I am a mom to two beautiful kids and I am a professional cake decorator. I adore baking, working with chocolate and other sugar art.
My favorite things to cook
Sweets, anything in the crockpot, baked goods
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year at Christmas, my grandmother would make us her famous cheese straws. My grandfather made the best pralines for any special occasion. They have both passed away and I have now taken over the cheese straw and praline traditions. I also adore baking my children's birthday cakes with them which is a tradition I started with each of their first birthdays.
My cooking triumphs
Fudge, roux(gravy), scrumptious cakes
My cooking tragedies
Once I was making a pasta dish that called for 1 tsp dried oregano. Well, I was in a hurry and instead of the 1 teaspoon of oregano I used 1 tablespoon. It was so strong that we couldn't even eat it!
