I began cooking at the age of 12. I started off small and by the age of 15 I was making full course meals. I have always loved being in the kitchen. To me, cooking is therapeutic.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook is anything that puts a smile on my family's face. If they love it, it's a keeper in my recipe box. I love making any lemon dessert. Also, you can't go wrong with the crockpot.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Unfortunately my family doesn't have any cooking traditions. I don't come from a family of people who enjoy cooking the way I do.
My cooking triumphs
I love finding new and challenging recipes. I like to know I can make the same thing, even change a few things and kinda make it my own.
My cooking tragedies
I've definitely had a few cooking boo-boos over the years. But one that sticks out the most is when I was 15. I was baking a bundt cake. I was so excited, it was my first one to make. Well I didn't spray my pan down enough and when I went to go turn my bundt pan over for the cake to come out, it split in half. I was so upset. I just remember standing there crying.
