I'm a newly-realized West Coast City Girl who's been uncovering a true passion for food and cooking over the past few years. It began with watching public television food programs every now and then and has evolved into near-daily research into the science behind turning out something show-stopping! My current living situation doesn't allow for much cooking or baking for now, but that hasn't at all impeded my interest in researching recipes and honing my passion through discovery of excellent local bakeries and restaurants.
