I'm a late twenties dude who ended up in the kitchen awhile ago because the girlfriend stays too busy and I get too hungry. She's a fantastic cook, very creative, so of course I try to out do her the best I can. She was kind enough to provide me with this membership for our fourth anniversary. I love it, and thank you Chyanne! In response to the "ideas..." to provide: I live in Chicago. Logan Square if you're a neighbor, c'mon by. Work - I don't feel like talking about. Fun - playing with the doggy, Huxley, and being with my girlfriend doing just about anything. Fave Cookbook - I guess my Recipezaar one. Chyanne's mom recently gave us the Frugal Gourmet cookbook. Haven't tried any of it yet, and he's apparently a perv, but i remember watching him fondly as a youngster. (Glad he couldn't see me.) Passions - Life & happiness Peeves - Oh man... Abridged version: Idiots. Fave dish to cook - Whichever one I get to eat soonest. Famous for - Well, I'll have to go with done, but not too done, fresh green beans. Lame. Otherwise, it's something I've found here. I'm famous for following directions on great recipes. Fave restaurant - Lula Cafe. Right on the Square in Logan Square. Everything I've had there is amazing. They change their menu weekly to adjust with the freshest/most local ingredients. It's really fantastic. I know I don't know you, but you should go. If you go for brunch (or anytime, I guess) have a bloody mary. Awesome!
