Kentucky Elementary School Student Shares Her Hilarious Recipe for Pasta
"The apple doesn't fall far from the tree."- Katie Lowe
That's how Katie describers her daughter, Blakely Allen. I mean, look at these two.
There's no doubt that Katie and her daughter are two peas in a pod, but that's even more evident in the kitchen. Katie freely admits that she's "no cook, by any means" and apparently that trait has been passed right along to Blakely, who recently had the chance to share her culinary skills (or lack of them) with her class at Wayland Alexander in Ohio County, Kentucky.
For a class project, Blakely shared her recipe for pasta. See, Blakely's class is making a recipe book and she chose to share a recipe for pasta. Katie says, "Which doesn't surprise me. She will get into our pantry and eat dry noodles out of the box."
Now, pasta is perhaps one of the simplest dishes in the world to make, but Blakely's recipe included some advice that no one, even her kitchen-challenged mother, saw coming.
Blakely's advice? To take the paper off. Wait! What?
Now, I am not exactly sure what "paper" she's referring to, but I am also a bit concerned about the cooking time she allotted for her dish. Now, I love a good "al dente" pasta as much as the next wannabe Italian, but three minutes? That's going to be some crunchy spaghetti, even if her momma bought angel hair.
And I am also a touch concerned that Blakely says her pasta tastes like pizza. Again. Wait! What? Maybe Katie really can't cook. What has the child been fed for the first four years of her life??
Here's Blakely's radio interview about her recipe!
Here are some other fun recipes from Blakely's classmates. You'll see everything from questionable pizza and "gas station" turkey recipes to instructions on how to make a Oreo Cake that's not "yucky"!
