Personal Narrative Essay: Chocolate Chip Cookies

Personal Narrative Essay
Let 's get straight to the point: Raise your hand if you don 't like warm, rich, ooey-gooey chocolate-chip cookies fresh out of the oven! If you don’t then you are a disservice to humanity, but hey, more for me. Chocolate chip cookies have been and always will be my favorite cookie. Even before I started cooking things from scratch, those bricks of Nestle® cookie-dough have always been a treasure in my life. Now, baking and culinary arts in general are my life. I live, eat, and breathe kitchen. I am an advanced baker-in-training, but back then I had just begun understanding the principles of cooking.
Born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky, I was the second oldest of two brothers, with three younger sisters. My father

In general, just seeing food makes me jovial. As a baker-in-training I can say that I truly take pride in my baked goods, as well as anything that is made by my hands. When others try my foods I get a leap of joy. Their smiles are my battery-fuel and their grins of satisfaction are that fully-charged buzz that lets me know I just did a good thing. I just love serving people. There are no words (that aren’t just synonyms) to express how I feel when I please someone other than blissful. Each and every second I’ve spent in the kitchen has given me a true passion for food. So much so that I have even come to enjoy dishes that I used to hate. When I was younger, spinach was my worst enemy. I would literally sit at the table for hours just to be forced to go to bed instead of eating it. Now I absolutely adore spinach: Spinach in salads, canned, in omelets, stuffed in foods, and most unusually; all by itself, with just a touch of Italian dressing. Look at these foods from a different angle, from the perspective that all foods “were created equal” helps me to appreciate the work put into them on a much greater scale. On top of all this, food is my ultimate stress ball. When I get into the kitchen, I am immediately relieved of all other worries, problems, and stresses; I become completely focused on the food. How does it taste? How does it look? Is it the proper texture? Is it cooked to perfection? Most commonly I ask myself, “What else could I do to improve this dish?” sparking a plethora of brainchildren for me to test almost immediately. Even though I can think at a much deeper level, I know I am still not done

    It is a fact, everyone loves food and everyone has their favorite restaurant picked out from all the rest. Several families along with romantic couples use restaurants to gather and discuss life. In my opinion, restaurants are a wonderful privilege that help us get away and relax. The most satisfying restaurant in West Virginia would be Olive Garden because the restaurant is beautifully pristine, the service is extremely pleasant, and the food is absolutely scrumptious. As a child, I was always taught to value cleanliness because not everyone has it, and as a customer of today I do appreciate it greatly.…

    Just thinking about it honestly makes my mouth water and I get so excited because I love it that much. I could eat lasagna at any time of the day but I definitely cannot eat it from anywhere. There are certain places at home I like getting it from specifically, but what I love the most is making it on my own and adding enough of everything I like. I even add my own Hispanic touch to it to make it even better for me. My favorite food will always be lasagna because I haven’t had anything yet that I adore that much, and until I do, it will remain that…

    Knowing there’s another day, life is still taking its course. Every breath that I have taken gives a tingly sensation knowing that I can never buy something as beautiful as oxygen.

    The thought of revelling into an indulgently rich and silky smooth dessert entree of delectable, scrumptious, and irresistible flavors of french vanilla, mint chocolate chip, and rocky road is the most satisfying flavors your taste buds can ever ask for. While I write this essay describing this delicately soft serving food; I can already picture the server, placing each scoop of milky goodness onto a beautifully crafted white circular ceramic bowl. Now, after reminiscing back on that enjoyable moment, I can honestly say that this dessert is truly a delicacy within itself. However, this mouthwatering contraption most definitely needs to be topped off with the sweet smelling aroma of freshly ripe and yellow, peeled fruit placed along the sides; while…
