Seven Spices

Miss Lynn got tagged by the Cooking Ninja and I got tagged by Lynn! So I have write down 7 random things about me. So here is some glances in my memory.

1- I am a journalism student, who wants more than ever to work for the specialized food magazines. I have way to many ideas and feel constricted by not being out in the field.

2- My dad was/is the cook of the family. As I often blog about my dad's bar-b-que, he doesn't just do brisket. No, he can do almost everything I ask for, which is great because the last thing I want to do on a visit is cook.

3- I've run 2 marathons, and I'm not going to stop. My knees don't hurt and running is one of my releases. I don't know what I would do without it.

4- When I go clothing shopping, I usually end up buying shoes. Why? Cause that's the size that is always constant. Sales are the only enemy.

5- I've had my food photography published in a local magazine. I'm working on making it. Why do you think I have a blog and a website?!

6- I like everything homemade, as much as possible. Duncan Hines and Betty Crocker have made tons of money off of there boxed and bagged mixes. But isn't it just as easy to make your own? I mean when you have a time limit they are great, but when you have time to kill, making a cake is so much fun.

7- I have set rice aflame in the microwave and I WAS following instructions. The bagged recipe said 35 minutes on high, halway through it there was smoke. Whoops!

Here's my tags!

Elle - She is so wonderful and always leaving lovely comments.
JenJen - I don't know why she doesn't own a bakery.
Kristen- A stay at home mom that makes me want to move in!
Desert Candy- A reason to move to the Middle East.
Bake and Shake- A woman who can create wonderful baked goods and make me salivate everytime!
Homesick Texan- She is wonderful, and brings Texas to the Big Apple.
Tamami- She is a lovely baker in London with her own table at the farmer's market. How cool is that?!

Thanks for the ag. I actually did an 8 things recently and it was a lot of fun, but I don't think I am interesting enough to come up with another 7 things about me. I'm a pretty boring chick! Here's the link:

Thanks Jerry, This is a cool meme. I hope that a smart food mag scoops you up to work for them. I also hope that your knees hold up, that you find great shoes in your size when you shop, and that you approach the microwave with caution :)
