I have always loved cooking and now I am regaining my passion for it after a bit of a hiatus.
My favorite things to cook
My favortite things to cook are savory dishes but I also love to bake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
At the moment I don't have one. As my family grows I plan to create our own traditions.
My cooking triumphs
It was Thanksgiving 2011. It was my fist time hosting a Thanksgiving dinner at my house since I've been married. After everyone ate I notice my sister in-law and her two daughers asleep on the couch. In my culture we call that the "Itis". This is when you eat a good meal and you fall asleep almost immediately after consumption. This is when I knew that I have a knack for cooking. :-)
My cooking tragedies
Recently, I made Banana Bread. It came out so hard and dense I could barely chew it. I ate almost all of it out of sheer pride.
