I am 11 years old and love to cook. It's all i ever do! I normally bake, not so much cook things like for dinner. I love to bake cakes and put decorations on. I absolutely love to cook! On the Holidays, I always help my mom cook all day. My mom thinks its incredible that at my age I can help her cook all day long on the Holidays, and I enjoy it. allrecipes.com really does help me with my cooking and helps me improve, because of all the recipes on here. :)
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are cakes and cupcakes.. Well I guess those two count as the same thing, so my favorite thing to cook is cake and just different things I have never cooked before. That's why I use allrecipes, because I can get new recipes that I have never even heard of, and make them. Making a new recipe always makes someones new favorite in my house. I also like to make bread. With yeast rolls, you can make tons of things.. and i do!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking traditions are making our pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving. I always make the pie homemade. My other favorite is making sweet potato casserole. We have it every Thanksgiving and Christmas. Making this is fun because you can keep testing it, without it being bad for you because your potato is already cooked, so you can perfect it to your taste.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs are bread and cake. I made my first bread all on my own last summer. I was 10! I made yeast rolls, and out of it i made about 2 dozen rolls and 1 dozen cinnamon rolls, all on my own. With cakes, I put the frosting on and usually do something with it to make it look cool or pretty. I have made a homemade german chocolate cake with my mom and for my mom, I made a german chocolate cake with strawberry icing, and chocolate covered strawberries around the perimeter, and in the middle it said, "Welcome Home Mom!" I made that in August, I was 11 years old.
My cooking tragedies
Some of my cooking tradegies include brownies, big time. There is just something about brownies that I cannot make homemade! They are always flavorless and gross.
