I LOVE to cook - especially breads, and desserts. I almost always try out new recipes when I have friends over for dinner. I work for the Blood and Tissue Center of Central Texas, in the reference lab. I love my job, as it is challenging and changes daily. For fun, I love to go CW dancing, read, and go to the movies. I really don't have a favorite cookbook. Instead, I have numerous cookbooks and have several favorites in each one. Passions? I guess good wine, family, friends, and good food, obviously.
