Hi! I'm Karen, I'm 18 years old and love to spend my free time cooking.
I'm pretty sure that many recipes that I have are ones I got from this website, but I'll put them all up anyway to share with others. I'd love to give credit where it's due, but I don't remember whose recipes are whose, so if it's yours, feel free to let me know! :)
My favorite things to cook
I have a few favorite things to cook, but I bake more often than cook. I love making all types of cookies, cakes, and other desserts. I try to make enough so that I can share with my neighbors and friends (this also keeps me from eating too many! lol).
My favorite family cooking traditions
When my sister and I were younger, my mom would always make cookies, especially on Christmas Eve to leave some for Santa. Now that I have a 5 year old little brother, my sister and I bake cookies with him to keep the tradition going.
My cooking triumphs
I made Italian-Style Baked Crunchy Chicken for a Christmas party and everybody loved it! I also made sugar cookies for a school picnic sort of thing and everyone didn't believe that I made them, they were sure I bought them from somewhere.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at making Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies was an absolute disaster. This was years ago and I have no idea where I went wrong, but some of the cookies were runny and didn't even bake and others came out extremely thing and burned. I was so angry, I swore I would never bake again lol
