I first started baking with my mom at 5 years old. i hardly ever use recipes so this is a new concept for me!
My favorite things to cook
definitely chicken. anything and everything chicken! i love everything about it from the texture of it raw to the taste of it cooked.
My favorite family cooking traditions
definitely ravioli day. all the women (and a few young male cousins) get together once a year to make hundreds of raviolis from scratch. there's ALWAYS a flour fight! We're very italian :)
My cooking triumphs
Award-winning (from church) White Hot Chicken Chili! It's sooo good! Nice and spicy, but it doesn't burn you too much going in and it doesn't burn coming out! hehe.
My cooking tragedies
the first tiny cake i made when i was six. i forgot to use baking soda and it was hard as a rock!
