Food interests and intrigues me. I love the process of taking many different ingredients and producing one cohesive delicious whole. I have a poor sense of smell or else I'd probably have gone into cooking as a profession.As a bonus though, the poor sense of smell has come in handy in my real job - nursing! I love to read about cooking, and sometimes I actually use recipes, mostly I dream about what they'd taste like. I have about 50 cookbooks, and constantly am reading one or another of them. I look forward to the opportunities this site offers me.
