I'm 30 years old, learning to cook recipe by recipe. I'm a bit of a purist in the kitchen...for instance, I'll soon know how to make my own brown sugar, rather than buying the kind that gets all chunky, and I don't look twice at recipes that use other prepared ingredients, such as including cream of mushroom soup to make potato chowder. =P I tend to substitute out some oil for applesauce, cut salt levels down, and otherwise modify recipes to make them more healthful. Otherwise...my passions are martial arts, exercise, and computer programming, the latter of which I'm in school for. I'm also poor as dirt, which is -part- of why I'm cooking so much. The other part is that I love to create the foods I love, as well as come up with new recipes. I like to look over a few different recipes and piecemeal another together. Sometimes it works. ;D
