Behind the Scenes
The name of this recipe, The Creamiest Cake, came from when me and my cousins were all at home and trying to bake a cake without a recipe; and when we were trying to combine the ingredients, we got in a fight over whether we needed to add cream to the recipe. We ended up with cream all over our faces. The next time we made it, we started calling it the creamiest cake.

Behind the Scenes
The name Sweet Salad comes from the time when I wanted to try something new; and I ended up making this amazing salad. I was really nervous about having my parents taste my cooking but they said since our super sweet daughter made this it has to be as sweet as she is. When my parents tasted it, they weren’t just being nice; they really enjoyed it and said it tasted as sweet as I was. The next time my parents wanted me to make it , they called it Sulva’s Sweet Salad. ?

I came up with this smoothie when I was trying to recreate the smoothie Pink Starburst from Jamba Juice, a smoothie place in California. I just started to mix a bunch of ingredient together and after many failures I finally got it. I felt so accomplished after that; and I got really interested in the culinary arts.

The name of this smoothie is called Winter Wonderland because my friend and I were bored during winter break; and we got really hungry so we decided to make something easy since we were both culinary challenged. We just added random things to our smoothie, and hoped it would turn out delicious. When we finished making the smoothies, we felt like chefs because it turned out very tasty, and since all great chefs have names for their recipes, we named our smoothie Winter Wonderland because we came up with recipe during winter break.
