I am currently in college at UCDAVIS in Davis CA I have always had a passion for food, cooking, eating, eating mostly ever since i came to college cooking has become more important than ever. With no mama in the kitchen and housemates who's every meal comes from a restaurant or the freezer or the microwave, i became the sole person in charge of my diet. However unlike at home where the cubboards and fridge was always filled with whatever my brothers and I craved, this was not the case, nor would it ever be on a budget of 50$/week. I started to utilize every possible source of how to eat well on a budget, i started to find out what foods were cheap (fresh/frozen produce, in season fruit, grains and legumes) and what was not so cheap (bags of chips, prepared frozen dinners, the entire snack food isle haha) and through this i began creating meals that were not just filling and cheap, but yummy and healthy. I got so good at it that my entire house (thats 5 other people besides me 3 of which are BIG eaters) has grown somewhat dependent on my cooking. I even get called mama sach from time to time. About me personally, i love the foodnetwork, i love to workout (run, gym, weights, soccer), i am double majoring in Communications and Psychology and i have a passion for life. I grew up in Santa Monica, which is a beach community of LA, and began taking an intrest in cooking at an early age. I love the beach (and miss it since i live 2 hours inland) and the sun. I enjoy a good beer, a good movie, and a good time, especialy with good people!!
