I love living in SoCal, where I get a chance to try all different types of cuisines. It's fun trying something new at a restaurant and recreating it at home where I can play with the recipe.
My favorite things to cook
Anything sweet! I especially love to bake cookies and pies, and have recently been experimenting with my ice cream maker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My sister and I have been vegetarian since we were very small, so I love to surprise the meat-eaters I know with a good vegetarian meal.
