I joined the club, Kids in Clarke’s Kitchen, in my middle school. In this club, we learn how to bake and cook. There are 15 kids that come after school once a month. So far, we have made brownies and crescent rolls. It was fun to make brownies because they were sweet and tasted very good. I am excited to make pancakes and cupcakes and other desserts.

Anne LaGreca is the advisor and is very nice. She started cooking when she was 10 years old because she was inspired by her grandma. She bakes fun desserts at school, but likes to cook chicken at home. She is going to teach me how to be a chef!
