I'm a young inspiring chef. I hope to some day become a Choclatier. After all, there never can be enough chocolate :) My grandparents gave me my first cookbook this past Christmas called Greatest Ever Chocolate...so I guess you could say it is my favorite. I started baking two years ago and sold my items at our local Farmers Market. That began my love for baking, and joy of cooking. I especially like to take a recipe and change it. Sometimes the outcome has been really good and other times, well... I hope to gather some family recipes from my great grandma and my grandmas because many people recall dishes they used to have when a child only to have the recipes lost forever when the person passes away. Oh, and yes just in case you are wondering I am related to Chef Buggsy Mate...she is my Awesome Mom! The one who has instilled a love of cooking in me. And what came first the Buggsy or the Mate? I got my nickname from my mom first, then I came up with hers.
