the day i got my kitchen aid mixer was the greatest day of my life. i named her "black beauty" and i think we will be happy together for a long time to come.
My favorite things to cook
anything sweet. i keep my cupboards constantly stocked with the essential ingredients for my baking creations. i am always the one to come through with a cookies, a cake, cupcakes, etc. on someone's birthday.
My favorite family cooking traditions
i was raised in a healthy household, so my mom taught me everything i know about chicken and vegetables, but my sweet tooth came from growing up on her triple chocolate brownies and criss-cross peanut butter cookies. my mom also has a massive collection of recipes that date back to my great-grandmother, including my favorite family recipe, cherry crunch.
My cooking triumphs
brownie cookies, pecan pie, pumpkin spice cookies, berry cobbler, pecan supreme cookies
My cooking tragedies
the only tragedy is the amount of sweets that i eat! needless to say, i am quite the gym rat...
