My name is Wanda and I'm 43 years old,I live in Bentonville,AR I have been married to my best friend for 12 years,I grew up watching my grandmother,mother and when my mom and my step dad were married I would also watch him cook,I didn't start to love cooking until in I would say in my early 20s and then it just grew on me as time went by.
My favorite things to cook
I'm an adventurous person with food and I'm not a picky eater,however, liver,okra,anchovies,head cheese and chitterlings are not in my cards.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love Italian,Chinese,Indian,Greek and Mexican cuisine,but it was mainly Puerto Rican/Caribbean food cooked in my family when I was growing up.
My cooking triumphs
making a tomato based chicken corn chowder with black beans on a bed of white rice,it was a big hit with a lot of people,to think that it was just an experimental dish I concocted out of the blue.
My cooking tragedies
making improvisations on a chicken satay with peanut sauce (a thai dish)
it was a nightmare and disastrous,that,I don't think even the trash can wanted it,yes,it was that bad.
Pizza Hut got called that night.
