I love the four seasons-probably would never move out of the Buckeye state because of it. I am in the mental health field, contemplating on changing my career altogether to animal medicine! I have a bit of a southern twang, which a lot of people find it funny (being I'm not from the deep south, only Cincinnati south), and I'm rather tom-boyish. I love to play around, sometimes too much horse playing lands me in trouble! I love sports--baseball, football and basketball, an all out Ohio fan :)
My favorite things to cook
I monitor what I eat; I like to whop up a batch of fresh satueed vegetables. My boyfriend has borderline high cholesterol, which made it crucial for me to be more attentive to his diet needs. He is my guinea pig, I make dishes, he tries them and gives me feedback on what to do better next time. Currently I am attempting to master the art of slow cooking chili!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'll never be able to master my mom's ability to make everything from sctrach. My mom is capable of looking at a picture and replicate the same dish depicted. She's the most amazing cook--from main course to soups to deserts, just fantastic.
My cooking triumphs
I'm becoming more aware about the presentation of food now that I am preparing it. I've mastered a lot of dishes--I used to have Sunday night football fans coming over, I've whopped up healthy dishes and vegetables that they consumed without hesitation! I was proud of myself for tricking them!
My cooking tragedies
I've set many fire alarms off, burnt many skillets and easy meats (bacon, sausage). I'm impatient, I realized with cooking, it FORCES me to slow down and I enjoy that aspect of it. I learned not everything should be cooked on high heat.
