I recently acquired a box full of piping tips from when my grandfather was a baker in the Navy (which I was unaware of). My grandfather died before I was born, so I never met him & knew very little about him. It makes me smile to think that we have a love of baking in common and that I am putting his piping tips to good use.
Also about me.. I am 24, live in California, and have a chihuahua/pug mix that I absolutely adore. I am a social worker by career but a baker by heart.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, cupcakes, cakes, bars, pies! Anything sweet :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family was big on pasta dishes and I am still trying to get my meals to come out as delicious as my dad's.
My cooking triumphs
Most recently: Strawberry cupcakes w/strawberry frosting. Delicious!
My cooking tragedies
I had a horrible experience with the White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake from this site. Let's just say I'm never again attempting a cheesecake in my lifetime.
