I love to bake mainly cookies and cakes. I have always loved baking since i was little. My best experience in baking was being taught new things by my closest friend...she really taught me ALOT about baking.
I also like to make up new recipes with the recipes I already have, mainly to make a new unique taste.
My favorite things to cook
Chocolate Chip cookies,
Cake (any kind...I really like to ice cakes), and
Peanut butter cookies
My favorite family cooking traditions
The way "I" make nice soft fluffy chocolate chip cookies...this isn't really a Family thing, it was taght to me by my friend. When I made them for the first time she was amazed (becase they tasted different and better than hers). And now everyone looooves the Cookies (and always askes me to make them)
My cooking triumphs
The first time i made a REALLY good cake with a beautiful icing design. It was a Lemon Cake with Lemon icing...this was the best cake i have ever made.
My cooking tragedies
I remember this day CLEARLY. It was the first time i ever baked anything by myself..and so i decided to make something easy and simple with only a few ingrediants (i was about 9 years old). I attampted to make Shortbread Cookies. I thought that softening butter meant melting it..so i melted the butter. When i was finished mixing everything it was VERY RUNNY, and I was thinking how in the world am i supposed to shape THIS! so i added about 2 cups of extra flour to the mix, it was thick enought after that. Then when i Baked the cookies they burned (AHHHHH). I swear those were the most horrible cookies i have ever tasted.
