I live right outside Wash DC in a Maryland suburb. I work for the federal government (doesn't everyone in DC?) For fun I cook/bake, garden, ride motorcycles, and love on my 4 dachshunds. I am also a Reiki practitioner which helps me feed my need to nurture and heal. Cooking is a creative outlet for me, and a way to show love to my friends and family. I LOVE good tasty home made food. Married to a meat and taters sort of guy, but we have developed a don't ask, don't tell arrangement when it comes to trying my cooking. His tastes have really expanded since our marriage.
