I have come to cake baking in the last 2 years. I have been baking since I was about 10 years old. I have three daughters with whom I share my love for cooking, baking and grilling.
My favorite things to cook
I like Italian food. Other than that I can make almost anything, but usually like to make things my small kids will eat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make about 200,000 calories worth of desserts from Halloween to New Year's Eve. I give them out as gifts, and bring them to all events I am invited to.
My cooking triumphs
I made a roasted tomato and roasted bell pepper soup with a Serrano cream, and I had 23 people over for dinner and every single person absolutely loved it. It took about 5 hours to make, and I used every single pot, pan, and utensil in my kitchen.
My cooking tragedies
I once made a tofu cheesecake that even my dog would not eat. That was like 1989.
