About this Cook
I am Bangladeshi-American(Indian). My willingness to cook came when probably like many other Indian girls raised here but married abroad, hubby would only want to eat Indian. I wanted to eat different cuisines but didn't want to dine without my husband. Now I love to cook and bake. My husband and kids don't want to be my guinea pigs anymore. Now I've recruited siblings, their kids and their friends, my friends and their kids as tasters.
My favorite things to cook
Seafood. It offers a great variety.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Very Indian with some Italian. Thai and Mexican are very close contenders.
My cooking triumphs
very time a dish comes out is a triumph for me. But FLAN is the absolute best. After many many years and failures I've finally masterd it.
My cooking tragedies
I have many. Most recent is creamy asparagus soup. I read many recipes but didn't find exactly what I was looking for so I decided to combine some of the ideas and add my own. Everything was wonderful, the smell in the kitchen was very aromatic. Then I added milk and cheese to the soup. The cheese made the milk curdle into ricotta. When I tried to reduce volume by boiling the soup the ricotta toughened. It went into the garbage disposal.

Cajun Spice Mix
Wanting to make cajun potatoes on day my daughter realized we were out of the commercial jar of Cajun seasoning we had on hand. Not to be defeated by my lack of stock, I searched this sight for a spice mix. Lo and behold, this is the one for us. We had all the ingredients in the cupboard. I give it five stars just because the recipe is so easy to put together. My daughter who is learning the joy of putting ingredients together to make something better than take away was very impressed with the ease and the taste as well. Thank you, Bobbie Jean.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style
I love me some rotisserie chicken. This is the second time I made this. It's absolutely marvelous. I left the marinaded chicken in the fridge for over 36 hours and baked it at 250 for 4.5 hours. Baked some herbed baby potatoes and carrots. Made basmati and vegetable rice in the rice cooker and had wonderful Mother's Day brunch.

Buttermilk Mango-Berry Crumb Cake
I was looking for a recipe to use up some of the buttermilk I have. After looking over many, this is the one that made my mouth water so I had to make it. And everything was in my fridge, freezer, pantry or fruit bowl. I used frozen raspberries. This is crazy good. I'm taking the rest of it to my sisters house for cinco de mayo gathering. Thank you Naples.....for this recipe.
