I love baking.  I enjoyed making cupcakes.  One of my first jobs in high school was working in a college cafeteria.  It was not an average college cafeteria.  There were many special occasions and events year round.  I learned quantity cooking.  I was always baking at home.  However, this high school job is where I gained standardized and quantity cooking experience.  I went on to study and work in the food and beverage industry.  My favorite class was Food Chemistry!  After teaching ESL abroad,  I returned to the states and became a food service instructor.  Truthfully, whether I have been in the kitchen watching my dad fry chicken, at my cousin's house making tacos, or working with my own kiddos, I have had the best fun in a home kitchen!  I would like to share some of these experiences in class and have some home baking fun!  My teaching style is interactive and practical.  I explain why we do what we do and demonstrate the process as we go. Get ready for a new cooking adventure with me!  I will see you soon.
