Last year I started cooking. My mom and dad are great cooks, and I wanted to learn how to cook like them.
I started by making basic foods like chicken tenders, French fries and eggs. I got tired of eating plain foods so that’s when I started experimenting with recipes.
I love breakfast food, so I started with pancakes, adding different items each time I made them. That’s how I created my French toast recipe, and it is yummy! I use whole wheat bread, milk, eggs, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon and butter.
My family loves to eat my breakfast, and I think I want to be a chef when I grow up.
