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.
