I go out to eat more than I should. I'm terrible at composing salads. I've tried and tried, but I do not much care for olives.
My favorite things to cook
adobo, brownies, roast chicken
My favorite family cooking traditions
Traditional Filipino dishes like chicken adobo and menudo.
My cooking triumphs
Katharine Hepburn's brownies -- can now make these with my eyes closed. Or squinting, at least.
My cooking tragedies
A shepherd's pie made with too much butter. Ordinarily, I'd say there is no such thing as too much butter, but this dish actually leaked butter it had so much. Never again!
