I went to a one year Baking & Pastry Arts program outside of Buffalo, NY. I worked as both a cake decorator and restaurant pastry chef, but currently work in customer service (hey, it's easier with a small child.) But, I LOVE to bake still!
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, desserts, cakes, Italian foods
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies, my grandmother's balsamic vinegar chicken, my mother's pesto
My cooking triumphs
Created a few recipes that I think are pretty darn good! Check out T.T.'s cookies! My friend Annette and I created that one on a Tuesday after having some Tequila. Hence, the T.T-- for "Tequila Tuesday!" HA!
My cooking tragedies
Fortune cookies-- how in the world do you get those things to fold properly!?
