Single parent, laid back and carefree personality...with some humor thrown in everyday.
My favorite things to cook
Usually Asian food, though I'm branching off and cooking recipes that family members use to cook during my childhood. Also trying branch out and try cooking food from around the world.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting Christmas care packages of Fudge, Cookies, Fruit Cake, and other goodies that my grandmother made for us. Its something I started to do for friends/family last year (2009) and plan to do it each year now.
My cooking triumphs
My Larp Gai (Thai Chicken Salad) has been a hit for just about everyone that I've made it for so I guess that's a good thing. I've also been lucky that all my Filipino & Korean dishes have been hits too.
My cooking tragedies
Fried Chicken...first time I ever made it when I was in high school it didn't come out at all.
