It's Mollie, with an -ie!

Ok so I like to think of myself as a witty girl and a decent writer but after reading all the blog posts and intros thus far I have to admit I feel a bit nervous measuring up! Ya'll are good! That said I hope to at least not bore you! Like all of us here I too love food and cooking- I dream about food and reminisce of old times via food- I love reading recipes, better yet I love trying them and more usually then not I like CHANGING recipes to suit my own tastes! I am one of those cooks who actually hates cooking inside the lines and I would say the only time I truly follow a recipe 100% is with baked goods because you stand to make a royal mess there if you're not precise!

I have been cooking meals for my family probably since I was about 10 years old and amazingly enough 21 years later (sh*t I'm old!) I still not only love cooking but am always learning about new tastes and techniques along the way. My ultimate dream one day is to attend culinary school for the pure pleasure of it. In the meantime I enjoy learning from others who share the same passion or my bff's on the food network, travel channel, martha, take home chef etc.

I love pretty much all fresh fruit and veggies, olives, cheese, mediterranean food, seafood, steak, lamb, pasta, italian and mexican, cilantro, lime..oh seriously I could go on for hours! One final note- I also love wine- particularly reds, and my latest food adventures involve making good food and wine matchups!

I love mediterrean food, but don't have many recipes. I'm looking forward to what you've got up your sleeve!

On the wine/food matchups, I hate that there's no really good web site that helps. I like how Rachael Ray's magazine includes wine ideas for recipes, but there's no one source that I would say is all encompassing.
