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.
