I'm a child development major. I live with my boyfriend of 3 years and our two beautiful cats. I love to bake and cook...it really is a stress relief for me. Martha Stewart is my idol! I love to clean, garden, do all kinds of house stuff. Big shabby chic fan...Target is my favorite store. I'm an old throwback of a 50's housewife!
My favorite things to cook
My peanut butter cookies because they elicit choruses of mmm's and yum's. I like to cook Italian, my heritage. I love spicy food, curry, Mexican, stir fry, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lots of old Italian recipes dating back five generations...
My cooking triumphs
Hmm...throwing my first dinner party for 10 people at 21...Doing the four course dinner, cleaning, decorating, etc.
My cooking tragedies
My dad's carnitas recipe. I ruined them somehow. :(
