I'm a recent vegetarian, and lover of almost all baked goods. My mom is the Queen of Cupcakes, so I've learned a lot watching her. I like to make everything as fresh as possible. If I can make it myself instead of buying it, then I'll be happy!
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, and anything baked. I'm also really getting into cooking with tofu, since its so versatile and can be used in almost anything, including desserts! I am really interested in learning to cook authentic Mexican food, like tortillas, and tamales. Living in AZ got me used to really good quality, AUTHENTIC Mexican!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents always make a lot of food for holidays, and my mom bakes something almost every week! Its given me lots of ideas!
My cooking triumphs
Tiramisu! There are so many steps, and lots of ingredients, but its important to take your time and use quality ingredients to get that authentic Italian taste. Now, I've made it multiple times and its a favorite in my family!
My cooking tragedies
I'm not good at making things up as I go. I need a recipe, or atleast an idea of what I'm going for, or we will probably be going out for dinner!
