I'm a graphic designer and letterpress printer. To relax, I do yoga or bake!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake: cookies, breads and pies. When I cook, it's usually vegetarian.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I remember my mother always baking. Everyday, there were home-made cookies in my lunch box and during the holidays there were plenty of pies. This is probably why I'm drawn to baking these myself as an adult.
My cooking triumphs
Getting my first recipe published here on AllRecipes.com! It's an Amish Friendship Banana Nut Bread adapted from a traditional banana nut recipe of my Mom's.
My cooking tragedies
There have been several, but the worst was frosting a cake on a very hot day. Let's just say, I've learned to control my temper since then. Frosting is NOT fun to clean off the ceiling!
