Am just hoping that my dad's metabolism is strong in my DNA as I head into middle age! I like food way too much. :)
My favorite things to cook
Anything that tastes awesome, from kielbasa and cabbage to samosas, chile rellenos to creme brulee - you name it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sushi rolling. Prime rib roast for Christmas. Sausage gravy, scrambled eggs, and biscuits. Putting up cooked corn (years ago). Baking bread or cookies. Making steamed monju.
My cooking triumphs
Full Indian dinner of Pakoras,Saag Paneer,Murgh Kari,Gobi Masala,Dal, and Kheer.
And the first time I made Chirashi sushi and Seseame Seared Ahi all of it was awesome!
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make chicken florentine from a recipe here, but I added hashbrown to the bottom of the dish - bad idea (they were hand-grated and stayed raw)!!!
