Bienvenido! My name is Kaley, a college student studying..a range of topics. I've interests in psychology, anthropology- linguistics particularly- food and fitness, travel, and animals. My birth year is 1992 so I like to think that I've still some time to explore my options. Dietitian? Spanish teacher?
I originally came upon Allrecipes for a school assignment in Home Ec eighth grade, in which we were to make a recipe in front of the class (I ended up making Chewy Granola Bars). Since then this site has gone through a lot with me; from getting over a four-year siege of anorexia, to learn how to zest a lemon, to properly pronouncing 'ganache'. Coming from a family that goes to fast food for at least a meal a day and never bothers to read a food label, this site has been a great inspiration.
My favorite things to cook
I have a maaajor sweet tooth. It's almost shameful. I like making cute postres, healthy snacks, and nutritious meals that win over the picky, uber boring family.
My cooking triumphs
I'm known in my family as the baker. and am quite proud of it. Come to me, I will make your tummy happy!
My cooking tragedies
Going too far in modifying a dish to be healthy where no one will eat it and I'm left to either stomach it down or toss it.
