Since sadly camp is over and I’m back in the world of instant gratification via ever-present technology (talk about culture shock), I thought that I ought to write a blog about my culinary experiences at camp. Now, when most people here the phrase “camp food” nearly everyone thinks of stuff… MORE

The Super Bowl is over. Madonna sang her last, but unfortunately not least, song. Doritos commercial were too good to have been so short. The New York Post disappointed me with a boring headline and Tom Brady’s “Hail Mary” failed to connect. The food has all been eaten. (Well, everything but… MORE

About Me
My mother and father started teaching me how to cook as a young girl. I've always loved to cook, but baking is my true favorite. I love making cookies, cakes, and cupcakes.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE to bake! I could bake, just bake, for hours on end. Which I have done. And it is awesome.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I guess my family has a few traditions. Like that I make the chocolate cookies. Or that Christmas cookies made without Great-Grandma's cookie gun aren't as good to me.
My cooking triumphs
Probably, no suprise here, chocolate chip cookies and guacamole.
My cooking tragedies
Salt. I either put too much, or not enough. And pepper. Same problem.
