Born and raised in Miami, FL my whole life. And if there is one thing i can remember doing often while growing up, it was playing in the kitchen, just throwing things together and hoping it came out well :) most the time it did, and for those times it didn't... we laughed.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE BAKING! but i also love to cook just about anything, I'd love to learn to be better at grilling though.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and Birthdays, hands down. I love thanksgiving because I get to try out new things and have my entire family sit down with me and enjoy. And birthdays because it's the perfect time to get baking and show someone you care.
My cooking triumphs
I came up with an amazing alternative to tuna casserole, which contains salad shrip and lump crab meat with mozzerella cheese, it's awesome and my boyfriend loves it, which is a huge plus. He also says he absolutely looooooves my lump crab cakes, but I give the credit to the quality of the crab (thank god for wild oats)
My cooking tragedies
there was that time when i forgot about the brownies bakinging in the oven and it completely smoked up the house and they were so bad i had to throw out the baking pan with them :( oops!
