|My name is Monica and I have always had a passion for food to the point where most of my childhood memories revolve around food in some way. I grew up in a family where we’d think about what was for lunch and dinner before we even finished breakfast. While I love food of all kinds, I love baking because it's simple and easy – you can make something delicious with just a handful of ingredients in a short period of time! Plus, it gives me a chance to play with chocolate! I love to watch cooking shows, read cookbooks and cooking magazines, and scour the Internet for recipes to try at home. Thanks to my wonderful husband and son, who are the ultimate taste-testers, I get to play in the kitchen and watch these simple treats become special moments.
