Born and raised in Wisconsin, but currently living in Indianapolis. I travel a lot for work, so when I'm home I like to bake tasty treats to take into the office and healthy dinners to balance out the not-so-healthy things I eat when I'm traveling.
My favorite things to cook
Baking cookies and bars are my favorite. Any dessert or breakfast pastry really. I also like to try quick and healthy seafood, chicken and pasta dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom has taught me that presentation is just as important as taste. So I have plenty of cute baskets, platters and napkins around.
My cooking triumphs
When I made popovers! I love popovers, but they still don't turn out 100% of the time.
My cooking tragedies
When I tried making petit fours for Valentine's Day. Ugh. Next time I'll try to stick to one cake, filling and frosting flavor.
