More About Me


Profile Picture

I like baking. I'm getting better at macarons, but my macaron's feet still don't have the height I'm looking for. I've also been into making ice cream recently. My best batch so far was mango ice cream. Gelato and frozen custard are up next for me. It will be interesting to see how much the texture differs for each type of frozen dessert. I've got a cool cat, Shadow. Shadow's a bit of a gangster. He gets into fights, and his archnemesis is the next door neighbor's cat, Marbles. My favorite grocery store is the MT Mart in Austin. If you like noodles, they've got a massive selection. I know a bunch of trivia about ancient Rome since I took 4 years of Latin in high school. The photo of the shore above is actually one I took at Capri when I went with the Latin club.
