LIMA — Khadijah White grew up watching her grandmother and aunts get together and make big family meals, and she was always in awe.
"They didn't have to measure or nothing," she said of the recipes they had prepared so many times they just knew.
And now, White can say the same for herself.
When she shared today's chocolate chip cookie recipe, White didn't have to consult a thing. She has this recipe in her head.
"I made them so many times ... that I remember the whole thing," she said, smiling.
White, a senior, is a culinary arts student at Lima Senior High School. She decided to try it because she has a habit of watching cooking shows on TV.
"I watch the cooking channels all the time at home, so I took this class," she said.
White really enjoys the hands-on learning the course offers, where she can learn about different utensils and techniques by experiencing them.
"We actually got to do it instead of reading about it or watching it on a video," White said.
As for the cookies she shares today, they're her favorite.
"They’re crunchy on the outside but soft in the middle," she said.
