I enjoy food, geeks, adventure, the Internet, whiskey, a well-made Old Fashioned, learning something new every day, helping others, changing the world, general do-goodery and inappropriately frequent LOLing. I laugh, a lot, some people think it's a problem, but I'm usually too busy laughing to worry much about them.
I'm a cook & I work in pastry, which is nice because I work days, not so nice because those days start very early in the morning. I also work a lot, but I love what I do, & not a lot of people can say that, so that's pretty awesome
I spent a good part of the last few years traveling, and having non conventional, location independent adventures, which I will happily tell you all about if you ask.
Now I'm back in Philly & going on one exciting food adventure at a time. I talk about food and other things I love, like my community... a lot.
- The Internet.
- Making a plan and getting shit done.
- Helping people around me be happy, whole and as awesome as possible.
- Reverse engineering everything from foods to websites--figuring out how to make things better by taking them apart and (usually) putting them back together.
- Being "ridiculous" at every opportunity (but all in good fun)
I also have a cookbook collection that is bordering on colossal.
I am a nerd girl at heart, so in no particular order (and I 'm sure I'm missing a few) Dr Who, Firefly, Boardwalk Empire, Parks & Rec, Sherlock, Sons of Anarchy, Game of Thrones, Mind of a Chef, Cooked, The Great British Baking Show (which is actually sort of amazingly calming)... I'm sure there are others, and we can totally nerd out about the medium.
Growing up, I wasn't allowed to listen to music. Which is to say, I am fairly willing to listen to absolutely anything, and love learning what other people like. I can say with a fair amount of certainty that I don't care for heavy metal, but maybe that just means I haven't met someone with enough passion for it yet.
I'm passionate about food, and I love how it brings people together. I make up most of my recipes as I go along, and lately I've been learning all about bread!
- The Internet.
- Good food.
- Dirt under my feet / Fresh air in my lungs.
- A camera.
- Other humans, but only the good ones.
Cardio. Cardio. Cardio.
Example: I once threw my back out laughing.
You don't take things, especially life, too seriously.
You have a great sense of humor and/or adventure.
