I've been making a Pumpkin Oatmeal Casserole for nearly a year now. I have always wanted to change a few ingredients to make this taste more like an apple pie and this morning I did just that. I substituted applesauce for the pumpkin puree, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon for the pumpkin pie spice… MORE

I've been in search of a good meatloaf recipe for quite sometime. I've tasted great meat loaf recipes at many restaurants, but making a tasty loaf always eluded me. I knew that a good recipe had beef, pork and veal and so I purchased these ground meats and searched for a recipe. Ina Garten… MORE

Watched this episode about healthy lo cal breakfasts on the Food Network while getting dressed. I want to remember these recipes and include them in my rotations. I like the fact that she uses almond milk and egg whites or egg substitutes. I did learn from a chef, however, that even though… MORE

Farmers' Market in Anchorage is in full swing with colorful plants and vegetables. I think I probably overbought for two people, but I've managed to use some of the veggies as a centerpiece while they wait to be eaten.  My first meal from this produce was salad with a simple potato salad. I… MORE

I'm supposed to be working on our Christmas letter, but as you can see I've gotten sidetracked. Yesterday I was doing some Christmas shopping at the 5th Ave. mall and had lunch at Nordstroms. On the menu was some Hoisin Braised Short Ribs served with an Arugula Salad and mashed yellow squash.… MORE

About Me
I grew up in Hawaii and lived for a time in Japan. After my marriage my husband was stationed in Germany where we travelled a lot and were exposed to different cuisines. My mother also tried new dishes that she read about in magazines. Dishes like lasagne and beef stroganoff were introduced to our family and we all learned to try new cuisines.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are Chinese and Japanese dishes although I seldom make them as they are time consuming. I have become more intrested in healthier foods as I grow older. One of my favorites are roasted vegetables, unusual salad combinations and grilling meats. The internet and food tv shows enable me to broaden my horizons in the kitchen. My husband says that we never have the same dish twice. I'm always trying something new.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like to make fried rice out of leftover rice and a few dishes such as beef broccoli or steamed fish. I also like island favorites like somen salad, Chinese gau, won tons, spam musube.
My cooking triumphs
I made a dinner from Alan Wong's cookbook:Deep-Fried Won Ton Brie with Fresh Pineapple Marmalade, Lemon Shrimp Salad (Hugh Carpenter), Pork Tenderloin Medallions with Gingered Sweet Potatoes and Pineapple Macadamia Nut Relish, Mango Ice Cream Sandwish with Macadamia Nut Cookies and Tropical Fruit Compote (Roy Yamaguchi).
My cooking tragedies
Two weeks ago Chocolate Cheesecake from Diabetes Forecast Magazine. Awful! I'd rather have the real deal and have only a teaspoon or two.
