About this Cook
I'm back in school for culinary arts (both pastry and cooking) and absolutely love it.
My favorite things to cook
The thing I'm most known for cooking is baked goods but I love experimenting with all sorts of desserts. What I love to cook most is soup, I love coming up with different soup ideas but I never write them down so I rarely make the same thing twice.
My favorite family cooking traditions
At christmas my family always made their own homemade noodles for turkey & noodles. Holiday cookies are also a big thing and have now become my own tradition (experimenting with new cookie recipes and making up my own)
My cooking triumphs
My first wedding cake done for a friend at 22yrs old (3 tiered heartshaped carrotcake). My college acceptance for culinary arts:pastry. Having made my own wedding cake (keylime cream filling and cheesecake cream frosting).
My cooking tragedies
shrimp with mustard sauce.. very burned hard boiled eggs at 10yrs old. The nutmeg cheesecake that was supposed to be a sweetpotato cheesecake, oops.

Crazy Cake
This cake is great as is but if you decide to make it with Gluten Free Flour it comes out even better tasting, like a flourless cake so then its Egg Free, Dairy Free, and gluten free but tastes amazing.

Dried Beef Cheese Ball
It had good flavor but its very important to use the right products. First, onion salt is absolutely horrible but when switched to onion powder its fine. Also its very important to have good dried beef, if your getting the salty kind in the jar or plastic pkg then it will be a salty dish, I'd suggest trying to locate a good brand or even better, made from a smokehouse or deli.
