My passion for cooking began when I moved to Gainesville for college (Go Gators!). Ok, actually it started more like survival rather than passion. Living at home I was spoiled by my amazing cook for a mother and never really had a need to find my way around the kitchen. Fast forward to the end of my first semester and my limited recipe repertoire of peanut butter & jelly, grilled cheese, and tuna fish sandwiches was starting to get very old very fast. I had a crazy idea (I get lots of those) to invite some friends over to our apartment for a pre-Thanksgiving feast. How hard could it be? After several phonecalls to our mothers, plastic gloves and duct tape, and an itty bitty oven fire my roommate and I survived our first Thanksgiving… and much to my surprise, I loved every minute of it.
Outside of the kitchen you will probably find me spending time with my husband, playing with our (six year old) puppy, eating Thai food, working out, reading, hanging out on the boat, entertaining our friends, enjoying the beautiful outdoors… all while trying to forget about my addiction to food 🙂
