About this Cook
I'm a web design consultant and freelance graphic designer by day, aspiring best-selling author by night and full-time mama of one (4). Married for two years. Weaknesses: fashion, art, outdoors, animals, cruises & traveling, and Ian Somerhalder.
My favorite things to cook
Curry and cookies! (but not together, obviously)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother on my father's side was Japanese, so I grew up with a lot of Asian cooking. Though I took after my mother's German appearance, I am all Asian when it comes to my tastes, whether it be food or decor.
My cooking triumphs
My daughter's strawberry/chocolate Hello Kitty 3rd birthday cake, my annual Christmas cookies giveaway, any Indian dish I got off AllRecipes.
My cooking tragedies
Making Campbell's tomato soup for my future husband. I wasn't used to his stove and it boiled over, scorched and filled his house with smoke. I've since proven to him that I can, indeed, cook, and thankfully he decided to take a chance on that.

Emily's Famous Hash Browns
Finally I can make hashbrowns that don't fall apart!! I made these tonight and they turned out great. I added cumin because, for some reason, cumin and potatoes just work so well together. I also used peanut oil to fry them in -- that's what McDonald's uses for their fries, which is a big reason they're so delish!

Curried Potato Salad
Made this for a company picnic last night. HUGE hit! It was the dish everyone was talking about. I was concerned that maybe the curry would put off most people, but it was very well received. I recommend this dish if you want to bring something to a potluck that will make people talk! I pretty much went by the recipe and 2.5x'ed the recipe, which, for 50+ people, I think I would have been okay 1.5x'ing it because I have no idea what I'm going to do with all the leftovers. The only adjustment I made to the ingredients was substituting onion powder for the chopped red onion. I'm not a fan of crunchy onions, and the recipe already had enough crunch with the apples and the celery. We all agreed that the curry and apples are a surprisingly spot-on combination. I used red delicious apples because I was afraid the tartness of a different type would fight with the other flavors.
