I love food! I am always amazed that there are always new things to try... even foods I hated as a child are often a new thing to love. I'm always interested in trying gourmet or cultural favorites. I dabble in the kitchen on whims mostly. Usually spurred on by upcoming events, parties, etc. I especially love a great presentation. Outside the kitchen I like reading to my kids, classic lit, fantasy, Harry Potter mania stuff, church stuff (weird mix?-- I think not). Right now we are in the mid-madness of getting the kids ready with their 4-H projects and getting ready to help with church camp which we volunteer for.
