Have loved baking since age of 11. Am 61 now and still bake some but not nearly as much, as kids are grown. Still enjoy it around Christmas time. Love to give Christmas gifts of baked breads and breakfast rolls.
My favorite things to cook
Breads, cakes, pies, fancy tortes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cheesecake, Christmas cookies frosted with almond-flavored frosting.
My cooking triumphs
Cut-out cakes, made to resemble cartoon characters and different objects, such as houses, cars, rocket ships, many others.
My cooking tragedies
Oven fire which set off smoke alarms and blew open the oven door.
