My name is Megan and I have been helping in the kitchen as long as I can remember. My mom was always cooking and I was very interested in helping. When I was in third grade my mom went back to school, to culinary school. I loved tasting her 'experiments' and had the dreams of becoming a pastry chef. Now my dreams have changed but my love of cooking has not. My mom always pushed me in to being creative when I was cooking. When I was little I often made the cakes out of a box and used frosting out of a can. Now I feel that I have progressed and can now make a cake from scratch and frosting also. Though I love most types of cooking (not fish... ew) my favorite thing to cook is desserts. Last year my religion class really enjoyed my experiments that I brought in for the class to try. Though usually its cakes and cookies I have also tried some more complicated deserts like Pavlova and popcorn balls. (FYI boiling sugar to make popcorn balls is NOT a good idea if you are home alone).
