I am 17 and home schooled. A few years ago I discovered I was gluten intolerant. I enjoy cooking/baking for other people, and attempt to without them knowing that it is gluten free. I especially love to take small snacks or baked goods to my church group. "Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God" 1 Corinthians 10:31
My favorite things to cook
I typically make the usual baked goods (cookies, tarts, cakes), but I have been getting more into candy and confection making. I also enjoy ethnic foods and slow cookers.
My cooking triumphs
Dessert: pancakes, nougat, pies, pumpkin rolls, other seasonal recipes, cinnamon rolls, granola, and cookies.
Entrees: chorizo, curry chicken, General Tsao's chicken, lasagna, pizza, fried chicken.
My cooking tragedies
Just about anything I have made successfully, I have made badly. The more experience I am getting the less things get trashed. I had a recent failure with some candy that I made on a humid night. I now know that it actually does make a huge difference.
