Signature baked good: "My macarons are my most sought [after] by my family and friends. They love seeing what I come up with."
Is baking an art or a science? "For me, it's more art. I absolutely hate science. I'm not a science person at all."
Butter tarts, raisins or no raisins? "No raisins. I like pecans. It has to have a crunch to kind of balance out that creamy texture."
