About this Cook
My name is Lissy and I am 14 and I live in WA state and I have a ton of siblings and I have to feed all 30 of our stupid chickens. THE END. Does anyone have a good chicken soup recipe?
My favorite things to cook
Mostly I bake things....cookies and stuff. I think it would be cool to do some gourmet things though. I will probably be going to the community college this fall for the running start program and I REALLY want to take gourmet cooking there!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
For Christmas or sometimes Thanksgiving, my grandma always makes Fruit Soup which is kind of weird, but I guess we're kind of used to it. It has raisins and prunes and canned peaches and tapioca and cinnamon sticks in it.
My cooking triumphs
When I was about seven, I entered a candy-making contest at the Puyallup Fair. I made divinity and I got first place!!!!! Then I think two years later I decided to do it again, and I made lollipops and that time i got second place! Mwahahha!
My cooking tragedies
The worst thing I can think of is when I was about six, and my bossy older sister decided we were going to make shoo-fly cake ALL BY OURSELVES! (I think we read about it in a book or something and we just HAD to make it!) So we mixed it all together, and were so pleased with ourselves when it came out of the oven looking perfectly scrumptious. The first bite had everyone choking and rushing to the kitchen sink for water. We had put a tablespoon of salt in it instead of a teaspoon! Even the chickens rejected it. =(

Apple Pie I
This was delicious! I'm not exactly an experienced pie maker, but we had a lot of apples from our tree, and baking is better than painting the greenhouse (my other alternative), so I decided to make apple pie. This is definitely a keeper.... straightforward and easy. Next time I will slice my apples a little thicker and see what happens, but they were great thin also! ;D

Basic Flaky Pie Crust
Ohhh this was REALLY GOOD!!!!!! So basically, I've always been sort of....scared to death -or maybe just intimidated- by making pie crust, ever since I tried it when I was about six. Let's just say it didn't turn out that well. As a rule, I don't care for using pastry cutters (I just hate having to always scrape out the butter that gets stuck in there and everything....I'm weird that way), and try to avoid recipes that require them: i.e. Pie Crust! Basically, I hadn't ventured a pie (at least not one with homemade crust) since the disastrous six-year-old experience. I guess you know where this is leading. I made it, and it wasn't too clumpy or too dry or too sticky, and it rolled out really nice and easy, and I baked it (with apples from our old tree out back--little tiny ones that took FOREVER to peel and slice--but that's a different story), and it turned out :::::::::::::::::::PERFECT::::::::::::::::::::::: !! So thank you for defeating my fear of pie crusts AND for giving me this awesome recipe that I will certainly use again!

Tangy Dill Potato Salad
Oooh! This was really yummy! I love potato salad, but really hate how the kind you buy in a tub at the grocery stores are always packed with onions! I really hate onions. But this only called for green ones (which I don't mind)! That was pretty cool! But baisically, it just plain tastes good! It was perfect for my family's barbecue party. Definitely a keeper. =)
