I grew up with a culturally diverse diet. My mom's Chinese, my dad from midwest Canada, and we lived mostly in the NW. I'm an army wife living on the Mexican border now with a hubby from NM, so our cuisine at home varies quite a bit.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking, although I try to hold myself back as I love eating it as well. Since moving to TX, I have also started experimenting a lot more with grilling and all the sides that go along with it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like doing traditional Chinese food, but have also found myself enjoying cooking SW cuisine more and more. My hubby is obsessed with cheese and green chile in EVERYTHING, and I try to accomodate him when I can stand it.
My cooking triumphs
We have friends over several times a week, and the favorite by far is Chinese food. We also have people inviting themselves over whenever they find out I'm baking that day.
My cooking tragedies
I have, in the past, completely forgotten about food on the stove/in the oven only to remember when the smoke alarm goes off. There have been pots thrown away because the burnt on food is REALLY burnt on.
