About me:
I really started cooking when I was assigned the title "Chief Steward" aboard a 50 passenger ship called the "Pacific Link". I was 18 years old, vegetarian, living in Fiji and serving with an international missions' organization called YWAM. Talk about being thrown into cold water! I had never 'cooked' for 50 people in my life -let alone, three times a day (plus preparing morning and afternoon 'tea' and cooking for special fundraising events). But what an experience! Now, I am married (cooking only for myself and my hubby - although we share the work!), no longer vegetarian, and living in beautiful British Columbia. I am a third year nursing student looking forward to graduating next year. Like the profession I am going into, I am 'big' into health promotion. I like to mirror this in the way I live. So I eat healthy, eat everything else in moderation, laugh lots, and exercise. The key is balance. I'm all about balance.
