I'm 33 years old and I've cooked my whole life! One of my favorite photos of me I'm probably three and I've helped my mom mix cake batter and I've gotten it ALL over my face from helping her "clean the bowl" with the batter still in it! I used to pedal my bike to the store for ingredients to bake with in grade school. I love cooking and using up ingredients in my fridge/pantry. I don't believe in throwing a lot away. I hate measuring ingredients so I estimate a lot when cooking. Lately I have been on a big kick, cooking lots of vegan and macrobiotic foods.
