Proud mom, formerly a professional baker. Now the very proud owner of my gram's recipe collection. She was always baking and I was always in the kitchen with her. For desert I always asked for one of everything (there were usually 3-4 to choose from).
My favorite things to cook
Baking of any sort, especially breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas & Thanksgiving aren't the same unless it includes my gram's famous cheeseball, and gram's wonderful hand-rolled hand-dipped chocolates.
