Hello World! My name is Jamie! But a lot of peeps think I am Crazy! So some call me Crazy Jamie! The name originally came from my mother in law, she nick named me crazy nena, which means crazy woman in Spanish and well I always loved the name and well its stuck and I feel it fits me quite well. So I went with it! My friend Stacey’s kids also call me Crazy Jamie. Not Jamie, but Crrrrazy Jamie! Why be just Jamie, when I can be CRAZY JAMIE! So welcome to my world! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Food! I probably think about food more than a man thinks about sex. Well maybe not…But I think about it a LOT! I am always looking for recipes and inspirations and things I want to cook! I collect recipes and I LOVE Pinterest! Greatest place to get recipes! That’s where I get all mine! I am 35 years young and have been married to my Puerto Rican Hubby Normando Luis. Going on 5 years this year! We got hitched on 8-8-08. It’s just the two of us and always will be. I don’t want kids and yes he is ok with that! I like it just the two of us having fun, sipping wine, cooking, walking around naked and being goofy and on the go. It’s how we roll, and I LOVE our life! Why be like everyone else! I LOVE to be different! I have always been the odd one out, or stood out, or stood alone and always the loud girl. I am me 100% me all the time! Cussing, goofy, tons of energy, picture taking, pink hairs, crazy, outgoing chic! Some don’t like it, but that’s ok, not everyone can like someone so awesome! Did I mention I LOVE food, all kinds! My favorite food is Sushi, then Italian! I also LOVE learning how to make foods from my hubby’s homeland of Puerto Rico! I will travel there someday! I also LOVE Cajun/creole food! I think I was a Cajun in a past life! I also LOVE to make homemade pasta and my most favorite tomatoes are San Marzano tomatoes! How I show love to friends and family is by cooking for them! I put my heart and soul into my food and cooking! It’s my passion and you can see, hear and taste it! My favorite place to be in is my kitchen cooking! I love to hike and have lived in Colorado my whole life. I don’t think I could live anywhere there wasn’t mountains! I also LOVE the dry heat! I don’t handle humidity too well. Along with cooking and taking pictures and hanging out with my hubby, I also have a side salsa business I do as well as a cupcake business too. I love to stay busy! Why rest? I can’t sit still so I just keep a moving anyway I can! So this is me and my world and welcome to it!
