About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
New Year's Day. My family is Japanese and we all get together and have a day long celebration of eating good food and hanging out.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving. This year (2007) was my first time at making Thanksgiving dinner. Since my husband and I are in CA and our families live down south, we were on our own. I invited some neighbors and friends and made a traditional dinner... turkey, potatoes, pie. Thanks to my mom and the recipes here, my dinner came out perfect. Everything was great... Although my potatoes were a little cold. Anyhow, it was really theraputic for me to make this meal and have it come off without a real hitch. Maybe I can cook after all!!!

Penne with Chicken and Asparagus
This was incredible... I tweaked the recipe a little though. I took a head of garlic and cut it in half. drizzled some olive oil on it and wrapped it in foil. I baked this in the oven for 30 min at 400 degrees. I then took this out and used the olive oil from the foil to cook the chicken in. I removed the cloves of garlic and mashed them up (after roasting they are tender and easily mash). i put about 3 cloves with the chicken instead of any garlic powder. I used about 1/3 - 1/2 of the remaining garlic mush in the garlic and chicken broth sauce (made extra of the sauce). didnt use any garlic powder at all. after making the pasta i added the asperagus and chicken on it without adding the sauce. I then let family decide how much sauce they wanted on it (some like heavier sauce than others). Also added sauted mushrooms to top it off with. Overall an amazing meal!

Italian Vegetable Soup
This was incredibly good... I took out the beans and corn because I don't like them... switched spinach in for cabbage, added two cans V8 juice, and cooked the macaroni seperately- adding it at the end. It was amazing, especially with French bread. Definitely will make again. Easy and perfect for freezing in small lunch containers.

Fresh Herb Dinner Rolls
They were a bit hard and more like scones then soft rolls. However, they had great flavor.
