I am 24 years old and love to cook! Growing up, my mother handled all of the cooking so I got a bit of a late start but I learn new things all the time, thanks to the internet! I love finding new recipes to try, I love learning new techniques and exploring foods from cultures around the world. Unfortunately, I love to eat even more than I love to cook so turning rich traditional meals into lighter meals has become a hobby. I enjoy the challenge of taking high-cal recipes and refining them to be easier on the waistline, while keeping all the flavor possible. Whether low-cal or original though, I always enjoy making food that is beautiful and tastes great.
