Marketing Manager turned SAHM of twin toddler boys, I find baking very therapeutic! Living abroad in Switzerland means that I have to be creative with certain ingredients (Brown sugar in Switzerland? No. France? No. Germany? No!). Thank goodness for international shops that ship...I never thought I'd be getting sugar in the mail!

My favorite family cooking traditions
Throw it all in one pot and see what you get.
My cooking triumphs
Replicating the Millionaire Squares I had while on vacation in Scotland. These are a traditional (3-layered) Scottish square and ridiculously good. I like that they are somewhat like Nanaimo Bars (a family tradition).
My cooking tragedies
At age 12, I was at a friend's house and the mother asked me to start the Kraft Dinner for ten of us to eat lunch. My mother NEVER allowed us to eat that kind of stuff so I had never made it before. I got confused and poured all five cheese packets in while the pasta was still in the water! The best part was probably when the mom freaked out and I innocently said "I don't know! My mom doesn't let us eat this kind of food!".
