Living in Hawaii and (surprise!) wishing I were some where that wasn't an island. I am married to an active duty sailor (a reservist myself). My husband usually leaves the cooking up to me (sometimes I get him to do it) and I'm not always in the mood but I love seeing inspiring recipes on this site. I try to cook healthier things but sometimes tasty things just aren't all that good for you.
My favorite things to cook
I like to keep things simple so anything that doesn't require too much multitasking is a keeper. I also love baking scones and muffins that I try to share with other people.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have a fried rice recipe that I believe my grandma started when they lived in the Philippines. It's so yummy!
My cooking triumphs
every time I make something everybody raves about, I feel good about it. I'll get back to you when I actually try something mildly difficult.
My cooking tragedies
every time I attempt making kabobs they fail somehow.
