Tears for Fears
I Sank Molly Brown

I love to cook. It's therapeutic in so many ways for me, whether
it's done by myself or with others or for others.
My favorite cuisine is Ethiopian. I also enjoy Indian, Thai,
Vietnamese, Lebanese, Greek, Italian, Mexican. Basically anything.
I love sushi. I also enjoy vegan foods and gluten-free foods and
often experiment with them in the kitchen. Can we talk about
desserts, please? Carrot cake (especially from Tony's Market),
cheesecake, Spring Fling (from The Market in Denver), tres leches
cake, pecan pie, my pistachio cranberry white chocolate fudge,
Nutella, and bitter chocolates. These are all so amazing.
I really love beer. Deeply.
