As my nickname might imply, one of my hobbies does have something to do with bikes. The motorized kind, I enjoy endurance motorcycle riding. I'm a big fan of car racing too, particularly the European stuff, road racing, and endurance car racing, not so much NASCAR, but no offense. The Beau and I get to take his car out once in a while for autocross and basically drive like speed demons and not get in trouble. I love driving in general and am one of the few nutz who enjoys shopping for cars.
But I also love to cook. Believe it or not, my mom doesn't think I can cook. But she couldn't cook, so that's probably how she got on that track. My sister and I were latchkey kids and learned to help in the kitchen at a young age and I consider cooking a great outlet for my creative bits.
I work full time but am in school on and off part time, plus try to keep up with current events and life in general, plus teach a weekly class to my co-workers, plus just hanging out with The Beau and all our good friends. Oh and I also pet/house-sit -- I used to do it for friends but recently hired on with a "company" and am now kinda one of their contractors. I'm a dog freak but don't have a good setup for dogs, so pet-sitting is how I get my dog fix. I have a kitty, she's 18 and at her age I figure she deserves a taste of whatever's on my plate.
Just about all of it. Except ketchup. Ketchup is horrible and I avoid cooking with it at all costs. I throw ours out the day before the expiration date so The Beau is always having to buy more. :) And I'm lethally allergic to shrimp, so I just sub into recipes that look fab otherwise with chix or something equitable.
I love beer pairings, but I have Crohn's and sometimes, for some reason, my Crohn's and beer don't get along, but I also love wine and wine pairings, so I'm usually swilling something to taste and wonder about pairing.
I also love cooking with 'booze'. I love subbing to see what works and what might not work. Calvados is a weakness of mine and if I review a recipe of yours that includes apple or brandy or such, I might be inclined to use Calvados as that's what I almost always have on hand.
