Introduction I'm a Chef in Banker's clothing.... Right now I'm working in corporate America but my ultimate dream is to be in the kitchen. My interest in cooking started when I was 6 years old and I made "Martha's Crazy Cake" with my mom. Ever since that day I was hooked on recipes, food and cooking. I'm not sure if there is a connection between the first recipe I made and my obsession with Martha Stewart, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was... All that being said, as much as I love Martha, I think I could outcook her any day. Keep reading my blog and checking out my recipes to see if you think so too!
Interests Cooking, Bikram Yoga, Baking, Knitting, Sewing, Running/Exercising, Bike Riding, Cake Decorating, Traveling, Gardening (Vegetable & Herb), Growing Orchids, and reading Chick Lit and Celebrity Gossip (if that counts as "reading")

Favorite Books Every Cookbook ever published especially, The French Laundry Cookbook, I read about 80 books a year from other genres so I have too many favorites. Some authors that I really enjoy include Nelson Demille, Brian Haig, Jennifer Weiner, and Candace Bushnell

This one still baffles me so I guess I'm not ready for the big leagues, but I've gotten close before.
