Lauren started cooking when she was about 3 years old. "I was cooking with my grandma," she said. Lauren doesn't spend too much time in the kitchen, but she enjoys making desserts.

This is the recipe she entered in the Pillsbury Kids' Bake-Off. She made up the recipe herself. Although she was nervous during the contest, she said it was a lot of fun.

Lauren shared a couple of tips for other kids who would like to cook. "Have fun cooking," she said, "and don't forget to wash your hands before you start."
