My name is Rebecca. I have a passion for the culinary arts and am now a full-time student in professional cooking. Bio & step mom to two handsome little boys named Xavier (5yrs)& Austin (8mths). Gotta throw in my bf Yannick somewhere in there, he's been super supportive of the major changes I've made in my life... Not bad for a guy I met on a dating website :P We also have two pet kitties, Star & Eevee. Feel free to drop me a line on my FB > https://www.facebook.com/Sakura.Amethyst
My favorite things to cook
I'd rather bake, but either way I enjoy making anything elaborate. I love a challenge! I also like to try new things, though the family isn't too crazy about that.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The holidays (Christmas & New Year's Eve) are always a big deal. Though my family has grown some in the last year, I still go all-out to make my boys enjoy the family/holiday spirit that I didn't have.
My cooking triumphs
Every time I make something that turns out great, especially if I've tweaked it to be healthier, is a triumph for me. I still have much to learn though!
My cooking tragedies
There have been many tragedies. Some were my own doing, other times the recipe failed me but I have taken each failure as a learning experience and have come to find what we like and don't like food-wise which is still a 'win' for me!
