My cooking skills are lacking severely, they would make the even the most wretched chef criticize my bad baking attempts. But looking back on my childhood, you would not think this would be the case. You could usually find me sitting on the counter next to my moms mixing bowl, adding and mixing the ingredients that always turned out to be delicious. When I was younger, cooking was always associated with the holidays, which was the prime time for me to mix chocolate with various other gooey ingredients, and with the help of my mother, create a delicious dessert. The most memorable dessert of the holiday season was the chocolate lava cookies which we used to make every year.
