I am a Colorado native. I have always had a thirst for knowledge. I'm sure I'm one of the Denver Public Library's biggest patrons! I tend to find a subject and research it until I know all I need to know. Perhaps that's why cooking has escaped my list of talents (until more recently)...you have to learn a lot by doing. I'm learning to enjoy the process of preparing great meals (even for a party of one, as I live alone) in hopes if I were to have family they would eat well and share that skill in their families in the future!
