I'm a 22 year old stay-at-home mom. My son, Lukas, was born on July 22, 2004. I met my husband on a blind date, cooked a dinner for him, and we watched 'Princess Bride' together. He couldn't resist my wonderful cooking, and fell in love with me! :P For fun, I like to play video games (any and all), read, and lurk on my favorite forum, somethingawful.com. My dad taught me how to cook when I was young, and passed his love of cooking down to me! I'm a big fan of Alton Brown, as well. My favorite cookbook is The Cook's Illustrated Best Recipes.
