Many thanks to Veena of Vina’s Delicious Recipes! and Fae of Fae’s Twist and Tango for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award! I am truly honored. It is so great to learn from and share cooking with such awesome people!
7 Random Things About Me!
- I love science! I really enjoy studying it and have a Master of Science degree in Biochemistry.
- I have the cutest dog in the world, “Pipi” a Papillon-mix. She said so.
- I have measured how loud I can scream. In high school, we had a book of records (like our own Guinness book) and set the bar at 115 decibels, 14 dB shy from the world record. Eeeek! I guess it is within the normal human range though. lol
- If there was one sport that I would ever train for to be in the Olympics, it would be discus throwing. I loved it in school!
- I was born with an already healed cleft palate–I have a small scar where it would have been. (Researchers are trying to untangle the genetics behind cleft palate–pretty interesting…well..at least to me.)
- I completed a round of P90X.
- When we were little, my mom would often dress my little sister and I in matching outfits even though we are four years apart . Maybe it is because my mom missed the times when she dressed the same as her identical twin, my aunt. 🙂
