I am a mother of two. I have a 2 yr old son and mydaughter was born Dec 2008. I love to bake for people and to give them something sweet, indulgent and pretty. Sometimes I wish brownies and molten chocolate cakes really could make everyones problems go away... I love to embrace the southern hospitality I was raised with (in Mississippi) and let food warm peoples hearts and make them feel at home. I'm not a top chef but I loovvee to cook and if I can brighten anyone's day with something warm and gooey, I think I'd feel pretty accomplished :)
My favorite things to cook
I love LOVE to cook desserts, esp. cheesecakes and cakes. I love decorating cakes and making truffles nice and pretty.
My cooking triumphs
Homemade chicken noodle soup, white chocolate raspberry cheesecake, truffles, biscotti and strawberry cake.
My cooking tragedies
Well... if you must know.. the first time I made homemade pizza i wanted a thick crust and so i followed the recipe and added the sauce and cheese to my homemade dough... and ended up with a black cheese topping and gooey crusts! I know now to cook the pizza in a HOT oven, bake the crusts 10min and then add the topping, and using a pizza stone really makes it great!
