15 year old whose favourite place is the kitchen

I'm 15 and I love to cook and bake! My mom got me into preparing food when I was little and it's become my greatest passion. I love trying new recipes and making my own creations. I've much to learn and I'm hoping to gain knowledge and inspiration from connecting with other food-lovers on this app.

Welcome to DC honeydew!

So tell us, which do you prefer, baking or cooking? Your favourite recipe? Your, LOL, latest failure? or biggest success?

Congrats to your mum for getting you started early. In this age of quick meals already prepared and frozen, it's good to hear someone who loves to be in the kitchen.

Ask away! Someone here is bound to know the answer. Or at least think they do... ahem, moi?

Thanks for replying! Gosh, it's almost impossible to choose between cooking and baking, so I'll just say that I prefer baking as a stress-reliever since the process of measuring each ingredient exactly and waiting for the food to bake while I enjoy the glorious smell coming from the oven is so therapeutic to me, and I like to cook when I'm feeling creative, since it's easier to experiment with different ingredients and flavours. I can't choose a favourite recipe; there are just so many; but one that sticks out is my favourite recipe for good old chocolate chip cookies. I know it by heart and making them always brings me joy. My most recent failure is probably cauliflower breadsticks - I'm not sure if what I did wrong but they didn't turn out anything like "bread," more like pureed cauliflower that was crispy on the top and covered with cheese. It was certainly edible, but not what I was going for. A big success was zucchini lasagna, a recipe I was pretty sceptical about and was pleasantly surprised to dicover was delicious! I did not expect this, but I didn't miss the pasta (one of my favorite foods). Yes, my mom is the most important person in my life and I'm so grateful to have her as a mentor. Thanks so much for offering your advice; I'll be sure to hit you up if any questions arise!
