an avocado says hello.

hello everybody, this looks like a fun forum! i have been a "hobby chef", as i call myself, since i was a teenager and i spend a lot of time thinking about food and what to cook! i think i enjoy cooking even more than i enjoy eating.

in the past couple of years i have become particularly interested in nutrition and the effects of foods on the body, but i also have a thing for comfort foods and i make a mean plate of fried chicken... everything in moderation, right?

hopefully i can learn some new things here and maybe i can contribute something as well. there seems to be quite a range of cooking styles represented here... myself, i tend towards healthier foods but i have an active interest in well made junk food as well. my favorite ingredient group by far is the plant group, i love veggies and often cook entire meals that are starch and meat free, but i love to grill or roast meats for special occasions. i am also a big believer in organics and sustainable farming, and just about 99% of the ingredients that i cook with fall into that catagory.

i look forward to sharing some food talk with all of you.

Anyone that likes avocados is OK in my book. They are my favorite, right up there with jalapenos. Welcome, to DC.
