I've been baking since middle school, and I've recently (a year or two ago) started getting into main dishes instead of just desserts. I love to get creative with my food- The satisfaction of having a fancy looking, delicious dish is something I really enjoy.
I'm a nanny, so I've started learning more about how to entice kids with certain foods. (Both boys are very picky eaters.)
Non-cooking related info- I'm a juggalette of about a year and half, and I'll be attending my first GOTJ this August. Whoop whoop!
I love to write, read, listen to music, and go walking. I'm a big time nature enthusiast, and a very spiritual sort. (Not religious, but spiritual.) I love to learn, and I'm usually very friendly.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, pasta, breakfast
My favorite family cooking traditions
Deer! I love venison. My dad makes some hella good deviled eggs too.
My cooking triumphs
The yams I made on Thanksgiving turned out amazing, especially considering I'd never made them before, or even seen anyone else make them.
I also made the most delicious and pretty mudslide... Added extra chocolate drink mix to the pre-mixed mudslide, in a crystal glass, topped with whipped cream and sprinkled very lightly with cinnamon. Delicious!
My cooking tragedies
I've messed up quite a few recipes.. Main issues have been forgetting to oil pans, having meringue deflate on me, etc.
