I love to cook and bake! My dream would be to one day combine my two loves of books and food and own my own coffee shop/book store of the non-Barnes and Knoble variety... something intimate, personal and fun
My favorite things to cook
Cookies/Cakes, Italian and Mexican
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just being together in the kitchen and I love to sit down to a homemade dinner and just talk about our days... food helps bring people together.
My cooking triumphs
A homemade Chocolate bundt cake with a center that was filled with beautifully decorated chocolate covered strawberries. It wasn't really all that difficult but it looked very impressive... which as any cook knows is the true definition of culinary success. That and my lasagna... I make a wicked Lasagna.
My cooking tragedies
I am very impatient which is without a doubt my biggest flaw in the kitchen... I tried to ice a cake before it was ready which obviously had a horrible out come, made even worse by the fact I was supposed to take it to a family get together!!!
