former pro pastry chef, now learning to love regular cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Indian chole, baked goods, pizza.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's kolachkies, the recipe for which I will never share. :)
My cooking triumphs
Christmas cookie madness every year.
My cooking tragedies
The little flower girl and ring bearer cakes I made for my wedding- on the way to the baker's house, a woman pulled right in front of me and I had to slam on the brakes in order to live to see my wedding. Unfortunately, the cakes didn't make it.
And the really rotten risotto. I added too much lemon juice, and there was absolutely no recovering from it. My kind husband ate the horrible mess, though.
