    At home cook
    hi everyone! i know that i've posted a few things in the catering section but- i figured i should introduce myself a little. ;)

    well i'm 15 years old, homeschooled, and out of Ct.... ok and to get to stuff everyones interested in.... :) I plan on going to Ct Culinary Institute when I'm 17.... After that well, i thought of catering, but all you guys who helped me out, i have other ideas. :) I looove to cook, in fact I have brownies done right now.... haha so be right back... haha ok, they look good. and actually, speaking of brownies- i'm not much of a baker.... Just more of a cook... in fact, i'm really like rachael ray in a lot of ways.... She can't bake... and she hates measuring, and "eye balls" most of her stuff. ;) and that's what i do. haha sometimes with baking too.... which isn't a good thing. ;)

    Of course I can't say much about this.... b/c I don't work in a resturaunt- yet.... but i like the crazy kitchen thing.... rushing to get meals done, etc... my mother is opposite of me in that case.... But i like being pressured to get meals done... and I always cook with my mom for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.... having 10 people in the family- things can get really crazy... but i just love that feeling, I guess I'm kind of weird in that way. :) so who knows, maybe i'll end up working in a resturaunt.

    On the other hand.... When I'm older and have a family, i don't want to have to come home at 10 at night, when my kids would already be in bed.... i want plenty of time for them, but also be able to do what i love... that's why i thought the catering thing would be good.... if i could do it at home.... so many ideas. :chef:

    anyway, i think i dragged this out a bit so, sawwy. :blush: but i am just so excited i found this site.... i go to it first thing i go on the computer now!!!! :) well bye!!!
