Hello, Welcome to Dawn of Cooking! Yes I am Dawn and have been cooking since 8 years old. My sweet mother could see that this is what I loved at an early age and really helped me by just letting me cook. Mom would praise and always be willing to help whenever I needed it. When I was a teenager I prepared all our family dinners, our deal was that Mom would clean up if I cooked haha.
The summer before I graduated from high school I moved in with a wonderful family and was their nanny and prepared all the meals. The Mom had leukemia and was on a special health food diet to give her the best nutrition plus try to help heal her. Sadly she did pass away but it was truly a special time in my life filled with life lessons of love and family.
After graduating from high school I attended culinary arts school here in Alaska at the University of Alaska in Anchorage and Fairbanks. After graduating I had jobs as a baker, worked in the hospital, in an awesome health food restaurant and had my own bread baking business!
Fast forward to present I am married and our family owns a productive printing business, we have 5 grown children and 3 grandchildren! Healthy eating and cooking is really important to me and I love sharing this with others.
I hope that you can enjoy my blog and cooking channel on YouTube Dawn of Cooking!!
