I live in Ventura with my wonderful husband and love to cook for my friends and family...my sisters are my biggest fans and my biggest challenge is making something my husband likes
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are savory appetizers and main dishes. I love complicated dishes and spending all day in the kitchen.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents are both excellent, experimental cooks. Lumpias are a family favorite and my favorite guilty pleasure(they are fried)
My cooking triumphs
I make a great Thanksgiving dinner! (the stuffing is a recipe I stole from my sister, Jasmine)
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list. My latest was a recipe I put together that involved wine poached pears, homemade sausage and braised cabbage all stuffed inside some homemade bread- it was awful!
