My favorite things to cook
Love using my wok to cook asian-inspired dishes. I'm a pro at Mexican foods and I'm really getting into Indian and Middle Eastern cuisines.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom was an amazing cook with some wonderful recipes. We didn't eat alot of fast food as kids, and she went the extra mile to make things special for us. I developed a love of food at a young age. I never got into sweets, as a child I just wanted seconds of dinner!
My cooking triumphs
I once successfully fed 20 people on the 4th of July when an unscheduled party "happened" at my place. Nothing pre-prepared nor ready. Add into the mix that I'd been "celebrating" all day-when it was over I was amazed.
My cooking tragedies
Lets see-almost cutting off a finger, grease burns on my arms, a burned pork tenderloin upon meeting what were to be my future in-laws...the list goes on.
