I'm 25 years old, and my husband and I graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2006 and moved to Phoenix, AZ, where we currently are! I am a follower of Christ, and I try to live my life to glorify Him in everything. Jesus brings meaning to my life - with him I have abundant life, and without him I would be lost. I love to serve Him though serving others, and when that involves cooking or giving food to people, it's all the better! Food is such a basic, essential human need, and when you meet a person's basic physical need like that, doors are opened to be used by God to meet their deeper spiritual need, as well. The way to a person's heart really CAN be through their stomachs! I love cooking, and I love having time for it now that I'm no longer in school! I don't have a favorite cookbook...there are things I like and dislike about all the ones I have. One I really like, though, is one from the 1970s that we received from MIL...it has a neat table of all the common spices and also has a description of them, as well as the types of foods they would go well with. My husband and I love cooking together for other people, but we have very different methods of cooking. He's a "sniff-the-spices" kind of guy, and I'm a "follow-the-recipe-exactly" kind of girl. I'm learning, though. Outside of cooking, I love photography, too. It's one of my passions.
