I went to the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, and I received from them a Certificate in Baking and Pastry Arts. I'm now a stay at home mom who loves to cook for her family. I'm always on the look out for good new recipes. :)
My favorite things to cook
Right now, Thai, Indian, stir fry, and anything made with local produce from our local farmers market. EAT and BUY LOCAL!!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making christmas cookies together, and having big family holiday meals. Also, making rhubarb bread with my grandma in the summer. And when my mom and sister come over and we make dinner together.
My cooking triumphs
Making puff pastry dough at home(had never made it before), and it turned out beautifully! Everything I made in my Baking and Pastry program in culinary school. Also, my Masaman Curry, and my Tom Ka Gai soup.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made real Thai green curry with the little thai eggplants in it, it was awful.
