I am a 21-year-old college student majoring in Food Science. I have only recently gotten into cooking, and much of the way I learned was through trial and error in teaching myself. As a ballet dancer who LOVES food, yet has always been concerned with healthy eating, I look to make recipes that are healthy and yet still delicious and enjoyable. I use every attempt as a learning experience as well to learn more about the science involved in creating dishes.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that will bring a smile to someone's face!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking cookies on Saturdays during football season.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook is a triumph in and of itself for me. I taught myself nearly everything I know.
My cooking tragedies
In my first attempt at making gingerbread men, a few met a sad fate as I dropped them on the floor right out of the oven...those pans get pretty darn hot when you're trying to find a spot for them on the counter!
