I was born and raised in Gilbert, AZ. I love to bake especially but I also love to cook dinners etc. I play volleyball and I love swimming. Allrecipes.com is usually the first place I go to to find a recipe. When I'm not in the kitchen whipping up culinary masterpieces I'm playing with my dog, swimming, eating my culinary masterpieces, or just watching tv.
My favorite things to cook
I like making cheesecakes mainly because I love decorating them and I LOVE eating them! (the cooking process not so much). I like doing stuff with chicken and breads too. My all time favorite thing to do though is decorate various desserts perfectively!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad would always make honey baked ham for Christmas. And when I was little for Thanksgiving my mother would let me help make a cranberry-orange coleslaw type of thing. It was my favorite being so little and getting to use a hand grinder pretending I was Cinderella! As i got older though My favorite food was dad's steak that he prepped for hours and was eating in 2 minutes very good.
My cooking triumphs
Mainly anything with chicken, cookies, cheesecake, (any type of sweets really), grilling and decorating cakes etc.
My cooking tragedies
Made from scratch spaghetti sauce, my first ever cheesecake, chicken pot pies.
