Just a girl who is fascinated by food :)
I love how food can transport people to another place, I love how food brings back memories and most of all, I love how good food can make any day better!
My favorite things to cook
Baking is my passion, but I am also a cooking fanatic!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love helping out my mom whenever she is in the kitchen making dinner and every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas, I always help her store the turkey away and portion it off after the big meal. I also sneak a few (okay, a lot) of bites!!
My cooking triumphs
When my classmates compliment me and tell me that my baking is fantastic, it really does mean a lot to me!
My cooking tragedies
One year for Christmas, I baked a Martha Stewart vanilla cake with a cranberry filling and chocolate ganache. This was a couple years ago, when I thought that I could just cut the butter and sugar in things by half and not have to worry about the taste being affected. Clearly, not adding enough butter and sugar to my cake turned out horribly... I even used whole wheat flour and it was as hard and dry as a rock! My chocolate ganache didn't set because I had used milk instead of cream and the cranberry filling was so runny, it just made the cake a gloppy mess... Needless to say, I now make sure to add aquedate amounts of everything into my food, even if it is unhealthy :)
