I currently live in Denver, CO, but am a native of Michigan. I love skiing, shopping, cooking, Detroit sports, and my alma mater - the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. As is true for most people who enjoy cooking, I don't have nearly the time I'd like to experiment in the kitchen - although I must admit I'm more of a recipe-following experimentor than a create-my-own-recipe type. I love to try new recipes and to the never-ending frustration of my husband, the more complex, the more inclined I am to try them. My favorite cookbook is The Foster's Market Cookbook, and I love Alton Brown on the Food Network.
