My name is Tejal Patel and I am a 21 year old marketing major at the University of Louisiana Monroe. I gradute in fall 2015 and I will be pursing a graduate degree in public relations and advertising. I love to cook, read, write, paint, draw and travel. I have a sister named Sonya, a little brother named Ross and I live with my parents and my grandmother. I hope to one day travel to Greece, Spain and Australia. My biggest dream in life is to have a food truck and travel the country showing people unique and delicious food.

Cooking has been a passion of mine since I was old enough to use the stove. I started out making breakfast for my dad and quickly became pretty creative with it.I would add a few new ingredients to things I was already comfortable making until I started creating my own recipes from scratch. A lot of my interest and creativity comes from watching the Food Network with my sister. We would watch shows like Sweet Dreams, Good Eats, Unwrapped and 30 Minute Meals. I also like watching the Cooking Channel.

Now, I still enjoy cooking and I have fallen in love with baking; it is the first thing I turn to when I'm stressed out from school or work. And the more stressed I am, the more complicated the item I try to make, even if it's in the middle of the night (my family and friends don't seem to mind helping me eat it all). Pinterest gives me a lot of creative ideas. I like using new cooking and baking tools and my favorite food of all time is macaroni and cheese, closely followed by ice cream.
