During my early childhood, I desperately wanted an Easy Bake Oven. Since I never got one, at the age of 8, I started baking, which ultimately led to a decades-long love affair with cooking for countless friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts are my forte but I am now focusing on perfecting my grilling skills. Cedar-planked grilling of meats and fish is one of my new-found and now preferred methods of cooking.
My cooking tragedies
My very first cake was a disaster! I was 8 years old and tried to make a cake from scratch using the recipe on the flour bag. The cake was undercooked and gooey and I mistakenly used ice cream topping thinking it was the same as cake frosting! Thankfully the experience did not ruin my desire to bake!!
