I live in Wisconsin in the Madison area and work at the American Family Insurance Headquarters as a Payroll Coordinator. I am also currently attending school to recieve my Associate in the Science of Business.
My favorite things to cook
I am 24 year old who loves to bake and really loves to eat baked goods! Both of my grandmothers are really great cooks and I started to adventure into baking when I was in grade school.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas my family has me make Cranberry Pudding as our Christmas dessert. Eventhough other family members know how to make the dessert, it is tradition for me to make it. I always hear, "So when are you making the Cranberry Pudding?"
My cooking triumphs
I recently made my little sisters 18th birthday cake. It was my first time using a rolled fondant (got the recipe here) and it turned out mod looking. Just what I was going for! She wanted a swirl cake, but I decided to twist it around and made a checker board layer cake instead. We loved it!
My cooking tragedies
I grew up with a gas stove and oven. When I moved into my apartment in Wisconsin I had an electric range. I burned many things trying to get used to the new heating elements. I definately prefer gas ranges!!
