  One of my favorite desert drinks is a milkshake. They have so many differnt kinds and flavors that if you try one flavor you can't just say you don't like milkshakes, you have to try many other flavors to varify that you don't like them. The three most popular flavors are chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla. Personally my favorite kind is chocolate but sometimes extra flavors are sold/ made too. Many times whipped cream with a cherry on top is what you'lle find on top of a milkshake. Milkshakes aere super easy to make, all you need is chocolate syrup, ice cream ( vanilla or chocolate), milk, and a blender to make a chocolate milkshake. Here is a recipe and directions on how to make a chocolate milkshake.


  • 3 scoops chocolate ice cream
  • chocolate syrup
  • 1/2 cup of milk


In blender combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour into glass and serve.

Apples are a nutritious source of food. They come in many shapes, colors, and sizes. My favorite kind of fruit is an apple. Personally, I think that the best kind of apple is Fuji because they are not to sweet, sour, or bitter. They have the perfect taste for an apple. Washington is famous for their apples. Actually eastern Washington is famous for their apples because of the climate. Apples grow best in cold climates. Whereas oranges grow best in warmer climates. That is why Arizona is famous for their oranges. You can purchase apples at any local food market or deli.

Egg Rolls

Egg Rolls!!
  Egg rolls are a delicious Chinese meal that many restaurants serve. There are many different types of egg rolls, such as spring rolls, vegetarian rolls, beef rolls, chicken rolls, and that's all I know of for sure. An egg roll is a thin egg-dough casing filled with minced vegetables and often bits of meat (as shrimp or chicken) and usually deep-fried. Many times when egg rolls are e on how to make served they come with soy sauce. As a desert for many Chinese restaurants there are often served fortune cookies. Here is a recipe on how t make an egg roll......
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 quart peanut oil for frying
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 2 ounces shredded carrots
  • 8 (7 inch square) egg roll wrappers
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds (optional)


  1. Season pork with ginger and garlic powder and mix thoroughly. Heat mixture in a medium skillet, stirring, until pork is cooked through and no longer pink. Set aside.
  2. In another large skillet heat oil to about 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) or medium high heat. While oil is heating, combine flour and water in a bowl until they form a paste. In a separate bowl combine the cabbage, carrots and reserved pork mixture. Mix all together.
  3. Lay out one egg roll skin with a corner pointed toward you. Place about a 1/4 to 1/3 cup of the cabbage, carrot and pork mixture on egg roll paper and fold corner up over the mixture. Fold left and right corners toward the center and continue to roll. Brush a bit of the flour paste on the final corner to help seal the egg roll.
  4. Place egg rolls into heated oil and fry, turning occasionally, until golden brown. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels or rack. Put on serving plate and top with sesame seeds if desired.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

My Recipe!!! I have created my very own recipe for cookies!!These cookies are just like peanut butter cookies except they have chunks of dark chocolate in them. They are now officially my favorite kind of cookie!!
I created this recipe last night, I was making some peanut butter cookies when my mom suggested I add chocolate to the. So, I got two bars of Hershey's Dark Chocolate and chopped them up into chunks and tossed them in the batter. Surprisingly the cookies actually turned out pretty well.
For my Demonstration Speech at school my mom and I packed up the stuff I needed and I went to school the next day. I did my presentation and I was so proud of myself when I finished. I hope I aced it!! I am not going to give you my recipe because I want it to be a secret homemade recipe. But to see some cookies that look similar to my batch here is a picture...
