I really despise writing these sorts of things which is rather asinine because I love talking about myself.
I started this blog so that I could teach myself how to cook. I am the offspring of two amazing cooks so I was never motivated to learn growing up. I was always an excellent baker--in fact, when I get stressed, I bake. If I'm really stressed, I'll bake hundreds of cookies or ten pies (oddly, this is common in my family). But I didn't know how to cook. And I've learned. I've learned so much in the last three years. I can now confidently cook a coursed meal for a crowd, which I love.
I just finished my PhD and moved to the Washington DC area, which was a big, exciting move.
Other information? I'm a Scorpio, I love animal print (especially snakeskin), my favorite piece of kitchen equipment is my immersion blender, I hate cinnamon and bell peppers, and I'm allergic to almost all fruit. My favorite actor is Cillian Murphy, I hate watching cooking shows on TV, I'm strangely obsessed with the 80's, and I have over 100 pairs of shoes.
