About this Cook
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!

Peach Muffins
My family really needed to use up some peaches so I picked this recipe since I figured I could freeze some. I made a healthier version by using whole wheat flour for a half of the total flour, mostly unsweetened applesauce for the oil, and using anout 1-1 1/2 cups of sugar. Still, they were very moist. Next time for a little more flavor, I'll add some ground nutmeg. I wouldn't go out of my way to make these, unless I had some too ripe peaches. Pretty good!

Juicy Peach Crisp
I LOVED this recipe. (TIP: boil a pot of water and stick the peaches in for about 20 seconds. The skins will peal right off.) this peach crisp recipe is so versatile. I used a splash of vanilla and a splash of almond extract, about 8 medium sized peaches, and about 1/2 cup less sugar. To the peach mixture, I added a splash of fresh lemon juice and a tablespoon of flour because my peaches were super juicy. Awesome, I plan on making this many times in the future.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
I've tried all kinds of cookie recipes and I've finally found the keeper. I will never use a different recipe. I followed this recipe exactly as stated. Froze most of them for later because I love frozen chocolate chip cookies. So good, thanks!
