Words that can describe me: kooky, controlling, fun, spontaneous, efficient, procrastinating, constantly changing, caring.
I love cooking, watching TV, reading, playing games, hanging out with friends, having parties, and going to the beach.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking and cooking more homestyle type foods. I love Southern food! I am constantly in search of the good fried chicken and buffalo wing recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom usually cooks Korean food for me when I go home to visit. We make kim baps (they are Korean rolls) and mandu (Korean dumplings). The mandu are traditional to make for the new year.
Since I got married, my husband's mom fixes all kinds of yummy food at the holidays including fried cauliflower and a dozen different cookies.
My cooking triumphs
I made my first delicious standing rib roast using the Barefoot Contessa method and my friend who was over for dinner declared it was better than the prime rib she had at a local Lawry's-owned restaurant. Not my recipe, but it worked!
My cooking tragedies
I made a turkey for Thanksgiving and only figured out three days later (when picking the carcass for leftovers) that I didn't take the giblets out! They were hiding under the neck flap! Who knew??
