I used to make yogurt dessert when I was little. More precisely, it was a dessert like semolina-free revani. Everyone in the house ate adoringly. I would also be happy because everyone liked it. I think I cut the recipe from a newspaper. I memorized it later, of course, by doing it. Naturally, I don't have any recipes left. There was a cookbook at home that only came with the emsan cookware (I think it still does). It was a book, printed on glossy paper, with quality photographs. The photographs looked so vivid and beautiful that I would occasionally take them in my hand and examine each recipe and photograph for minutes. All this happens when I was in elementary school, by the way. I don't remember when I cooked for the first time, but in primary school I had recipes that I could make better than everyone around me, such as yogurt dessert. Thanks to my mother, she never interfered with my work, nor did she show me an attitude like you can't handle it. On the contrary, they would encourage me by praising even the dishes I made badly.
One of my favorite recipes was raisin cake. One day, I said to myself, what would it be like if I made this with fresh grapes? I think that it will be very tasty when you will have juicy bites in your mouth. I whipped the cake immediately, threw the grapes into it, and put it in the oven. When it was nicely browned, I took it out of the oven in case it was cooked. I tried to cut a slice so that all of the grapes sank to the bottom of the cake :) Naturally, the bottom was not cooked properly. Of course, at that time, I did not know about things like flouring the ingredients for the cake. I'm at the most basic stage of cooking.
Even though the bottom was raw, that cake was eaten to the last slice. Maybe if someone had said something bad that day, cooking would have been out of my life forever. Even though it didn't affect me badly, it gave me a strong trauma that I still haven't forgotten. But tell me how not to live. At that time, I was so popular that even the neighbors invite me to make cakes when guests come. At such a time when we are at the top, such a failure would shake anyone :)
No one is born a professional from their mother's womb. Everything is learned over time. In this learning process, we either succeed or hit the bottom of failure. The important thing is that these failures do not grab our feet and make us count where we are. Let's make and eat the revani, it's really good :)
