I am an active lady, and I am not the top chef in the world, but I can hold my own. I love making things that remind me of when I was little, I love trying out new recipes, and I love learning new things to cook. Most of the recipes I post are recipes I loved that I found online, but that I have tweaked just a bit. I do have some family recipes on here too, though. I am not a fan of other people being in the kitchen when I'm making something. However, I really do like when someone shows me how to do or make something that I didn't know how to do or make before. I love to bake, probably more than anything else in the kitchen. I would've gone to culinary school to be a pastry chef if I didn't have the job I do now. I had never heard of this website until family members told me about it and once I saw it, I just knew I had to sign up! Whenever I wonder, what should we have for dinner, a side..etc.?, I turn to this site. Besides various food blogs that I frequently read, it's the best online collection of recipes I have found. I love to bike ride. I like to read, travel, kayak (I've only been twice, but I loved it), hike, camp, basically any outdoorsy stuff. I also like to make cards (birthday/thank you..etc) with scrapbooking stuff, hang out with friends, watch movies, and exercise.
