I've been working in restaurants for about 8 years, mostly waiting tables, but the chefs at the restaurant I'm working now have been giving me a lot of tips on how to be a better cook. I never could afford culinary school, but I hope to make a living one day as a baker. No one pays me for it now, but I'm always trying new things and feeding my coworkers the results.
My favorite things to cook
Anything involving sugar or bread!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was raised on take-out and Hamburger Helper....I don't know where my love of cooking came from.
My cooking triumphs
I've impressed with the birthday cakes I've made for friends and family.
My cooking tragedies
I was about 8 years old the first time I baked cookies, and I forgot to put the flour in! My parents thought it was hilarious, and I was so embarrassed, but I have never since forgotten an ingredient in a recipe!
