I grew up in Calgary, Alberta and have lived here most of my life aside from the two years I spent at the Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts in Toronto.
I have been married for 3 years. I met my husband more than 10 years ago at a local rollerskate rink when we were teenagers. He is my one and only. We have been through a lot, grown up together and are best friends. Yes, this does happen in real life from time to time.
I now work for a GoodLife Fitness Club as a Membership consultant. Fitness is a huge passion of mine, along with music, outdoor activity and food. For fun I love to sing, write, dance, hike, bike, play sports and try new activities. My most recent new activity is martial arts. I was doing Ninjitsu for a few weeks and next I would like to try Capoeira. I also love fashion and beauty, mostly as another form of expression.
I cook for many reasons. Duty, of course, but I use it as a way to express myself and try new things. I like to try different ways of cooking and new ingredients, it is like a small adventure for me. Of course nutrition is a huge priority, but I do love to bake and I really enjoy wine, margaritas, rare steak, cheese and chocolate. I get really excited when I find a meal that is low calorie, nutritious, satisfying and yummy! That is a jackpot for me.
I love variety, and I love cooking with fresh and flavourful veggies. I really enjoy making different types of salads, because the options are endless when it comes to ingredients. I make a lot of stir-fries because they are quick, easy and healthy. I really like to bake cookies, but the problem is that I also really like to eat too many of them. My husband loves when I bake for him, but my pencil skirts beg to differ, lol. I have been really sneaky and gotten him to eat healthier foods by slowly adding in veggies and different grains like quinoa.
I don't have a particular dish that I am famous for. I am known to make the same dish slightly different every time. Not to brag, but my friends and family LOVE my cooking! This is largely because of all the fabulous recipes I get from this site .
My favourite restaurants are Sorrentino's, Caesar's Steakhouse, the Keg and Redwater. I want to try new places but my man is a creature of habit and it takes a bit to get him to try a new restaurant he's never heard of. I love sushi but sadly he is allergic to most seafood, so I get my seafood fix with other family and friends.
