LIMA Alex Moores mother may soon be crying the blues.

She says shes going to be lost when I go off to college, he said, explaining he does most of the cooking for the family.

Moore is a senior at Lima Senior High School, and hes in his second year of the culinary program there. Its a program his older brother also took, so he decided to give it try, he said.

Its always interested me, Moore said of the culinary arts. I tried it out, and it was just something that I was naturally good at.

He is studying up on his basic skills that he feels will give him a good start for culinary school. Hes interested in a few schools out of state but hasnt decided yet.

Someday, I want to own my own restaurant and be a head chef, Moore said.

The recipe he shares today had its start at school last year. His assignment was to make dishes for several different courses. Moore remembers searching the internet for ideas, and he came across several recipes for chicken alfredo. The heavy cream called for wasnt in the schools pantry, but he had an idea for a substitute.

I had cream cheese, so I thought Id try that, he said. Its been a hit ever since.

Moores favorite part about food?

Its a good way to express yourself. It can really change your mood a good meal can really change your day.
