I'm actually still a teenager, but I love to cook. I'm a vegetarian, and I am really trying to build up a repetoire of vegetarian recipes to make and to inspire others. (=])
My favorite things to cook
I love to base new recipes on old snacks, such as Caprese Pasta Salad, Campfire S'mores, and Cherry Cordial Cake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Still trying to get them all down pat!
My cooking triumphs
Caprese Pasta Salad! I was actually watching an Olive Garden commercial when i saw a dish that looked like linguini, alfredo, tomato, and basil. I thought, "How cute? Just like Caprese!" Unfortunately, the only thing left to make for the meal we were to have that night was a salad. So with the help of my cooking maestro, my aunt Alicyn, we used fusili with pesto, oil, mozzerella and cherry tomatoes. It was a super hit at the table that night and something we'll make again and again!
My cooking tragedies
When I was five, I thought i'd try my hand at making an appetier that night. I decided to make some blobs of cheese, breadcrumbs, flour, and milk, bake it and call it cheese bake. I thought it was a hit, but my whole family totally lied and said they loved it. Now that I'm older it's still a joke, and i'm so embarrased whenever someone tells it.
