I'm 30 and own a coffee house in Austintown, Ohio. I have a great significant other and my nieces mean the entire world to me. I was raised by my then 70 year old Great grandmother who taught me how to cook from the time I was very young. Baking is a not-so-much situation for me. I prefer to cook.
My favorite things to cook
I don't necessarily have a "favorite" and I can pretty much crack out anything that crosses my path. I do not know how to cook small so everything I make involves sharing with my best friends and making sure the neighbors have eaten. I really can't say that there has ever been a time someone wasn't happy and that is a pretty fulfilling thought.
My cooking triumphs
I am a master bruchetta maker. I make it so many different ways that I can hardly keep track. I am also pretty talented in the grilling department. I can't imagine turning on my oven when the no-mess grill is 5 steps away!
My cooking tragedies
I just avoid anything that says "cut-in", "proof", "knead", "dough hook", "active rise yeast", "pastry cutter" and the like. I cook, not bake!
