Cooking was an important part of growing up in my family. I have been cooking since I was 8 years old and have been improving every year since. I enjoy pushing my ability to cook new and interesting meals and love the compliments when the new dish is a hit.
My favorite things to cook
Sweet treats! I love to bake. I would say my specialty is cheesecake, but I love to bake cakes, cookies, breads, and pies. Most recently I have started making cake-pops, although simple to make they can be very time consuming.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cookie baking at Christmas time
My cooking tragedies
Too many to remember, but hey, that's all part of the game.
