I am currently living in Asia which makes finding western products difficult at times, and if I can find them they are way over priced.
My favorite things to cook
I love making homemade pizzas. This began when as a child I would stay at my aunts home for a weekend and we would make one together and watch a movie. It is a fun way to include many people in the process and share life together.
My favorite family cooking traditions
making massive amounts of cookies, breads and candies at Christmas for friends, family, & teachers at school.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook from scratch! This Thanksgiving and Christmas I made my first pie doughs. I have learned to make many doughs, cookies, and cakes from scratch and now working on english muffins.
My cooking tragedies
Cookies are my enemy. I always seem to forget about them in the oven and usually come out a little on the crunchy side. My husband likes crunchier cookies so I guess it isn't too bad.
