Love to feed people.
Will feed people at will.
Party planner extraordinare.
I don't measure...anything.
Nothing ever turns out the same (see the previous point).
Want to teach folks how to cook...but especially how to/where to buy supplies/groceries.
Kitchen gadgets and little tricks float my boat.
If you're coming over for a meal @ my house, be prepared to be a sous chef.
If I cook, you gotta clean up.
A flare for ethnic foods...and doctoring up "normal" fare.
It's all about the flavor and then the visual.
I make stuff up as I go.
My Mom won't write down her Korean food recipes for me...they're just in her head! At least she gives me play-by-play instructions...even though a ballpark on the quantities of ingredients would be nice.
My favorite things to cook
Everything! I'm growing in my ability to bake because exact measurements are hard to remember, but necessary.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only traditional American holiday we ever did do up was Thanksgiving dinner. Even now - as a single woman living on her own in a different town than her family, I still surround myself with people and do up a traditional Thanksgiving meal real good.
My cooking triumphs
I went from inviting friends over for dinner, to hosting parties, to catering events and teaching folks to cook, and now in a new town and learning how to be creative with a humble budget.
My cooking tragedies
Not timing the start of making which dishes when...and seeing some things get cold while still working on other dishes, as your guests wait to eat. Sucks big time. So - I learned how to create, plan, and time out everything in a timely fashion.
