I am 15 years old, and I live with my 4 sisters, parents, and my two parakeets. I started cooking when I was 10, and have fallen in love with it. I am an excellent reader, so on days that I have no homework to do, instead of hanging out with friends or turning on the t.v., I open up my recipe book and read my heart out.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking everything! Give me a recipe and I will make it like a pro, or I will even freestyle it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making traditional Middle Eastern cuisine with my mom and Grandma. My favorite dish that I make with them is grape leaves and rice, wrapped up and served with yogurt.
My cooking triumphs
My best cooking triumph was when I first made beignets. They were light and fluffy and were gone from the plate before the sun even set on the day I made them.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made pizza dough I put too much yeast in it and it overflowed when I set it aside to rise. More than 1/3 went bye-bye because it flowed onto the floor and counter.
