    Tayler's Bio:
    My name is Tayler and I was an English major/biology minor at the College of St. Scholastica! I have lived in Duluth all of my life so I know all the best local restaurants and hiking trails. On campus, I was involved with The Cable, Bella Voce, the Northstar Reports, the McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, and the English & Arts Club. Off campus, I volunteered with Mentor Duluth and enjoy throwing theme parties with friends and family.

Learning to Cook


For my first two years of college, I lived at home with my parents. Cooking, cleaning, laundry, and money were not on my radar. When I decided to move into my own place, responsibility hit me hard. Sure, I knew how to do chores and pay bills, but I never had to do them much before. I hated the soggy feeling of my hands when doing dishes and the stress of wondering whether or not something is in my budget. As I was learning the ways of adulthood, I found that cooking was the one new piece I truly enjoyed.
By the time I moved out, I was a professional Macaroni and Cheese chef, but that was about it. I had received a few cookbooks as gifts the Christmas prior, so I began marking every page that sounded good with a sticky note. As I tried new recipes, I found myself frequently calling my mom and grandma with many questions and it soon became somewhat of a tradition. Sure, you can survive college on ramen noodles, but why not learn a few of the famous family recipes and impress your friends with some good, old-fashioned home cookin’?
