About Carlina Will

Hello and welcome to “Cooking with Carlina!” And if you haven’t guessed it, I’m Carlina! I want to take some time to tell all of you a little bit about myself. I was born in Melbourne, Florida but spent the majority of my life growing up in Jacksonville, Florida. Growing up I was always in the kitchen with my mom whether we were baking cookies for school or creating a barbie cake for a friend’s birthday. Baking was one of the ways we would spend time together. I started baking when I was 7 years old and immediately fell in love with it. Everyone at school enjoyed my sweet treats when I would bring them in. I started cooking a bit later in life around 16 or 17. I got tired of eating school lunches so I would just cook my meals at night and take them to school. I was really able to experiment in the kitchen when I went to college at The University of Florida. Go Gators! My friends would come over for my parties and I would cook all of the food instead of ordering pizza. Trust me they didn’t complain. Haha! I love cooking because I believe that food is happiness and it brings people together which is what makes me happy. I want my viewers to know that I have decided to post my recipes because so many young people are on the go and I want to show them a quick and easy way to create their favorite meals. I’m always creating fun and new recipes for you to try and if you have any recipes you want to share with me feel free to leave me a comment on my Instagram or Facebook pages. I look forward to embarking on this journey with you guys, so let’s cook! :)
