I have always loved to cook, since that first box of macaroni and cheese! I'm 16 now and entering my senior year of High School, and I plan to go to the Culinary Institute of America when I graduate. (college here I come!!)
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake (I have a small baking business that hasn't quite taken off the ground yet...), especially birthday cake. My family likes that too.. haha. But recently I've been cooking just about everything we have the ingredients on hand for. Try Taylor's Peroshkis they're so good! : ) Made those 2 days ago.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love learning to cook from my great grandma Dawson. She's an incredibly beautiful lady and a very talented cook. Her recipes are the most valued in my collection! Check out Grandma Dawson's Heavenly Fudge that will soon be on the site to try her wonderful cooking!
My cooking triumphs
I made a wedding cake!!! I couldn't believe I did it. My mom just recruited me to do that without letting me know (ahh!) and I had 2 days to do it and I got it done... praise the Lord!
My cooking tragedies
One time I quadrupled the banana bread recipe to make for my lovely teachers (I had made this recipe since I was 10 so it was no big deal)... to make 8 or so loaves of bread... and I forgot the sugar!!! Oh well, it did make a nice unsweet banana type bread but it was not what I was looking for! : )
