I am originally from Colorado but now I go to the University of British Columbia getting my major in Cognitive Systems. I love to cook and share my recipes with friends and family. I also like to knit and crochet and go out for dinner and drinks with friends. I am always looking for good Mexican and Italian dishes as that is what I grew up on, but I find that good Mexican and Italian are more scarce in BC. I was a vegetarian for awhile, but now I eat poultry regularly and beef and pork if I can't avoid it or something looks too good to pass up, but as a result a lot of my recipes are vegetarian or can be made vegetarian easily. If you happen to be a vegetarian or interested in cutting some of the meat out of your diet, I highly recommend Mark Bittman's _How to Cook Everything Vegetarian_ as it is fabulous.
