About this Cook
I am a professional ballet dancer who loves to mess around in the kitchen. My love of cooking and baking has been inspired by my mom and older sister, as well as being another outlet for my creativity.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make desserts!!! Despite all the pretenses about dancers not eating; I love to make cakes, cookies, trifles and more! I also like making breads and muffins.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays are always so special. We have several signature dishes that we always make, but we try to incorporate new additions every year. Some have been better than others, but hey...we all have a few flops every once in a while!
My cooking triumphs
My Berry Trifle has been a hit wherever I take it. I have yet to bring home a bowl that hasn't been practically licked clean! My aunt's Brownie Trifle is also a crowd pleaser. My biggest triumph however, is probably the six layer Strawberry Coconut Cake I made for my sister for her birthday.
My cooking tragedies
I once tried making stuffed acorn squash for Thanksgiving dinner. It was a complete disaster, they tasted horrible! Also, my Dad would have to say that my attempts at making crabcakes are pretty bad as well.
