This is Me
My name is Sarah and I'm food Obsessed. About three weeks ago I won the first faceless recipes contest and was given a free two year subscription to AR. I started using All Recipes last year when I was planning the Christmas get together with the inlaws.
I go through flavour phases and at the time I was obsessed with all things Carribean. I had decided on my menu but needed a recipe for jerked pork, I googled it and stumbled upon this site. I started saving recipes immediately and browsed this site off and
on for several months. In the Spring I accidently clicked on the the "Recipe Exchange" button and discovered a wonderful community of home cooks. I spent time there daily chatting and discussing food with people who were just as food obsessed as I am. From
that day on I've been hooked on this site. It feeds my cooking addiction and makes me feel normal.
I've been baking since I was a child, but my obsession began in my mid-teens when I went through a vegetarain phase. I started experimenting with different sources of protein. The first thing I ever cooked that was not a treat was a very simple chick pea
curry. My whole family tried it and liked it and I was hooked. I started borrowing cook books from the library and copying recipes down into a binder. I still have that binder, only now it has expanded to two that are both overflowing. I love spices and
use them with abandon in my cooking.
My children and my nieces
Aside from cooking I'm a very busy married stay at home mom, I have a 4 year old and three 3 year olds. I often babysit my nieces so a housefull of kids is the norm around here. I'm an animal lover and a "tree-hugging dirt-worshipper". I love to garden and
I'm a bit of a health nut, I lost 50 pounds last year and I'm struggling with keeping it off. I work out but don't usually enjoy it.
