My favorite things to cook
I've always been more of a baker. My specialties are cheesecakes, mousses, and fancy fondant cupcakes.
My slow cooker is my new best friend. I love making stews and casseroles that seem like they took way more effort than they actually do.
My favorite family cooking traditions
German desserts and cookies are my biggest family traditions. My great-grandmother also had a Sunday dinner tradition with a huge ham, shrimp cocktails and finished with elaborate cupcakes.
My cooking triumphs
Chocolate cupcakes filled with white chocolate mousse.
Dry NY cheesecake with oreo crust
My cooking tragedies
Ugh. The worst chicken parm ever. I still don't know what I did wrong but no one could eat it!
