Thank you for visiting my kid-friendly cooking site. My name is Justen Wilson and I am 11 years old. When I was only 5 years old my dream and only dream was to become a chef. When I was 9 I decided that I wanted to be a sous chef. I also learned that there was already a famous chef by the name of Justin Wilson. He specialized in Cajun Cooking and was from Louisiana. Unfortunate for me, I was unable to meet him since he passed away when I was only 4 years old. However, that made me strive even harder to become the type of chef I wanted to be. At the age of 10 I began cooking in the kitchen with my mom and grandmother. There was alot to learn but fortunate for me, I had people to stand behind my dream. I have two books in print entitled, "Jus 10 and Cooking" (biography) and "Jus 10 Time Kid Friendly Recipes" (Cookbook) I hope each of you pick up a copy or two or pre-order your copy before March 2009, when it is scheduled to be released.
My mom once asked me if cooking was just a hobby that I wanted to do. My answer to her was that a hobby is something people like to do just to pass time. I told her that I wanted cooking to be my career.
Regardless of why you decided to visit my site, I hope you enjoy it and I encourage you to take advantage of the many kid friendly recipes (some of them are not just for the kids sake). Age is nothing but a number, especially when it comes to living your dreams. Celebrate life and Enjoy it with food!
