I am 21 year old student at the University of Kansas School of Medicine. I love to cook for my fiance and his family. I love baking and preparing entirely too many dishes for parties and events, desserts and appetizers are my favorite.
My favorite things to cook
I absolutely love to bake! Baking is how I got my start in the kitchen. When I was a little girl I would bake cakes and cookies with my great grandmother, so being in the kitchen is truly special to me! I love to bake cakes, pies, brownies, cookies, tarts, cheesecakes...just everything.
I love cooking pasta dishes, trying recipes in the slow cooker, and any dish that involves chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas I get together with the women in my family and we cook cookies, breads, fudge, and all sorts of other yummy treats. This last Christmas was so special because my very little cousin came over and helped me. I love making memories with family in the kitchen. I am known as the baker in the family and any event we have I am definitely in charge of desserts.
My cooking triumphs
This past Thanksgiving I cooked the entire meal. I cooked the turkey, creamy baked corn, pumpkin souffle,mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, rolls, stuffing, pecan pie, apple pie. I have never seen the oven and stove top so full of food!! It all turned out absolutely delicious!
My cooking tragedies
Probably the first time I made an alfredo sauce, it turned out gritty for some reason.
