My boyfriend's father thinks I need to be more domestic, but I doubt I'll ever be a huge cook. So it is an event when I get in the kitchen and folks often ask about what I made. I prefer baking to cooking....which works well since the fella actually loves to cook (no recipes...he's a "hmm, needs a bit more basil" type....a talent I'll never have). If I make it, ANYONE can. I'm adding in a few standards and others as I make them.
I am a word-lover...both reading and writing. I am also a gym-rat, which helps counter my love for food. Anything with cheese is loved, seafood is a big fav, and any form of cookie is not safe with me. I love red wine...big, deep, full reds that only a true red wine drinker would like.
I have a JD and did a stint in a big law firm but no plans to go back to practice. Worked in legal recruiting too but still looking for the true career for me. As of the profile-write, I do write for a law blogging service for extra book and wine money.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom always did Thanksgiving and I have an odd association b/w the holiday and Barbara Streisand since she'd turn on music while cooking.
The lox rolls I've shared has become a traditional appetizer (luckily, the Christian BF is also a smoked salmon fan!!).
