About this Cook
Mom of 4 living in Japan.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking desserts like cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We make sushi on birthdays or new years eve. My husband is Japanese so we don't really have stereotype holiday meals. I do however try to make turkey & stuffing for Christmas. The kids hate the stuffing but DH devours it. Another tradition is making pizza.
My cooking triumphs
Pumpkin pie, cookies, carrot cake with creamcheese frosting, Japanese chicken & egg dish, other Japanese foods.
My cooking tragedies
Thai curry (I just couldn't find all the ingr. so had to sub), made cornbead from this site but the kids hated it.

Pastry Cream
Wonderful & easy. I feel like a chef. I've always been scared of trying a custard because of lumps, but this came out very smooth & tasty. Thanks for sharing!!

Granny's Mahogany Cake and Frosting
My kids & I loved this cake. It was not dry & the frosting was the best. Couldn't really taste the coffee in the cake, & the chocolate flavor was mild but there was a "subtle" difference compared to most cakes. The kids asked for seconds.

I don't know why but these just came out all right for me, not exceptional.
