Hello! I’m Deanna, and welcome to DB and Jelly.
I’m 15 years old (now 17!) and I absolutely love cooking and baking. The kitchen is my place to create, experiment, and play with food for anyone who wants to eat. When you cook, all the flavors, textures, and colors of are up to you, and you have the freedom to explore the kitchen any way you want.
I started baking as soon as my mom let me into the kitchen, quickly graduating from “cooking water” in 6 different bowls to helping make everything from chocolate chip cookies to Thanksgiving dinner. My parents love having kids who can cook (this includes my little brother and sister), because they never know when they’ll walk in and find dinner or dessert sitting on the counter. Seriously, who doesn’t love surprise brownies?
When I’m not in the kitchen, I absolutely love gymnastics! I compete for a local club team, and am also the co-captain of our high school team. I still spend most of my non-baking time in the gym working on all kinds of insanely fun flips, jumps, and spins.
I also play the viola in my school orchestra and chamber orchestra, as well as the local youth symphony, and I attempt to sew things in any remaining spare time 🙂
Ready? Put on your apron and let’s start the adventure!
