I'm a children's librarian and the mother of 2 girls. My husband is Filipino-American, I'm Jewish American and our home cuisine spans a wide range of foods
My favorite things to cook
Pretty much everything I cook, especially with seasonal veggies from my garden and the farmer's market!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma's spaghetti sauce and my other grandma's pink applesauce and potato latkes.
My cooking triumphs
Making sticky buns from my mother-in-law's recipe that are almost as good as hers! And the Chanukah bash I throw at work every year--I cook the latkes right at work and bring in lots of homemade cookies and my renowned cheesecake.
My cooking tragedies
I am still trying to master "New York" pizza, bagels and Jewish rye bread, none of which I can get in my current area!
