I'm an English language teacher in Japan, who missed certain foods so much I had to learn how to cook them. With a wife and infant daughter, cooking quickly and healthily has become more important.
My favorite things to cook
Breads, stews, soups, sauces, roasts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up, I always did my homework in the kitchen as my mother cooked. Without knowing it, I learned a lot. Now, I cook like she does - simple, healthy, wholesome foods. Soda breads, stews, soups, roasts.
My cooking triumphs
A special kind of brownie - I must put the recipe on this site.
Cooking Christmas dinner for 6 skeptical Japanese people, and succeeding.
My cooking tragedies
Omelets. I just can't get them right.
