I'm a married mom of two, living in Nevada.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite food is Thai. My husband's is Vietnamese. My daughter's is Japanese, and my son's is Chinese. We throw in a little Indian and Mexican, and once in awhile do something traditionally American. Oh yeah, and my husband loves to bring my homemade bread to work.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up on a farm in rural Idaho, I learned how to cook everything from scratch, right out of the garden. But I learned nothing about international cooking. That all had to come later, when I was out on my own.
My cooking triumphs
My husband needs low cholesterol and as few processed carbohydrates as possible. My kids are gluten-free. I could live off of veggies. Somewhere in the middle, we meet for some rather tasty dinners.
My cooking tragedies
Phyllo dough is evil. Pure evil.
