I’ve always enjoyed experimenting in the kitchen. There used to be a TV show that was called something like “Just Like Mom” where kids would “cook” by making up recipes the way they thought they should be. It was a funny show – ketchup was used in cookies more often than you would think.
In middle school I started experimenting with both different flavor profiles as well as ingredient substitution. One of my first attempts at creating something different was with fruit muffins. I tried different juices in place of the other liquids in muffin mixes to see if I could amp up the flavor. For example, cranberry and blueberry muffins had cranberry juice mixed in. From there I learned that flavored liquids could really change the overall taste of whatever I was making.
