Born in Los Angeles. I have lived in Covina which is approximately 20 miles outside of Los Angeles. I enjoy cooking and baking for others. I especially like seeing the joy on their faces while eating. Usually I don't eat what I bake. I also like taking a recipe and doctoring it up a bit to make it my own.
My favorite things to cook
Chocolate chip cookies is my favorite. Other than chocolate chip cookies, I like experimenting with different recipes.
My cooking triumphs
One I can think of is a red velvet cake I made from scratch for a family gathering and friends. The best compliment I received was from a friend who thought I bought the cake at a bakery. Oh, and I think I make some pretty good chili beans.
My cooking tragedies
I tried baking a peach thing which called for a box of cake mix and canned peaches. It was horrible. Needless to say, I threw it away. I am sure I have had others.
