Why I want to be mentor in this category: I enjoy helping others as I would want someone to help me if I needed it. :)
What inspires me in this category: The holidays always were very big baking times for my family. I used to watch and learn how to make cakes, cookies, pies, etc. by watching my family. They have instilled in me the joy for cooking, that I am now passing on to my children.
Experience: I've always loved to bake, every since I was a child.
Biggest Lesson Learned: To make sure that I measure my ingredients...found that out very young :(
Books, classes, teachers that have helped me: Any and every cookbook I could get my hands on
Education, Awards, Pro Experience: I earned a cooking badge when I was a Girl Scout, does that count? :)
