I'm a teen who loves to cook. I especially like making healthy meals, although I have a weakness for desserts!
My favorite things to cook
Several years back I was really into foreign cuisines, so I was baking foods from Austria and Italy and Greece and Hungary and Russia, to name a few.
Overall, I like making muffins, cookies, crisps, side dishes. I prefer working with chicken & fish to red meats. Some of my favorites to make (and eat!) are Sweet/sticky/spicy chicken and Thai pineapple-fish noodles. Yum!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We make green bean casserole every year for Thanksgiving.
When I was a kid we'd make dozens of batches of Christmas cookies to give away as well as keep some for ourselves!
My cooking triumphs
I don't really cook anything spectacular. Mostly I cook for my parents and two sisters. I do remember feeling particularly proud of mastering sourdough cinnamon rolls though - that was fun.
My cooking tragedies
One time when I was making homemade sourdough bread, I accidentally placed wax paper on my baking sheet instead of parchment paper - then placed the bread on top and popped the whole thing in the oven at 400 degree! Needless to say, that whole batch of bread was pretty much worthless as the wax paper was melted into the bread. That's probably one of my main "tragedies"!
