Before I got married in June, 2006, I hadn't cooked, practically at all. Cooking was for my mother and my sister, while I played on the computer. Well, when thrown out into the 'real world', I was forced to feed myself and my new husband... and I discovered I love cooking! I don't know if I'm any good at it yet, but I treat it as a science experiment, and forge ahead, failures and all.
In the meantime, we eat well.
Oh, and did I mention I really like taking pictures of things too?
