Sweet Treats Interview with Laura

Today we have our first interview with no other person than my sister, Laura. She just recently started a blog titled, "Laura's Sweet Treats," on which she posts mouth-watering desserts and all sorts of other treats.

Hello, Laura! I'm so glad to be able to interview you about your blog today. To start off, could you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I'm a young girl with a passion of baking. I'm also writing a Sci-Fi novel and I am in a year round competitive gymnastics program.

It sounds like you have some awesome activities going on right now. When did your love of baking begin?

It's hard to remember, maybe around age eight. I've always hung around in the kitchen with my dad or mom when something was cooking.

What's your favorite thing to cook or bake?

My favorite thing is something I haven't shared on my blog yet. (I'm saving it for a special occasion:) It's a chocolate cake with white chocolate and red raspberry sauces. Otherwise a big batch of cookies is always good!

Yum, it sound delicious! Have you had any baking disasters? If so, please tell!

There was one time when I was around nine that I had a friend over who also liked to bake. We decided to make chocolate chip cookies. We used the recipe on the back of an opened chocolate chip bag. When the recipe came to putting in the flour, I put in the written amount, which seemed rather small. We finished the recipe and put it in the oven. When my dad took the cookies out of the oven, this is what they looked like:

It turns out that the recipe called for 2 1/4 cups of flour, but the bag of chocolate chips was so perfectly ripped apart so that the 2 was cut off. We only put in 1/4 of a cup. It was a funny disaster I'll never forget.

*laughs* That's awesome, though it probably wasn't at the time. What appeals to you most about baking?

I love seeing how mixing up the ingredients can turn it into something delicious.

To go off the last question, what do you not like about baking?

Cleaning the mess up when I'm done. It always seems like a tornado hit my workstation.

You mentioned that you're writing, what's your novel about?

It's about a girl who goes on a mission on different planet.

A Sci-Fi novel? That's great! Thanks for being willing to participate in this interview. I'm excited to see the new recipes you'll be posting next!

Until next time...
