I am in love with great food. Why should you eat something you don't enjoy? Through my travels I have really figured out what I love.
There is something amazing about cooking/baking for other people. I enjoy sharing what I am passionate about with others.
My favorite things to cook
I actually write a baking column for our local newspaper featuring 'Gourmet Cupcakes' So, I am very into inventive baking. I come up with my own recipes.
I love cooking foods from all cultures and locations. I am willing to try anything once.
My favorite family cooking traditions
On Christmas Eve my Father and I always make latkes together. It is an odd tradition considering Chanukah isn't always during Christmas. But it is just something we both love and share together.
My cooking triumphs
One Christmas my Mother was recovering from major cardiac surgery and was unable to cook our Christmas dinner. I had to step up to the plate and cooked my first turkey this year. It turned out perfect and I was so proud. Now I love cooking for large groupos of people.
My cooking tragedies
I love to bake cookies, however I have been known to make errors... occasionally! I was watching a movie and baking cookies. I accidentally forgot to add an entire cup of flour to the cookies. Well, they spread out and took over the entire pan. Ooooooooozing down off the baking sheet and into the oven. Mmm peanut butter goo. It was a very bad scene.
