I live in Lawrence, KS, home of the Kansas Jayhawks! RockChalk! Lawrence is such a diverse town with a wide variety of locally owned restaurants. I love trying them and learning more about food. I'm an RN by trade but in my spare time, I love to read, spend time with my family & friends, cook/bake and run in the woods with my dogs, Jack and Daffodil. I also love volunteer work to include volunteering at a culinary center near my home. I have learned so much there--not just about cooking but about entertaining, too. I've been a member of Recipezaar for a few years now. It is so much fun! I love trying new recipes and interacting with interesting chefs. This is a great forum for food, friendship & fun.
