I'm a storyboard artist, a comic book artist, an animator, a mommy of two young boys, a wife, a house builder/renovator, a cook, a bread-machine enthusiast, a slow-cooker experimentator, a wok militant and a sushi lover. I mix a mean drink, too. Also, I used to be a lead singer in a band... I hope to get back to that at some point.
My favorite things to cook
I absolutely love cooking with the wok, so anything stir-fry goes, even if it's nowhere near Asian in flavour. Also, as I stated above, I'm a bread machine enthusiast. I registered on this site mostly for the bread recipes, and I'm staying because of the daily recipe mailings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I both like to cook, so it will happen every once in a while that we'll team up to prepare a meal. For example, I'll prepare the side dishes to his main course, or I'll make the sauce/gravy from his meat preparation, or he'll make an appetizer to preceed my entrée... The kids are little still, but they are showing interest and I'm fully planning on including them in meal preparation when they are ready.
My cooking triumphs
I will always remember the absolutely insanely good turkey my husband made a few years ago... and I'll remember everything I made to accompany it turned out delicious.
... then again, I also get great satisfaction in getting everything cooked at the same time for breakfast...
My cooking tragedies
I am INCAPABLE of flipping an eg without breaking the yolk. Okay, that's an exageration, and I know it's all just practice, but I still get frustrated by the fact that I can't flip an egg.
I haven't had that many tragedies, really. I burned stuff once in a while, but nothing rendering the food unpalatable.
