I LOVE TO COOK! My dad was an incredible example, making dishes without exact measurements and always turning out FABULOUS! I loved the kitchen so much that I did Pampered Chef Kitchen Shows for 8 years. Now, I'm just a mom teaching my children the joys and wonderful world of cooking great food.
My favorite things to cook
Japanese cousine, Mexican cousine . . . wow - I can't possible narrow down the list.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Authentic Japanese for birthday celebrations
My cooking triumphs
The most decadent, sinfully delicious Cinnamon Rolls (which I am submitting), My Hearty Minestrone Soup, My dad's own recipe of Pancakes *YUMMY!* and his Japanese Dishes (including an authentic Terriyaki sauce, I have not found a recipe yet that even comes close to it.)
My cooking tragedies
I made a pot pie (when I was newly married (2 years) with a baby girl (now she's 8.) I wanted to put garlic into the pot pie and forgot, so I put it into the crust instead - -BIG MISTAKE, HUGE!! I ruined my husband on once an excellent recipe, he just cannot look, smell, or eat it ever since.
