I'm messy.

So here it is folks. Dani starting a food blog. People have requested it. And I like to make the people happy.

What will this be? I'm not quite sure. It shall evolve.
I kind of feel like this first post will be about how I got to where I am now...

A 23 year old actor in Chicago workin' as a personal chef to pay my bills.I have lots of acting training, but no culinary training. Self taught baby.

Here is a blueprint of my life thus far:

*I grew up in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. http://www.gatlinburg.com/

*Discovered I wanted to be an actor at Stagedoor Manor. http://www.stagedoormanor.com/

*Escaped Tennessee in high school to attend The North Carolina School of the Arts. http://www.ncarts.edu/

*They helped me get into college. http://harttweb.hartford.edu/

*During my summers I teach a class called 'Personal Theatre' at the Center for Creative Youth. http://www.crec.org/magnetschools/schools/ccy/

*And I learned everything I know about food from...http://www.foodnetwork.com/

That's me in 6 links. Get me? Got me? Good.

I'll leave you with a food nibble--this week I discoverd avocados freeze very well.

And today I made for my boss ladies:
~Grapefruit and mint popsicles--weird I know, but they had an excess of grapefruits!3 boxes!

~Seafood Tomato Orange Bisque--so yummy.

~Curried Lentils with Roasted Veggies--they can't get enough of this stuff. I make it twice a week.

For Brit and I:
~Spicy Chicken Fajitas with Gingered Black Beans and Brown Rice--Brit called from the grocery store and said "I think I want to make fajitas tonight!", I said "Awesome make them!" But she got home and I ended up making them...and so it goes. :)

I'll start posting pictures and recipes, duh.
