I am 12 years old, and I am the second oldest out of 8 kids. :) I love the smells that come out of the kitchen when I cook, and the looks on their faces when I create an impecible dish.
My favorite things to cook
Anything from cakes to cookies to cinnamon rolls. I also really enjoy making lasagna, ravioli, and different pastas.
My favorite family cooking traditions
In our family, we always have a HUGE Thanksgiving celebration and invite everyone we know. We always have TONS of fun and LOADS of leftovers for the next weeks. :)
My cooking triumphs
Our neighbors were over on one sunny afternoon, when I decided to bake some muffins. My mom wanted to use up our zuccinis, so I decided on zuccini chocolate chip muffins. They turned out PERFECT! Beautiful on the outside, and moist on the inside. To this day, they still beg me to bake more! :)
My cooking tragedies
I left my sister in charge of some cookies I was baking one day, because I had to go clean my room. When I got back downstairs a half hour later, my sibs were crowded around the TV watching a movie. I suddenly detected a foul burning stench in the air. She had forgotten to check on the cookies! When I got them out, they were burnt to a crisp. Yet she still insisted on eating them. :)
