I have been cooking and baking since I was a little tot. My passion grew when I realized, I could create things my family and friends would enjoy. To me, there is no better way to tell someone you love them, then to create a delicious meal for them.
At age 5, I was standing on a step stool, waiting for my mom to pass the spatula so that I could mix the banana bread batter. At the age of 12, I was watching Emeril Live instead of MTV. For my 16th birthday, I asked for something unexpected (no, not a car). I got the best gift ever; my very first Kitchen Aid stand mixer! My passion for cooking took a bit of a hiatus while in graduate school. But now my kitchen is back in full swing!
If there is one thing I have learned, it is that food truly does bring people together.
