I'm a teenager who has loved to cook (but mostly bake)since I was 5. My first memory of making anything was in kindergarten when my grandmother and I made gingersnaps and brought them to school. Since then, my parents haven't gotten me out of the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
I love baklava, fudge, frosting and cakes, cookies, meringue, ice cream, custards, rosemary lamb, mashed potatoes, salad dressings, and anything Christmas or Thanksgiving.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cookies and candies, California style cooking
My cooking triumphs
meringue, baked chicken, lemon cake filling, coconut cake, floating island, bread, lamb, salad dressings, yellow boxed cake!!!
My cooking tragedies
homemade gold cake that fell out of the pan and broke in two, curdled creme anglaise, sticky fudge
