Hi, I am currently taking my masters in social work, but cooking is my passion. I just would not be able to stand the hours working in a restaurant. I would never see my husband. So I am an amateur chef. I judge cooking contests like the Canadian national BBQ tournament etc. and love cooking for friends and family. I have a cookbook in process. Who knows if I will ever try to publish it but I will definitely give it as gifts to friends and family. My favourite parties to host are theme parties eg. I Okboberfest, Mexican and Thai etc. I generally do the research and each person can either choose from the recipes I have found or bring one of their own. I like to give the option since a lot of people don't necessarily have any recipes for that particular theme party. Anyway its fun. I nice break from University and a really good excuse to get together with friends and family. My other favourite things are gardening, knitting, sports and fitness. I also volunteer for a nursing home working with altzheimers and senile dementia patients, and for big sisters and I work part time for Planned Family Networks matching young adults with mental and / or physical challenges with a network of people they can count on when their parents can no longer take care of them. FYI This was the only day I've ever had straight hair. It was great while it lasted but I'm not spending an hour staightening it whan I can shower and do practically nothing by leaving it curly.
