I am a Nutrition and Foods student at CSUS. I love to cook and bake for other people the most. I am engaged and will be married in June. I have 2 dogs, and work as a nanny.
My favorite things to cook
Anything tasty! I very much enjoy making little things from scratch like mayonnaise or salsa that just make a normal chicken salad or taco so much better. I enjoy cooking different things all of the time, and trying to make some things a little bit more healthy without ruining the taste. People really enjoy my Thyme Roasted Chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up cooking in the kitchen with my Mom all of the time. Now that I am an adult I always get to bring the pies to Thanksgiving, the mashed potatoes to Christmas, and the dessert at Easter. People love my cooking, and its nice to be part of the people that contribute to the dinner table.
My cooking triumphs
I have made several successful pumpkin pies from a real pumpkin which always seems to impress people. I can also make a beautiful quiche, to die for guacamole, heart warming tomato soup, warm bread, and those good ole southern biscuits everyone loves.
My cooking tragedies
Luckily, I don't have too many. But one time I made stuffed tomatoes without cooking the rice first (can you say crunchy!) and at one point in time I didn't own a timer so I have burnt more then my fair chair of pie crusts and cookies.
