I am a grad of the University of Oklahoma but transplanted myself to Los Angeles in the fall of 2009. I'm also a photographer and studio manager--my partner Christina and I own a studio specializing in modern portraiture of people and animals. In my free time, I like to play with our four cats, take photographs, listen to music, tweak recipes (especially to make delicious but healthy foods), write poetry, and read. My current cookbook crush is Molly Katzen's Sunlight Cafe. My pet peeves are overly sugary foods--I never use artificial sweeteners, but I will try to replace them with better natural alternatives and/or cut the amount in a recipe--and hydrogenated oils. They are the fastest route to early death! I also try and stay away from white flour and other refined junk whenever possible. Fiber is my friend. ;)
