i'm only a teenager, but i love to cook more than anything! i have a huge family, twelve kids, but only five live in the same house as me right now. i started cooking when one night a babysitter was making dinner, she watched us constantly(nearly every night,) and i couldn't help but noticing that the only thing she would ever make was spaghetti with ragu. i quickly got sick of this and got permission to use the stove. ever since, i've been searching for recipes for hours on end! if you have a recipe that you would like to share with me(i LOVE healthy recipes, actually, i won't make a recipe over 400 calories with more than 4 grams of fat) please do!
My favorite things to cook
i originally started out baking, but now i enjoy cooking as well! anything with sugar is appealing to me, i especially enjoy trying to find healthy twists to not so healthy dessert items! i love italian food, so i've been trying to find healthy options to traditional dishes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is Norwegian, and my grandma can make mean norwegian meatballs and mashed potatoes, i would love to learn how to make those! i would also like to learn how to make lefse and my other grandmother's baked beans!
My cooking triumphs
right now, i just love to cook, and i love that my siblings always get excited when they hear that i'll be the one making dinner that night, it really makes me feel good!
