Steffy doesn’t know who she’s supposed to be or where she belongs. In the midst of all this inner turmoil, Steffy's teacher wants her to write an autobiography and get letters from others in her life on their perception of her. Everything seems to be falling apart, except cooking. Steffy decides to try out for a children’s cooking competition, and when she makes it, it seems that everything might be coming back together. But alas, everything doesn’t end up as perfectly as a well-cooked meal. But when her aunt and husband decide to adopt her and her sister, Steffy realizes that maybe her life is not the classic perfect tale, but she does have a family, and her family is home.
