This is a picture of my boyfriend and me at my company's fancy holiday party in December 2007. I graduated with my BA in musical theatre a few years ago. I'm now living in the big city doing the 9-5 thing while I try to make this acting thing work. Theatre and singing (and my boyfriend!) are what fire me up, but cooking is what chills me out. I love to come home and try a new recipe. In August 2006 I was diagnosed with a gluten allergy, and I've also been diabetic since the age of 14 so food can sometimes be a challenge; but I love experimenting in the kitchen and finding new options.
