I'm an early teen and love to cook- but mostly eat. My parents don't keep fruit rollups or poptarts or junk food at all in the house, so when I come home from school and realize I want something sweet and filling, I cook.Same happens at breakfast time- I don't want cereal, I don't want toast, so I cook. Now I cook regularly and love it.
My favorite things to cook
Stir-fried rice, egg-drop soup (Emeril's recipe!), candied nuts, and chocolate mousse.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cook, cook, cook. Cook late at night. Cook early in the morning. Edible presents are always best, etc.
My cooking triumphs
Once, I made a full 8-layer lasagna with one of my friends. It took us 4 hours, but it was a beaut! Quite a feat for two teens, eh?
My cooking tragedies
Ughh... recently made a batch of brownies and left out half the sugar on accident. Turned out bitter and flat. Oops!
