I'm a native Californian from the Bay Area, and moved to Plano, TX in 1997. I love to cook for family and friends and like to try new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Making breakfast tacos for people at work; love to try to make my own version of things I've tasted in restaurants; favorite cuisines are Chinese and Mexican.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Portuguese/Asian dishes during the holidays when family comes to visit.
My cooking triumphs
Being successful at making dishes my grandmother used to make when I was a kid. Grama's recipes only listed ingredients, but not the method of how to cook.
My cooking tragedies
I can't tell you how many times I've almost caught the house on fire forgetting about the garlic bread under the broiler!
