About this Cook
I'm from the US, my husband's from Japan, and we now live in Mexico City, so my cooking style is pretty international to say the least! I'm from the south so I definitely incorporate that into my style as well.
My favorite things to cook
I like baking and also stir fry. I make really good fried rice too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love learning recipes handed down from my grand mother or mother. I think it's interesting to see how we each change it slightly.
My cooking triumphs
I recently cooked thanksgiving dinner for about 10 Japanese (including my husband's boss). It was funny watching the devour a 15 lb. turkey.
My cooking tragedies
Adjusting to the altitude here in Mexico City has definitely resulted in a few disastrous breads or cakes. My temperamental gas oven doesn't help much.

Strawberry Romaine Salad I
I've made this a few times and find it to be a refreshing change from my usual more salty/zesty salads. I often use just spinach as I always have some in my fridge. I find this goes great with most dishes too. I use light mayo and add extra poppy seeds onto the salad in addition to those mixed into the dressing plus I use rice vinegar instead of the white wine vinegar as that's what I have on hand, I think it cuts some of the sweetness out.
