I'm a born and bred Kansas girl. I'm a college student majoring in Art History. I made my first apple pie at age 11 and I've been a serious baker and amateur gourmet cook ever since. I love creating theme menus and challenging myself by trying out new and interesting recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love the finickiness of baking and I love trying out new appetizer and dip recipes. I've recently made my 3rd Thanksgiving turkey and I think I have it mastered :) What I really enjoy cooking and eating are unpretentious, comfort-type foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a long line of great home cooks on both sides of my family. My mom has been making amazing chicken and noodles on Sunday afternoon for as long as I can remember.
My cooking triumphs
Apple Pie, of course! Also my Thanksgiving turkeys.
My cooking tragedies
Fortunately I haven't really had a notable cooking tragedy yet... that probably means I'm due for one :(
