About this Cook
I am a flight attendant and love to take as many cooking classes in as many different areas as possible. I like to experiment with all ingredients and no recipe sounds strange to me ... I will try anything!
My favorite things to cook
Indonesian/Asian are my favorites because I find the flavor of the spices so interesting.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with the traditional Polish/Italian foods but when I moved to California my interest in other cultures broadened my cooking practices.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make homemade tamales, mole chicken and finding a recipe for Laksa (Indonesian soup which I absolutely crave). Also entertaining for gatherings including vegans and non vegetarians at the same time.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention but some were recipe related!

Fabulous Wet Burritos
If you like Taco Bell Encharito's served in some areas you will love these. My kids like them and I tolerate them but could not make alot as they don't seem too healthy. Quick and easy and a great recipe for those who love fast food quality food.
