Hi all! Just a bit about me I suppose... I live in Chicago,IL, the city of big shoulders, one of the finest cities in the world! I spend my days at the Shedd aquarium with the belugas, dolphins, penguins, and otters there (mostly getting wet and dirty!) And I'm also workin' on my masters in marine biology. I love to cook, and have found Zaar to be a wonderful resource full of great food and great folks... two of the most important things in life :) Being born in Israel and of Tunisian decent, food is naturally quite important to me.. so this is fun!
