About this Cook
My name is Melissa. I gradated college in 2006 and moved to Florida to start my life with my (now) husband. I absolutely love to bake especially when I'm stressed or in my down time, and many say I make the best desserts. Before I graduated college, I was a horrible cook and couldn't make much of any meal unless it came out of a box or bag. Since then, I've learned from my husband, friends, family, and trial and error from recipes and pride myself on making great meals that make the soul smile.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake desserts and breads. I am learning to love cooking seafood, soups, pasta, casseroles, and other various meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Though my mom hates baking, she would always have my sister and I help her make desserts when we were younger. My dad and I also started a tradition about 15 years ago in making candies (peanut brittle, glass candy, buckeyes, fudge) for friends and family at Christmas time.
My cooking triumphs
I am a mean baker. I also make the best meatloaf my husband and friends have ever had, and I recently learned I do a stand up job of making a Thanksgiving dinner.
My cooking tragedies
I am horrible with improvising meals, especially when it comes to seasoning meats.
