About this Cook
Self-taught cook who learned by watching hours of cooking shows on t.v. and then trying to replicate what I saw in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Everything. Lately, I'm obsessed with making granola.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's fried rice and chicken n' dumplings.
My cooking triumphs
The very first turkey I ever made actually came out terrific. I studied all of the articles here on allrecipes, first.. and that turned out to be a smart investment.
My cooking tragedies
I once substituted salt for sugar in a cinnamon roll recipe. The bottle was not labled and I thought it was sugar. After watching a cooking show, I made the most perfect cinnamon rolls. They were beautiful.. But that first bite was tragic! Needless to say, they ended up in the trash. I also once forgot to add sugar to a homemade pumpkin pie I made from scratch, from an actual pumpkin. What a very sad, bland and tasteless moment that was.

Rosy Radishes
I just LOVE these tasty and addictive little critters. I put them on just about everything: scrambled eggs, cheese pizza, tuna fish sandwiches... It's true, you do need a specific palette to appreciate these babies. If you are fond of some of the more undervalued asian flavors, like kimchi for example, then you should most certainly enjoy this recipe. The only thing I did differently was that I did not heat any of the ingredients. I just sliced the radishes and added them to the jar raw and poured the room temperature liquid over top. This way they retained most of their crispness, as well as any vitamins and minerals that may have been lost during the heating process. Although, it will take more like three days to reach peak flavor if you pickle them raw. If you want to cut some of the salty flavor, you could always add a little sugar (about 1/3 teaspoon). If you add sugar, you will need to heat the water enough for the sugar to dissolve before you pour it into the jar. I am not sure how long these will last in the fridge because I seem to empty a jar by myself in about two weeks or less.
