i am a writer who happens to be good at baking.
My favorite things to cook
i love baking breads, making desserts, as well as making any pasta dish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
In my family, pasta is always present. No matter that the food theme of any particular party is say, Filipino, or Chinese. There's always spaghetti with meatballs, or classic carbonara, or spinach lasagne.
My cooking triumphs
I've made and decorated five (three-tiered) wedding cakes all on my own in one summer when the only previous experience I've had with wedding cakes was a stacked styrofoam model in cooking school wherein I worked with two other people.
My cooking tragedies
two years ago, i decided to try making an angel food cake without knowing anything at all about whipping egg whites. needless to say, my angel food cake collapsed.
