Living in the bay area with my fiance, and two year old daughter.
My favorite things to cook
Anything sweet. I was born with a inherited sweet tooth, and grew up watching my mother and grandmother bake. Pies, cakes, cookies, and candy are my absolute favorite things to bake.
As far as cooking....it runs the gamut. I like to try lots of different things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Watching my grandma bake chocolate chip cookies. My sister and I used to sneak dough and fight over who got to lick the beaters.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime a recipe I create turns out to be a success.
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to bake a single crust apple pie. The filling essentially became apples and sweet water. Not good.
