I'm a single mom who can never find enough time in the day. I love gourmet cooking and find that it is great therapy and creative expression. My oldest son is a great chef already at 13, and we're hoping to one day own a restaurant together.
My favorite things to cook
I love ethnic foods and love to fuse them to form innovative recipes with different tastes. I love just about everything and will try everything else at least twice just to make sure I don't like it...lol.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Dinnertime in our house is the only time we are together as a family. When it's time, all the kids gather around the kitchen to watch. So we have time to catch up on one another's day while preparing and dining. Each child has a special dish and we take turns so that no one is left out.
My cooking triumphs
I love that I can make something out of what seems like nothing. Some of my best recipes evolved from ingenuinity and having a mish-mosh of ingredients that forced creative meal planning.
My cooking tragedies
I'm a horrible baker. I try and I try but just not there. But I will continue to try because I enjoy it. People just don't have to eat it...lol.
