I am a college student attending Purdue. I study computer information system and programming. I love cooking, but my love of computers made me steer away from culinary school. Well, and the fact I would not be able to cook what I want. I am a very picky eater.
My favorite things to cook
My best dish is my homemade alfredo, but I love to dabble in turning traditional comfort foods into vegan versions. I also love cooking Asian foods. Japanese is usually my preference since I grew up on it due to my heritage. I am still learning some dishes, but I am trying new things everyday.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and I have some Japanese dishes we eat. One of my favorite things to put on steamed rice is furikake. A very comforting food for me is ochazuke nori. It reminds me of being home.
My cooking triumphs
I'm a very adept baker. I have yet to find a cookie I can't bake!
My cooking tragedies
I don't know how many times I have set things on fire in microwaves. Some microwaves have their wattages sky high and it does not take much to fill the kitchen with smoke. The worst time was when my microwave timer broke, and it cooked the food in it until flames were coming out. Never buy a cheap microwave!!!
