About this Cook
My dad taught me how to cook when I was very young as he loved to cook & I would hang out in the kitchen with him. I've since inherited my dad's personal cookbook as well as my great-grandma's and my grandma's recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Nothing specific--I love to feed my friends & family; right now I'm on a candy-making spree! My family loves my apple & pumpkin pies & I make sure there's always some kind of dessert on hand when they visit.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma makes cut-out Christmas cookies every year that us grand-kids still decorate and my other grandma decorated cakes for many years at Baskin Robbins. Desserts definitely are a theme in my family!
My cooking triumphs
My first catering gig was for 25 people, Moroccan-themed, which I had never cooked before. Turned out AWESOME!!!

Pumpkin Cookies IV
I made these cookies for a friend who cannot have gluten, soy, dairy OR nuts so I substituted 1/2 cup of brown rice flour for the 1/2 of ground walnuts. I was so delighted with how these turned out, I ate two of them before I managed to package them up for delivery to my friend!
