I'm an all around crafty girl and love doing it all myself. Whether it's crocheting myself a cozy cap, building a jewelry organizer, blogging, or cooking a fab meal for friends, I love creating. I don't have a favorite cook book, though I do have favorite TV Chefs, Giada de Laurentiis, Ina Garten, and Jamie Oliver... They all present food in delicious but accessible and simple manners. I appreciate that. In the kitchen I love having fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables at hand at all times so I can cook whenever the mood strikes me, which is often. I used to bake a lot but now I don't as much which is a shame, maybe one day I'll get back into that.
