A Barenaked Chef is…me! I love getting the magazines with the Top 10, Best of the City, Don’t Miss and Favorites list. I watch all of the TV shows that tell me where to vacation and what to eat. I love recommendations and so I am passing them on to you. I will try to give you my original sources when at all possible!
So, the name…am I a freak? Not on your life. I love the Barenaked Ladies and Jamie Oliver (who used to be called “The Naked Chef) so, you know…I just combined the two. Nothing freaky about that, right. Please, don’t send me comments about cooking bacon in the buff, that joke has been played out. So…the real me:
I went to college at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Even though I admit I’m not a huge fan of sports, I always root for the Tide! My degree is in Human Development and my concentration is on Child Development.
I spend a lot of time online. I am very active on several sites, but Facebook is a favorite. I also write reviews on a site called Epinions. These are mostly products, but some things are personal.
I also dearly love to cook. I’ve actually had quite a few recipes published in Taste of Home, Simple and Delicious, and Healthy Cooking. I post all of my recipes online at Recipezaar. Have a look at them!
One more important thing I’d like you to know about me is that I support the March of Dimes. Everyone can benefit from the great things this organization does for babies, but never was it so evident to me personally until I had my own premature baby in 2002. Although she had a rough start at 3 months early and 2 pounds, she is a strong healthy first grader today. If you are looking for a charity support, we fully stand behind this one!
