About this Cook
Hi, I'm Fran! I'm 19 years old, and I've been cooking for about two years. I'm about to start culinary school really soon! (On November 8th! Wish me luck!) I cook daily for my family and hopefully I can be an even better cook..
My favorite things to cook
I mostly bake, so I like making different cookies and trying new pie and cake recipes. I'm always trying to find new things to do with chicken, ALWAYS! lol
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have a tradition...Well not anymore, our tradition was Nana cooking for our family during holidays. She died from a stroke in 2007, so hopefully I can bring that tradition back.
My cooking triumphs
I entered in my first cooking competion, I was soooo nervous I was shaking. I made sauteed chicken, roasted potatoes, and cauliflower. I was freaking out because I had only two days to prepare because I found out super late that I was even accepted into the contest. I didn't win :( BUT! The judges told me I had great potential so I was proud of myself!
My cooking tragedies
Biscuits....lol I tried making buiscuits a few months back, first time came out AMAZING! Second time...um..let's change the subject lol. It came out awful!

Old-Fashioned Pancakes
I basically did everything except I didn't have any milk at home so I used a little less than 1/2 a cup of condensed milk and added enough water to make 1 1/4 cup and to dilute it. They came out really fluffy, a little thick but I liked it. I would make this recipe again!

Lemon Chewy Crisps
I really liked this recipe because it was a very flavorful bright cookie! I was really amazed by how lemony it was, but it wasn't overpowering, Great job!

Lemon Square Bars
Overall I think it was a good recipe, a little too sweet for my taste, I'm gonna add a bit less sugar and maybe a bit more lemon juice, but I do like the recipe, Good job!
