I'm a 25-year-old nursing student that loves trail running and looooves all things having to do with biology and baking! Although I currently live in a small suburban apartment, growing up in the country has greatly influenced my love of the outdoors, gardening, and making food the old fashion way with a little bit of elbow grease. I admit that while I do not always eat the healthiest foods thanks to school and work, I can't go very long without the urge to whip out the Kitchenaid and go to town on making awesome food the right way...from scratch!
My favorite things to cook
A good spaghetti sauce and any baking recipe that seems horrendously daunting
My favorite family cooking traditions
Picking apples in the backyard and helping Mom make applesauce...with the skins on! Applesauce MUST be pink!
My cooking triumphs
I have a love/hate relationship with pie crust...we have shared both triumphant and tragic memories together, one of which includes a fork being thrown and getting stuck into the linoleum floor.
