I'm Kelso. I'm 16, and I've been cooking since I was about 7. I've always loved cooking, and I love changing things up to make them MY way. I recently competed in the PROSTART culinary competition in Sheridan, Wyoming and loved every minute of it.
My favorite things to cook
Stuffed Bell Peppers
Basically anything that I think my friends, family or myself might enjoy.=)
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was younger we used to go camping a lot, and every year my mom would fire up the dutch-oven and make AWESOME pot roast. For some reason, it always tastes better when it's cooked in a dutch oven.
My cooking triumphs
=) Recently, my High School obtained a new Super, and that dick head decided to make us do finals. Never in my four years of attending G-S JR-SR high, have I ever had to do "Finals". On top of that, the guy is a clock nazi and has been on my case all year for being late for classes. In my culinary class, my "Final" was a "Cook Off" set up just like ProStart. 60 minutes to prepare a four course meal, using only two butane burners and two of the judges were Mister Clock Nazi and the tramp he cheated on his wife with. After I kicked everyone's and took first in the competition, he awarded me my medal. The next day, after I was late again, he pulled me into his office and asked WHY I was late. I just looked at him. Then he said "Good job in the cook-off. Your dish was amazing." and he sent me on my way. DOUCHE BAG!!! =)
My cooking tragedies
When I was younger I attempted to use a (not-so-easy) recipe to make mousse. TOTAL DISASTER. I didn't whisk the chocolate into the whipping cream fast enough and there were huge chunks of chocolate in it. It was terrible! After refrigerating it, the chocolate chunks were like rocks. =(
