About this Cook
I realized that I like cooking when I was about 15. I really got into it when i got out of the military and became a stay at home wife...I had the freedom to spend a lot of time with ingredients and preparation.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking asian influenced food being that i live in Japan. M I love cooking mexican food because I love all the fresh and fun produce that is used. I have a little bit of Italian in my heritage so naturally I love cooking Italian food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being that my roots are Italian, I do a bit of Italian dishes that are old family recipes. I cook something different for my husband every night of the week...of course his favorite dishes are cooked several times a month :)
My cooking triumphs
I consider every one of my dishes a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
One of my flaws is that I don't usually cook with ingredients that I am unfamiliar with...if I do I reserach it a bit first. So as far as I can say I have not really had an cooking tragedies. However if I stepped out of my comfort box, I am sure I would encounter a tragedy of some sort.

I substuited all the vegetables with fresh some yellow, green bell pepper, and a red onion, with cherry tomotoes (I love a colorful meal:) and it was amazing!! I will definitely make this on a regular basis.
