Thread: Introduce yourself!

  1. #1

    Introduce yourself!

    In the interest of getting to know our new members, I thought we might introduce ourselves. I realize that a lot of people are having trouble logging on, or staying logged on (or struggling with the search default - hint hint hint). Perhaps we can keep this bumped for a while so that as the Cottage Living folks wander over they will be able to see this.

    I'll start:

    Name: Debie
    Location: West Michigan
    Subscriber Cooking Light, but I bought Cottage Living almost every month.

    Favorite Food: Risotto
    Favorite Color: Red
    Hobbies: skiing, walking, cooking

    CLBB name: testkitchen45, as in "a test kitchen for five people"--my family!
    Location: Texas. State Motto: We Wear Shorts and Parkas in the Same Week.
    Subscriber: CL and BA; occasionally buy CI; read Christian pubs also. I enjoy my DH's Forbes, Discover, and Popular Mechanics.
    Stats: 40s, teenage twin DSs + elem-school DD; married to the funniest guy on the planet since my mid-20s. Have been a SAHM since Day 1 (well, before that if you count bed rest). In prior life was a team leader in large corp (proj mgmt + people mgmt, writing, & editing); now it's home mgmt & kid mgmt. And cat mgmt--have a white-footed black cat who's surprisingly big for a female kitty.
    Favorite food: Cinnamon ice cream plus hot fudge sauce. Or a certain French restaurant's tournedos of beef with peppercorn cream sauce (a rare treat). Celery. (Just kidding. Thought the hi-cal options needed some balance.) Lots of dishes from my own kitchen, of course.
    Favorite color: Fire-engine red. Happy yellow = a close second. (I'm a sucker for the colors of Le Creuset--if all those pots came in only Dune and Slate, I'd own zero. )
    Hobbies: Long list! Cooking (duh), photography, scrapbooking, rubber-stamping of cards & other paper goodies, plus I'm a voracious reader and I sometimes help DH with his landscaping/gardening hobby (did that a lot more b4 the kiddos came along). Time permitting, or as DD grows older and I teach her the crafts I used to do, we can add sewing (clothing & home dec), needlepoint, quilting, crocheting, cross-stitch, embroidery, other paper crafts, lots more. Although I'm always on the go, "exercise" has not been on the list, except for some lessons in golf & racquetball; joined a gym with DH this weekend. (Ick. But I guess I'll learn to like it; he does.)
    Person I'd most like to have dinner with: My MIL if she were still living; she loved cooking, entertaining, & decorating. Also, I think it'd be fun to meet several CLBBers IRL.
    If you're afraid of butter, use cream. ~~ Julia Child

    As you cook, you enjoy omniscience about food that no amount of label reading can match. Having retaken control of the meal from the food scientists, you know exactly what is in it. (Unless you start w/cream of mushroom soup, in which case all bets are off.) To reclaim control over one's food, to take it back from industry & science, is no small thing; indeed, in our time, cooking from scratch qualifies as subversive. ~~ Michael Pollan
