If home is where the heart is, then my heart found home when I moved from Idaho to Seattle in 2008. When I came here, it was in search of rainy days and grey skies. But as an added bonus, I began a journey into food. I have always been open the plastic and serve kind of woman and the food choices available in this city became an overwhelmingly delightful adventure ! I can now proudly say that I have ventured out from pickles being my only green vegetable I will eat and am on my way to learning how to actually cook a full meal without the smoke alarm going off. I have always believed that the best cooks are the ones that put love into it. Love the ingredients, love the journey, and always remember that food is fun.
My favorite thing in the world to eat is fresh strawberries and raspberries with a side of dark chocolate. That being said, I have yet to come across anything involving bacon and cheese that I have not been in love with.
I just finished my first marathon in June 2012 and am getting back into training mode for my second. At any given moment when I am not working, you are likely to find me listening to music while having my nose buried in any of the five books I tend to read at a time. I also watch entirely too much Doctor Who, read stacks of comic books, watch a lot of movies and am still trying to beat the same videogame I have been playing for over six years with no end in sight.
