I love to cook, a lot. I like to play with recipes and work them to meet my tastebuds. I'm also pretty obsessed with ways to make food more healthful and flavorful at the same time. I am grad student and full time crisis worker. I spend a great deal of free time preparing for my Pre-Lost Dinner Parties. They are a lot of fun and full of laughter and great food. I am a member of a gourmet cooking club, which is just an excuse for most of my friends to get together and cook really great food. We pick an ingredient or cuisine and everyone has to cook a dish under the perimeters. Good fun.
