I consider myself to be a very laid back, calm, easy going person who enjoys herself most when the people around her are at ease and enjoying themselves too. I usually go out of my way to make sure those around me are included in the fun, because the more the merrier. I actively dislike drama and confrontation and avoid people who drag that kind of baggage around with them.
I have a great passion for food, cooking, and ingredients, and am constantly reading up on popular restaurants, new cookbooks, and food policy in the US (the ONLY thing in politics I find interesting). I am especially passionate about local foods and food artisans, and am head over heels whenever I find a new bakery that makes their own sourdough.
I am in the process of perfecting my own sweets- and bread-making skills and foist the results off on friends and family for review (and to avoid eating it all myself).
