I'm definitely more city mouse than country mouse, I enjoy the outdoors and have been known to hike or camp here and there (though usually I'd rather be the one to meet you back at the camp or cabin with hot chocolate and an awesome meal).
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 (one of the few things about 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).
