I'm married and have a daughter. I'm a homemaker and I sell Pampered Chef on a very part time basis. I'm a feltmaker, weaver, spinner and knitter which takes up a good deal of my time.
I love trying new things in the kitchen and challenging myself. I like making things from scratch to avoid refined and processed foods and I'm a whole grain bread baker. I like baking using natural sweeteners like honey, molasses and maple syrup.
For special occasions I like to go all out and make and decorate cakes, which really goes against the whole unprocessed, unrefined foods thing but oh well. I like to use fondant and think I do a pretty good job considering I've never taken a class.
I love my freezer and making my own "convenience" foods so I know what's in them. We mostly eat locally and based on the season but of course we use a good deal of olive oil and some things just have to be imported.
I like to cook in themes and I often find myself meal planning based on locations featured books I read. I also read cook books for fun and can easily whittle away a whole day readling them. The library is a great source.
I love fresh vegetables, salads, garlic and olive oil. Freshly baked whole grain bread (when it's done right-not when it's a brick). Some of my favorite cuisines are Mediterranean, Italian and Eastern European but I really like to cook all kinds of cuisines. Variety is the spice of life (that and fresh local ingredients).
