About this Cook
Hi! My name is Krista. I am 13 years old. I'm hoping to have my own catering business one day. I love to cook when ever I can. It is one of my hobbies. Cooking can be a blast if you try new things. If my family gets bored of one meal I try a new one. With allrecipes I can find whatever I am looking for.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking/baking desserts. It's fun to try new things. Sometimes if I want to try a new dessert but my mom doesn't want more sugar in the house I will make it for a pot luck or friend. Another thing I like to do is try different marinades(anything in the refrigerator!) like a different dressing or seasoning. Spicy food(Mexican)and soups are another favorite of mine. And you can't forget the dinner parties those are always fun!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have a favorite family cooking tradition, but every Thanksgiving me and my sisters like baking a new pie or dessert that we have never had before.
My cooking triumphs
People love when my family invites them over for dinner because they know that their going to have a great meal that is made usually be me.
My cooking tragedies
No real tragedies, but my cakes rarely come out right.

Best Marinara Sauce Yet
I thought this sauce was spectacular! I didn't have any tomato paste but it still came out great. I also prefer red wine to white so I used that instead. I will be using this recipe again!

Special Buttercream Frosting
I thought this frosting came out great, and it wasn't gross like some buttercream frostings are. The only problem was that it came out a little to liquidy, but I put it in the freezer for a minute or two and thickened it up perfectly. I will probably be making it again.

Chocolate Frosting II
I loved this recipe! The best homemade frosting I have ever had. When refrigerated it makes a great fudge. I'll be making this again!
