Culinary Experience

I Just Like Food

About Me:

I am an avid cook, and cookbook reviewer. I grew up in the food industry, my family owned restaurants, and night clubs in Salt Lake City. I have been to culinary schools, but have not graduated yet. I move a whole lot, with my husband in the military, and have had to change my focus. My current goal is to get a degree in nutrition, and be a private chef. I am married, with 3 boys, 3 cats, and a greyhound at home right now. I love to garden, and try to do it no matter where I live. In Korea I had a huge tomato plant hanging off of my balcony, as well as my herbs that grew like crazy. Missouri was great, you plant it, it grows! Now I am in Colorado where the short growing season and high altitde have me planting in pots on my balcony, and deck once again. There is nothing like freshly grown herbs, and vegetables. I just harvested some of my blackberries and they are soo good fresh!

I also foster greyhounds. This is a very rewarding thing to do. Once greyhounds are retired they are picked up by local groups that take them in and teach them how to be pets. I get to teach them how to go up and down stairs, what a reflection is, where to go potty, what a soft doggy bed is, and what a toy is. It is a lot of fun to see them try things for the first time. The hardest things is letting them go when they get adopted to their forever homes.

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Cooking, reading, writing, hiking, and exploring local areas. Studying my Bible.

What I do for a living:

I stay at home right now. Still working towards being a private chef.
