I lead a healthy life, but I like to spoil myself occasionally. If I'm going to splurge, I'm going to do it right.
My favorite things to cook
Breakfast: Banana Bread
Healthy: Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken
Not so much: Baked Ziti or Enchiladas
Dessert: Cheesecake (I love to see it all come together)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Rolling out Sugar cookies and Christmas Fingers with my mom in the kitchen while watching White Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Baking at high altitude. Preparing pasta and gaining approval from an Italian. Serving apps at a family gathering where everyone Yumms outloud. A firehouse that will eat everything I bake before touching any other dessert.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made mac & cheese out of the box, I wasn't aware you were supposed to strain the noodles. My poor niece had to eat it like soup!
