About this Cook
I am 28 years old. I have been cooking/baking for nearly 20 years as I made my first pie from scratch at the age of 5 (so my mother says). I have a BS in Computer Science from MacMurray College in Jacksonville, IL, and a Master's in E-Commerce from DePaul University in Chicago. I am married to a wonderful, loving man who, along with his friends, love to taste my kitchen experiments. Cooking, as well as other creative pursuits, are extremely relaxing for me, and the reward of enjoying my creations cannot be put into words.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Italian food, but I also enjoy experimenting with whatever is in my pantry. Baking is probably my true passion, though...and working with chocolate brings a great deal of joy to my life...not to mention eating it! :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to cook and bake with my mother. We always have so much fun, and it is great bonding time. I hope to do the same with my children so they understand the value of good food.
My cooking triumphs
Oh gosh...I've had so many experiences that I consider triumphs! My first loaf of bread, the first time I made pasta...any first, really.
My cooking tragedies
Um...there are lots of those too! Probably more than you want to know about. :)
