I started cooking professionally when I got my first job at 16 in a locally owned Italian Restaurant. I started cooking for my family using many of the recipes I used at work. As I got older I learned how to tweak it into my own. When I was 20 years old I got a job at a Bakery and learned how to make many pastries and fresh breads.
My favorite things to cook
I like making Stir fry's and Asian food at home. It's healthier and tastes a lot better. I love to bake cookies to quick breads, fresh rolls or cakes. And especially cheesecakes, during the holiday's I am always expected to bring one along.
My cooking triumphs
For my one nieces 3rd birthday I made her a Bunny cake. She was so excited when she saw it. Her eyes just lit up and screamed "It's a bunny, I love bunnies".
My cooking tragedies
I was making a double recipe cake which was going to be decorated like the game board Candy Land for my husbands birthday party. After putting the first layer of frosting on, I wanted to cool it down in the fridge. As I was putting it in the fridge it hit the side of the door and dropped on the floor. It was already too late to make a new one so I made a cookie pizza at like 2 in the morning, everyone still loved it and few new what happened to the Candy Land cake that night.
