About Me
I'm 20 something American expat currently living in North Japan. I cooked often when I was at home in the states, but have faced many challenges becoming familiar with Japanese ingredients.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to make are Asian, Mexican, and Indian dishes. I am also quite fond of slow cook meats!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family comes from the south, so we have a lot of southern and soul food influences.
My cooking triumphs
I love curries and I tend to make pretty good ones. No measuring involved, just throw some stuff in a pot and taste!
My cooking tragedies
Pretty much anything I bake turns out kind of questionable. I much more of a cook then a baker! Although I do make a mean carrot cake!
