I snow ski, team rope, and decorate cakes. Mom of two, ages 7 and 5. Grew up and still live in Northern CO where my family has a farm and feedlot which my husband manages.
I had my own cake decorating business, but realized it took away too much time from my family. I am back to decorating for family and friends and enjoying every moment of this creative outlet.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that amazes my family and friends. I love to get them to try new things- things that they always though they would hate, but end up really enjoying.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and I cook dinner together several times a week- we try new dishes all the time, rely on many old favorites, but the tradition is that we cook, and eat, as an extended family.
My cooking triumphs
I bake all of my cakes, fillings and icings from scratch.
I have appeared as an assistant, twice, on both TLC's Ultimate Cake Off two times, and Food Network's Challenge.
My cooking tragedies
I tend to not follow any recipe to a "T"- and while I have great cooking instincts, every now and again that results in a flop ;)
