I have lived in Central Virginia my whole life. Currently I live in Chesterfield County, which is just outside of Richmond. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I currently work as as an emergency services therapist for one of the local Community Services Boards. I have been married since 2000. My husband works for UPS. Cooking is one of my very favorite hobbies. I just love to read cooking magazines, watch cooking shows, surf the net for cooking web sites, read cook books and of course get into the kitchen. My husband calls me the "mad scientist" when I am in the kitchen. I tend to be a VERY messy cook! I think my favorite cookbook is The Cook's Bible by Christopher Kimball. I have other past times as well. I love to Garden and work out at the gym. If I had a month off I would travel at a leisurely pace to Europe or maybe even Hawaii.
