Music has always been a huge part of my life. I grew up in the L.A. area listening to a lot of loud, crazy punk music and sneaking out to go to shows. As a teenager I listened to music while I did EVERYTHING; showered, got dressed, walked to school, sat on the bus ... That's not really the case anymore. I noticed today that the only time I really get the chance to listen to music is either a.) When reviewing an album or b.) Cooking. Thankfully, my little home office is next to the kitchen and before I get started in the kitchen, I make a huge playlist of my favorite loud, fast music. Does anyone else listen to music while they cook? And if so, please don't confess to classical. The kitchen's too intense for that!
