When did you first get in to cooking and do you remember the first recipe you tried?

I have always been interested in food and cooking because of my Dad. We would make breakfast together every Saturday. The first recipe I could make by memory, however, is Rice Krispies Treats!

What's your kitchen like and how do you keep organized when cooking?

I love cooking in a clean kitchen! I don't store anything on my counters so I have lots of open space to work.

What tips would you give to someone wanting to become a better cook?

Learn some good knife skills. If you can chop things well cooking becomes more fun!

Who would you invite to your dream dinner party and what would you cook for them?


Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

I'm not much of a crafter, but I love running and playing the piano!
