I am 15 years old and I love to cook/bake. I'm really interested in nutrition so it's important that I cook things that are pretty healthy. But i really love to bake, so I substitute a lot of ingredients to make desserts healthier. I love to cook for my family and friends. Cooking is only a small part of my life. I play high school sports and hang out with my friends all the time, just like any other kid.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipes. I'm always a little anxious at first, so I follow the recipe closely. I think I'm better at making desserts, breads, cookies, etc. than dinners, but I have fun doing both.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just getting in the kitchen with my mom, grandma, and even my friends is always so much fun. You can totally ruin the recipe and know that it doesn't matter because you can just laugh it off.
My cooking triumphs
When people tell me they really like what I made always makes me feel happy.
My cooking tragedies
Worst cooking experience ever? Definetly peanut brittle. So frustrating!
