I am living in Jingzhou, China working with my husband. I teach English to college students and in my spare time I cook. There aren't a lot of other things to do in this little town in China. So I try to find as many ways a possible to create great dishes without the modern conveniences that the United States has to offer.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook soups! I love to find new soups recipes and try them out!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was the kind of cook that rotated the few dishes she knew how to cook throughout the month. So I just enjoyed the many, many spaghetti nights, taco nights, fried rice nights and breakfast nights. I have tried to create a better selection for my husband and I.
My cooking triumphs
My soups. Mocha cheesecakes and Cinnamon Rolls.
My cooking tragedies
Bagels. I tried to make them one time and they turned out to be horrible. Maybe try again some day.
