I live in beautiful New Hampshire where we get to enjoy all four seasons. I don't have any children yet, but I have 2 kitties; Otto, and Lazareth. I recently got married to my DH Gerald (November '09). I like to create jewelry and am now partnering with my MIL on a side business doing so (Art Marketing). I am also working on writing a book in my spare (ha!) time. I would like to be able to visit Hawaii, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, and New Zealand some day. Cooking is one of my biggest passions. I would say I started cooking at about 7 years old in self-defense. My mom couldn't boil water without an instruction manual. (The poor woman could burn cold cereal!) Up until 2002'ish I had been mostly an improvisational cook. In the last few years I started thinking of actually using "real recipes" (for things other than baking) to learn more about ethnic cuisines and get familiar with their common ingredients and techniques. At the moment, I am into Asian foods like Thai, Indian, Chinese, and Japanese. So, here you find me!
