I'm a Licensed Massage Therapist. I love organic food, and I am trying to cook healthier meals for my boyfriend and I. I love to bake and cook, and I've been taking charge in the kitchen since I was 10 years old. I'm born and raised in the Mid-West, but lived in the South-East for a number of years, so my cooking reflects a little of there too.
My favorite things to cook
I adore all baking, especially muffins, pies, and cheesecakes...I'm learning to love Puerto Rican/Latin food,as my husband is from Puerto Rico, and I recently fell in love with plantains (they're so versatile!!).
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family has always made comfort foods: pastas, and heavy, hearty, filling meals and sweets. My mom is well-known for her homemade pancakes, apple crisp, sour cream sugar cookies. My grandma has her beloved chili, egg-salad, strawberry layer dessert, and buttery rolls.
