Science says that your taste buds change every five to seven years. At age seven, I went through a miraculous conversion where I began enjoying the taste of parmesan cheese, and by 13, I couldn’t stand it.

One of the hardest things about cooking (and life in general) is waiting. Waiting is the reason that my icebox cookies always turn out a little bit more runny and my sugar cookies are sticking to my fingers before I even get a chance to roll them out.

When a team has two or more superstar athletes on their team, you’d think it’s a gift. Two times the talent, two times the performance!
