I am a high school teacher in Omaha, Nebraska. My love for cooking started at a young age when I used to bake goodies for my father and his coworkers. When I got out on my own, I starting cooking for friends (especially my single male friends who were living on frozen pizza).
For years now, my friends and family wait all year for my Christmas bake-a-thon. I spend two days every year making a plethora of cookies, bars, and snack mixes to give as gifts.
I love to cook because food is the one thing that brings all people together (everyone has to eat sometime!) My husband to be teases me because sometimes he does not even get through his first bite before I am asking him if he likes it.
My favorite kind of food is Indian food, but unfortunately I am a novice in that style of cooking. I am best known for my pasta dishes. A staple I have made for years is blackened chicken Alfredo (the Alfredo recipe was the first one in my cookbook on recipezaar).
Lately, I have been dabbling in Mexican cooking which my husband to be loves because his grandfather and grandmother are from Mexico.
Most of all, my Christmas treats have become a tradition for all those I know and care about. It is not Christmas without a huge plate of my cookies, bars, snack mixes and fudge.
