I moved from Ohio to the West Coast about 4 years ago and I currently work as an assistant at an intellectual property law firm in Silicon Valley.
I love to cook and experiment in the kitchen. I'm not much of baker, though, since I hate to measure my ingredients. Like most everyone else these days, I am always on the lookout for low-calorie recipes. I recently married and I try to cook dinner for my husband and I at least 6 times a week, which he heartily supports.
When I'm not cooking or browsing through cookbooks from the library or second-hand store, I can usually be found knitting something, playing video games with DH, or just watching tv. I also love exploring the great outdoors, whether it be hiking, kayaking, biking, or just doing a little sightseeing around town. I am finishing up a paralegal certificate at the community college and am now considering preparation for law school. The crockpot recipes here definitely helped us stay fed while I was taking night classes!

My absolute comfort food is my grandma's potpie, known to most Americans as chicken and dumplings. I don't make it very often because the dumplings are made from scratch, so it is quite time-consuming, but it is so good on a cold Sunday afternoon. I am also a big fan of pierogies, cabbage rolls, and chicken paprikash (we're eastern european, can you tell? ;-) ) as well as any type of starch imaginable. You name it, pasta, potatoes, rice, I will eat it. And lots of it. So far I have no recipe of my own where people say, "Oh remember that _____ she made? It was so good." All I have are a couple recipes I stole from other members of my family, including the aforementioned potpie, my aunt's sausage dressing recipe, and a pie recipe my mom stole from a Jell-o box about 20 years ago. When I am not in the kitchen, my BF and I usually turn to one of the local restaurants here, a Mexican place a couple yards from our apartment. During the winter, though, we will often drive to San Francisco for some fresh crab legs or we will go to a pho or ramen restaurant for a steaming hot bowl of noodles.
