Well, yesterday morning I wanted something to do so I made some Cinnamon Hazelnut Biscotti, this recipe was good but kind of crumbly for me, so next time I might try a different recipe and just add cinnamon if I have to. I topped it by drizzling with white chocolate mixed with more cinnamon (I like that stuff!)
Then for dinner we had salad (made of: Lettuce, green pepper, red onion, tomatoes, craisins, carrots, cheese, and chicken) the chicken we used was the Tyson breaded chicken breasts, I think. They are amazing and it's so nice to be able to pop them in the oven when you're short on time! I mean, come on, despite the act we all try to put on, no one can really cook 100% home made food every day, can they? I'm not sure if I'll be cooking/baking today or not... I'd really like to! Recipe ideas for cookies? Brownies? .... something else? It's looking like rain today so who knows! I might have all the time in the world. Go ahead, help me out! Tell me your favorite sweets recipes! I mean the ones that make your family beg for more! Thanks!!!!

About Me
I'm a teenage chef in training.I love to cook, I make dinner for the family often, but more than anything, I LOVE baking! Biscotti, especially, since this would be a big part of my biggest dream, which is: owning my own cute little cafe' someday! I love visiting cafe's, I love the atmosphere, the full bakery case, and especially frozen coffee drinks! Running my very own just seems so spectacular to me! However, I'm keeping my eyes wide open and staying focused on learning in all the culinary areas, even the health aspect of it! Food is a passion for me, every day I wake up and think "so what can I make today?" :)
My favorite things to cook
Pretty much anything! I'm always ready to try something new, because I just want to know how to do it and be capable of it and just because I enjoy doing anything culinary, from baking to cooking to candy making, and anywhere in between!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love baking Christmas cookies every year, also we go up to a cabin for a week every year and MUST have my moms famous lasagna, which she and I now make together.
My cooking triumphs
There have been a few... like one time I made these pretty cool mini pumpkin cheesecakes with pecans, they were pretty!
My cooking tragedies
I don't know how I do it, but whipping cream is always either a big success or a brutal failure for me, which always makes me nervous when I see it in recipes! Maybe some day I'll learn the art of whipping cream... that would be nice...
