I am a 6'1" 200 lb. Korean-American. I didn't get this way for no reason. I eat just about anything. I also like to try to make what I've eaten, so I experiment a lot in the kitchen. Recently, I decided to eat healthier, which isn't really a problem, since I enjoy most foods that I eat.
My favorite things to cook
Curry. There are many ways to vary it, and it tastes great. It also makes for a simple meal, since I can just put it over rice. Now just add a side dish or a salad, and ta-dah! Dinner's served.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Low sodium. It doesn't seem much like tradition as it is a dietary habit, but because of my mom's blood pressure, foods had to use less salt. As a result, other flavors had to make up for the lack in salt.
My cooking triumphs
Spaghetti. It was a welcoming dish for a new friend who had just come to the United States. I had garlic, onions, tomatoes, meat, and pasta, and an Italian herbs in a grinder. We were cooking at his house, but there was almost no cookware. It still turned out delicious, and good times were had by all.
My cooking tragedies
I had a friend over, but had nothing planned. I used canned foods to make a black bean chili over rice. Unfortunately, he was not used to American foods yet.
