I am a country girl from the foothills of California. After college, I spent two years working in South East Asia as a first grade teacher. I now work as a writer for a magazine.
My favorite things to cook
My boyfriend is a chef and luckily I never have to cook. What I contribute is lovely desserts! I love to bake, which is ironic because I don't really have a sweet tooth.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making spritz cookies (cookie-press cookies) with my Mom at Christmas time, we do it ever year!
My cooking triumphs
I make a fabulous lemon curd cheesecake which has won two awards so far. It's a hit and pretty easy to make!
My cooking tragedies
Ohhhh, there have been many. I am notorious for leaving out a key ingredient in any given recipe....
