I'm happa. My mom is a caucasiana and my dad is Korean. We ate a lot of Korean food growing up in addition to Americanized versions of French, Italian, Indian, and Mexican food.
My favorite things to cook
Some of my favorite things to make are soups, salads, noodle dishes, bagels, one-pot easy recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Contributing my own vegetarian version of a traditional Korean dish, Chap'che for Chinese New Years celebration.
My cooking triumphs
I made 4 pies for thanksgiving at age 10. That seriously impressed my mom. At 11, I made a loaf of Turtle Bread that was made up of a body, four legs and a head with two raisins in it for the eyes. The flavor and texture impressed my parent's dinner guests.
My cooking tragedies
Accidentally substituting the amount of sugar with salt in a peanut butter cookie recipe when I was 10.
