I don't have any special family recipes. However, I think each food cooked by my mother is special. All people have a dish that remind them of their childhood and of their family that only their parents know how to cook.
It would be fantastic if I started my own business, but I don't think I would be a good entrepreneur. This require vocation.

We don't have any special family recipe. But I would make a picture book with my sister or try to make some special recipe.

No, we do no have any special family recipe. Yes, I would like to open my own bussines, but not one related with food. Food is not my thing.

First, I would like to say that I really admire Fraser. He definitely knows what he is doing and he has a sense of business. I wish there were more teens like him, because it is really a great thing to earn so much money at age of 15. His parents must be proud of him, and his grandma, of course.It is a real life example that you never know what can happen in your life. He was interested in making jam, and now he is making money. Wonderful! Well done, boy!
I have many special family recipes, and the majority of them are grandma's recipes, but she doesn't keep them as a secret. She makes jam too, the most delicious jam in the world, at least I think so. It could compete with Fraser's. She makes it every year, several times-from strawberry-my fave, plum, peaches, whatever, and I admire her talent. I think I have inherited her talent, and I am really happy because of that. I don't know to make jam yet, but after reading this article, I will definitely ask my dear grandma to relieve me all the secrets of her kitchen, and who knows, maybe I will have my own business in a few years. I would like to and it would be awesome!
And grandma is even better in making cakes, and she has already learnt me to make some of them, and it would be cool to be famous for your delicious cakes. Being a teen with a factory is more than a tempting idea!

In our family we don`t have any special recipes. But the idea of starting business sounds interesting, though I`m not sure I`m a good entrepreneur.
