I love to experiment with recipes to make them my own. I've been cooking and baking since I was a kid, and now I get to make awesome things for my own kid!
My favorite things to cook
Crepes, chicken dishes, pastry items, most desserts, Italian, Mexican, Chinese, and breakfast foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We stem from a background in Italian, Irish, German, and French, and my husband brings in his Mexican tradition. Our foods are very flavorful and require a lot of prep or cooking time, but it's all worth it... Especially with a little drinking!
My cooking triumphs
Crepes, Germans, lasagna, pastry puffs, Napoleon puffs, crescent dishes, German chocolate cake, raspberry vanilla cupcakes, egg rolls, southern fried chicken, crab cream cheese wontons, enchiladas, cakes, frostings, soft sugar cookies, shrimp Alfredo, shrimp diavolo,
My cooking tragedies
Chocolate chip cookies... It's my weakness and I'm pretty particular! However, many of my cooking triumphs also began as cooking tragedies. Practice makes delicious!
