I love cooking and am always looking to try new things. I like to stay on the lighter-side, so I often make changes to recipes to make them healthier. I love whole grains and things that make my body feel fit, but I also have a sweet tooth and crave desserts. I am currently in graduate school, so I live in a tight budget. It is fun and challenging to find good ingredients to cook with with not a lot of money. My biggest challenge with that currently is finding good quality, sustainable, affordable Seafood. In addition to cooking and graduate school, I am a preschool teacher, a bartender, and a henna tattoo artist- I lead a pretty busy life but find that I am happiest when I find time to cook for myself and my boyfriend.
