Love to cook for family, friends and "framily" (friends that are like family)
My favorite things to cook
Love to try new recipes and create recipes. I like to cook anything that inspires me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Started to learn to cook at my grandmother's side before I was big enough to reach the counter. Current favorite tradition is the boeuf bourguignon I make every year the day after Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
I've made some tiered fondant cakes that people have thought were pretty decent. Enjoyed catering weddings and other celebrations for several friends. Love making a crepe cake. I'm convinced my cheesecake is unbeatable. ;-)
My cooking tragedies
In college, I tried to create a Thanksgiving dessert at the last minute using only ingredients that were in my parent's kitchen. I remember it involved chocolate and bananas and that I somehow managed to create something that was neither pretty nor tasty.
