About this Cook
I have been cooking since I was a young girl. I have always liked trying out new recipes. I love to eat new food and have a pretty varied palate. I like many different types of cuisine and am not afraid to make something new or challenging.
My favorite things to cook
Chocolate Chip Cookies- they are my specialty
My favorite family cooking traditions
Creating tea parties for the women of my famiy with my mom. I do all the cooking she does the decorating.
My cooking triumphs
Making a perfect Creme Brulee on my first try. Cooking Thanksgiving dinner for 8 all by myself. Everything turned out perfect!
My cooking tragedies
Making dinner for my husband that was so bad I had to throw all of the food away except for the bread course.
