RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I moved from Ohio to the West Coast about 4 years ago and I currently work as an assistant at an intellectual property law firm in Silicon Valley. I love to cook and experiment in the kitchen. I'm not much of baker, though, since I hate to measure my ingredients. Like most everyone else these days, I am always on the lookout for low-calorie recipes. I recently married and I try to cook dinner for my husband and I at least 6 times a week, which he heartily supports. When I'm not cooking or browsing through cookbooks from the library or second-hand store, I can usually be found knitting something, playing video games with DH, or just watching tv. I also love exploring the great outdoors, whether it be hiking, kayaking, biking, or just doing a little sightseeing around town. I am finishing up a paralegal certificate at the community college and am now considering preparation for law school. The crockpot recipes here definitely helped us stay fed while I was taking night classes! <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif"> "My motivation to cook is that I'm always hungry." -Jacques Pepin
