I have my eyes on the cooking world. My parents have inspired me to be creative with food and to love eating, which is, indeed, my favorite part of life. Baking is my game, and I love making people happy with what I create.
My favorite things to cook
dried cherry scones, baked rigatoni with bechamel sauce with fontina cheese, tomato sauce with red wine
My favorite family cooking traditions
gruyere fondue on Christmas Eve, popovers
My cooking triumphs
My mixed berry and apple pies beat out my grandma's pies this Thanksgiving (both were devoured first), thanks to my mom's recipe for pie crust and my love for and devotion to fruit pie.
My cooking tragedies
7 years old, making up recipes with best friend, "blueberry bread", no baking powder.
