I am a twenty-one-year-old personal trainer living in Texas with my husband and our lunatic animals. I only started cooking about a year and a half ago, but I have been baking for years and consider baked goods (primarily desserts) my specialty.
My favorite things to cook
Because of my career and the fact that my life revolves around fitness, most of the things I make are low calorie or at least as healthy as I can make them. I love finding ways to make healthier desserts that don't taste like cardboard. I also love cooking with chicken. If I could pick one ingredient to cook with for every meal, it would be chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Breakfast. Everyone in my family is a breakfast food connoisseur. Never has there been better french toast than what comes out of my family's kitchen, and I make some pretty mean pancakes.
My cooking triumphs
All of my desserts have gotten a lot better and I'm now at the point where I feel comfortable to take a base recipe and make some pretty serious changes to it.
My cooking tragedies
Anything involving pork. It also took me an embarrassingly long time to learn how to cook minute rice. Yeah. I know.
