Hi- I'm Mique (as in Mickey). I started 30days as an idea file a few years ago. After three years and hundreds of ideas, I now realize that I'll never check them all off my list. When I'm not creating, I love spending time with family and friends and long drives, especially if they end at the beach.

    The one recipe I wanted – Kung Pao Chicken – would only come up as chicken enchiladas on this site. I tried several times. My loss.
