I've learned the majority of my favorite recipes from friends with different ethnic backgrounds. I proud to have expanded my repertoire so much and get a real sense of satisfaction when someone asks for one of my recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I am best at appetizers and am thrilled to pass on my recipes. Lately, I have been trying more difficult asian dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom was a big 'comfort food' cook. I learned how to make most of her dishes as a little girl through directions given to me over the phone while she was still at work! One of my favorites that she taught me to make is a one skillet fried potato, onion and keilbasa dinner. Too artery-clogging for frequent use, but so good.
My cooking triumphs
I grill a mean asian flank steak and am super proud that my Buffalo Chicken Dip has done so well on the site!
My cooking tragedies
I cannot bake a lasagna that doesn't collapse all over the plate. My father, on the other hand, makes a mile high, tasty lasagna that is humbling to look at.
