    Very proud of myself!
    As many of you may or may not know, before I became an affiliate manager, I was a professional chef.
    I kept my hand in the profession by writing a monthly food column and occasionally freelancing articles on food and recipes, but gave all that up about a year ago. It was just too much with everything else going on.
    However, as with anything you love passionately, I really missed sharing my love of food and favorite recipes, so I applied for and am now (drumroll please)...
    The Charlottesville Cooking Examiner!

    Way to go Dyan. Glad to know you are chasing your passions. Seems like there are quite a few foodies on ABW, myself included: If You Can Stomach It (not an affiliate link)

    I look forward to reading your articles.

    You gave up being a professional chef to become an affiliate manager?

    I love to cook, and if there was one thing I would love to be, it is a professional chef.

    Congratulations on your new venture

    Congrats Dyan!! Cooking is my passion also. I have often thought about going to culinary school but never can seem to make the committment. Probably because I know I would never work in the field. It is hard work.

    Best of luck!!
