I have been a baker for about six years and own a gourmet cookie business, www.bitesbakingcompany.com. I am always looking for new baking recipes. I would ultimately like to assemble a book filled with perfect recipes for cookies, brownies, cakes and other desserts.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake just about anything. I also like cooking things that are quick and that my kids will like. I like eating healthy. I enjoy grilling and always try to incorporate as many food groups into a meal as I can.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is a great cook! My daughter loves to bake with me and try our results (including licking the bowl, spoon, and her fingers). My son also likes to help and be a taste tester. I would love to start a holiday cookie cut-out tradition with the kids.
My cooking triumphs
I have come up with a pretty great original brownie recipe that is sort of a mix of several other recipes. It has three different kinds of chocolate and is pretty involved, but it's also quite fantastic. I also have made a couple of gorgeous wedding cakes that my clients have raved about, and that makes me so proud. For me, it's all about the taste.
My cooking tragedies
In a word - fudge. My only total failure!
