I decided I would learn to cook while in the Peace Corps. So I'm here, and learning. My supplies are limited and my oven practically doesn't work. I do have a supermarket in a city 20 minutes from my house, so I can get some good stuff, but I'm always finding recipes that call for feta or something like that that I can't get here. It depresses me. Also, I miss sushi terribly.
My favorite things to cook
Basil eggplant, Aloo Phujia, and fried rice are my specialities. Those are just recipes that I found where I could get all the ingredients. I don't really like cooking meat, but I'll eat it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hot Pockets fam. However, there were those pancake sundays...
My cooking triumphs
Just today I cooked lasagna for 6!
My cooking tragedies
Everything for the last 25 years.
