I am an administrative assistant with a passion for food. I enjoy all aspects of food from purchasing the ingredients to putting the dishes together to eating it. I'm a regular foodie. I love to bake and decorate cakes as well as cook. I have been cooking and creating recipes since elementary school, and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking lots of things. My favorite thing to do is experiment and create new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year for Thanksgiving each member of the family is assigned to bring a dish as their contribution to dinner/dessert. I enjoy sampling the new desserts or dishes that people have come up with.
My cooking triumphs
I won the grand prize of $3,000 in the 2005 IGA Hometown Holiday Recipe Challenge in Chicago.
My cooking tragedies
I followed a cake recipe without questioning it when it called for 3 tablespoons of salt. The cake was so salty I had to toss it and start all over.
