About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love french cuisine. Sauces and soups galore! I like to bake also, but I like to find easy recipes that taste like I spent hours on it. Who doesnt?!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always loved Thanksgiving. I love to cook a traditional turkey, just like I remember eating as a kid.
My cooking triumphs
I went to culinary school and loved it. I work in a restaurant currently, but when the kids get bigger, I would like to get into catering.
My cooking tragedies
I once cooked an apple pie from scratch... apples from my sister's tree. I put a crumb topping on it at the end and turned on the broiler... My brother- in- law will never let me live down how burnt it became after we forgot about it.

Pastry Cream
LOVE this recipe. Comes out perfect everytime! My one tip- dont leave it alone on the stove, even for a second. Also, dont stop whisking until its finished!

Lemon Curd
This is the best lemon curd! Tastes fresh and tangy. When I want a more toned down flavor, I will make a batch of pastry cream (exact name on all recipes) and mix the 2. Its amazing!
