Hello.. welcome to my page, thank you for dropping by. I am ...*as my mom says* "jack of all trades, master of non"..hehe.. a freelance Graphic Designer + Fitness and Nutritionist, and ..well...when I'm not working, (winter is for hibernating)... I'm usually planning a party, and amazing food is always on top of my list!! *Zaars has been so helpful! ...thank you to everyone, you really are all wonderful to share so many good recipes* Things I enjoy... drawing, everything to do with bodybuilding, reading (I love reading recipe books.. and I know they are others here who do too..(so now I don't feel weird..hehe), baking, trying out new foods (cooking and eating!), painting (well, everything art related).. at the moment attempting mural painting! I've been cooking since I was 10 (way back then..hehe).. but it's amazing how much there is about cooking/baking/food that I still have yet to learn. I prefer cooking from scratch (it's just the way everyone in my family cooks).. and so, I usually skip 'box cake' recipes, etc. I have a passion for 'international recipes'.. and usually that's the first dishes I will try to make. (I have a some what muddled up background, so this makes everything international to me..hehe wonderful huh?) One of my favourite cookbooks is 'The Around The World Cookbook' ... it's the one book I seem to follow the the recipe as is.
