I work as a part-time nurse in our city's burn unit. In my spare time, I really enjoy browsing cookbooks, cooking magazines, and the web for recipes. I am always looking for new ways to combine common ingredients to mix things up a bit. I try to avoid recipes that call for bizarre or hard-to-get ingredients or require a special kitchen widget I will only use once. If someone were to give me something unusual, I certainly would give it a try! However, my husband and I are adventurous diners and are always willing to try something new at least twice (in case there was a problem the first time!) We enjoy everything from German to Japanese; we want to try Vietnamese next.
My husband and I own a Gold Wing motorcycle and love to travel in the warmer months. We also have three dogs: Roxy, who is a rather large (42 lb.) fox terrier cross (shown above, with me!), Shadow, who is pure-bred reverse-brindle boxer, and Maggie, a brindle boxer. They love it when "Mom" cooks because they know something yummy inevitably hits the floor!
Favourite food: sushi
Favourite ingredient: chocolate!
