My husband is the true chef in the household, but I love to dabble and try recipes myself. While Jay prefers to cook full-on main courses, I like to fix sides and appetizers the best. I also like taking photos of the food when I'm done, and seeing if I can get them looking even close to professional. My husband tells me that my problem is that I almost never fix a recipe the way it was written. I'm always, ALWAYS, trying to "improve" upon it. Sometimes it works. Many times it doesn't. I'm a technology manager. It's a job that can drain your soul, but I work for a fantastic team and I love the people I work with. I also enjoy photography, writing and gardening.
