I love to cook! I always have. When I was little my older brother would let me be his sous chef (which usually meant "getting" to do the labor intensive jobs like shelling peas and wrapping dumplings) When I was growing up we all took turns cooking dinner and I was Mondays and Thursday. By now cooking really has become my hobby. Half the time I'm flipping through cook books or cooking magazines. It is what relaxes me at night and I love to plan out meals for my family and friends. I love the feeling of success with a recipe. It is almost better than the consuming itself!
