I’m hopeless at math, but due to adding license plates I’m getting pretty good. I’m a TV crime buff. I love going to the movies by myself, but will make an exception if I really like the person who I am going with. I ride motorcycles in  my spare time. I’m an avid blogger. I’ve lived in Baltimore for 8 years, every time, I make plans to leave, I’m offered a gig that keeps me here – but that shit won’t be happening this time – cos I’m blowing this popsicle stand. I haven’t gotten the hang of twitter, but I’m obsessed with facebook. I’m a romantic and believe that my soul mate is out there. I have social anxiety around large groups of people. I’m totally in love with someone who is a friend and it is the bane of my existence. There is nothing worse than loving someone you can’t be with. I dig cowboy boots, I love my dog and two cats.

That’s all I can think of now, but, I’ll keep adding to it…

I will be completely honest with you, I am not one to hold my tongue, I say what’s on my mind and generally what most people are thinking, but don’t have the balls to say. If you’re someone who is easily offended or needs to be coddled then this is definitely not the site for you, if you can take being told like it is and reading stuff bluntly put, then, I would love to hear comments, ideas & suggestions!

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to hearing from you!
