I've worked in restaurants my whole life, I've done catering and baking too. Now I'm currently a stay at home mom of 2 young kids who are my biggest critics! https://www.facebook.com/Westcoastmom
My favorite things to cook
Baking cheesecakes, pies, muffins, cookies and pastry. I love cooking and eating anything Italian!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making German food for my Husband. His family is from the Bavarian region. I am third generation German as well, but I grew up thinking I was Italian until I was 12! My parents owned a Pizzeria, and a Deli, and I worked in an Italian Pasta Bar, it's in my blood somewhere! :)
My cooking triumphs
Catering for large crowds, I love a challenge!
My cooking tragedies
Having to leave work on bus with marinara sauce spilled down me from neck to toes! Catering 3 lasagnes, only to discover that while I thought they were baking, the oven wasn't even turned on after an hour!
