I started cooking when I was about 11 or 12 years old. My mom had gone back to work and making dinner for the family turned into my chore since I was the only one who was good at it. Trying new things and making up my own recipes just seems to come naturally to me now.
My favorite things to cook
I really like to make comfort food the best. My favorite dish is a recipe my mom had called Briar Patch Bake that is made with mac and cheese and bbq beef.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family doesn't have a lot of traditions. My mom was only good at making a few signature desserts and never really tried too many new things. She likes making german cuisine since that's what she grew up with. Neither of my grandmothers are very good cooks either.
