Spent many years in Iowa and also two years in China. Also make jewelry. Check out my site at www.shanghaitai.com
My favorite things to cook
Chicken and cashews, chicken fried rice, fruit smoothies (not really cooking, I know), beef tips and gravy, lumpia,
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving dinner, of course!
My cooking triumphs
Learning how to cook beef tips and gravy so we don't have to buy large quantities from the Schwans man.
My cooking tragedies
Cooked a goose too long one time. Even though it was supposed to cook that long it was pretty well ruined (ouch!)
