Check Out My Hat
I love cooking. In fact, I have always loved cooking.
When I was a teenager, during that last summer before I became old enough to work, I took advantage of a quiet period left by having outgrown playing as I had during previous summers. So I spent many afternoons baking.
I taught myself to make cookies, squares, cakes. I even remember making soft caramel candies that I had cooked up from scratch with sugar, butter, cream… I recall them being very delicious, but of course, I could be reconstituting this memory to suit my narrative.
Regardless, I love cooking and these aren’t just caramel-coated words.
