Written by my 16 Year old self in 2006:
I enjoy cooking and am good at it, I won $50 for my recipe in Better Homes and Gardens magazine this March (it was the first recipe I have ever entered in a compitition). I am a babysitter and enjoy children so I love making child friendly recipes that my pickey younger brother (14) will actually eat. That's it for now...
My favorite things to cook
I love anything that involves stove top, from stirfrys to itallian noodle dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Ever year my Grandma has an annual cousin cookie sale (started by me) where all the aunts/cousins get together and help her cook her wonderful oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. It was so fun to sell those cookies with the cousins. She lives in a tiny gated community in Three Arch Bay and we sold over 500 cookies last year!
My cooking triumphs
I won $50 for my recipe in Better Homes and Gardens magazine in March 2006 (it was the first recipe I have ever entered in a competition). I was 16 at the time. I haven't entered any major other compitions since then (unless you count small apartment/neighborhood/community cook offs- every competition I've ever entered I've won 1st place-- knock on wood).
