Originating from the Southeast and now living in Northern California. Living here has opened my eyes to so many incredible culinary flavors and options.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking and always have since a child. I think it all started when I was 8 and a neighbor showed me how to make carrot cake from scratch, I was hooked then and there.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being a born and bred southerner I enjoy comfort food, now that I am a Northern Californian I have learned to prepare items that satisfy the carb lover AND are good for me. Baking is a big part of my up bringing as well, creamy cakes, fruit and cream pies were a staple growing up. I still really enjoy making these for my friends and family.
My cooking triumphs
I have gotten comfortable enough with food preparation that I now experiment and create my own recipes.
My cooking tragedies
That not so right Puerto Rican Rum Wedding Cake I found online...if you know the TRUE recipe, please let me know!
