I love cooking, but do not have a great deal of time. I love all types of food, but am trying to focus on low fat whole foods. I enjoy ethnic cooking. My favorite thing to do on vacation is visit local grocery stores to see how the natives shop and cook. I have three children and a hungry husband so trying to find simple, fast, nutrious and fun food can be challenging. I love Barefoot Contessa, and Jamie Oliver cookbooks, as well as cookbooks predating the 1920's.
