My name is Stephanie and I live in Indianapolis with my daughter Calista. I'm really into buying handmade and locally grown products, and the expanded horizons that go along with trying new things. I like comedy, philosophy, photography, reading, making lists, and of course, cooking!!
My favorite things to cook
I like making really healthy dishes that don't taste like diet food, and I also love making my own pizza from scratch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and brother are both in culinary school right now, so I guess cooking is in our blood. Our motto seems to be to keep it new and fresh - so we don't have any yearly or holiday food traditions. I'm okay with that.
My cooking triumphs
Making versions of my favorite restaurants dishes that only have half (or less) the calories of the original.
My cooking tragedies
Every time I move, it seems that my stove at the new place is the opposite of whatever I had before. Gas or Electric. I always burn everything for the first few weeks until I get used to it again. Oh, that and the time I added a tablespoon of baking soda to the peanut butter cookie dough instead of a teaspoon of baking powder.
