I'm the daughter of a baker, so baking has always been special to me. I LOVE making cookies. I'm still working on my cook skills, I like to make vegetarian and healthy meals. I'm a US citizen but I'm currently living in Buenos Aires. I work for a software company and also have a travel website (Travelated.com).
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, Mexican, middle eastern, vegetarian.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and I have All Day Cookie Weekend every Christmas. We spend 2 long days baking 6 varieties of cookies, over 1000 in total, then we give them all away.
My cooking triumphs
I recreated Cookie Day in my tiny apartment in Buenos Aires. I made 300 cookies, mixed by hand. I have no dishwasher and no temp control on my oven- they all turned out great!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I attempted to bake in college, without all my moms ingredients and cooking utensils on hand, I was so frustrated. The oven and pans were all wrong and my baking soda was expired. My chocolate chip cookies turned out tasty but flat. I was so embarrassed I almost tossed them but college kids will eat anything so I gave them to some hungry boys.
