I'm a homemaking stay at home mom with a bachelor of art degree that loves anything creative and anything to do with the kitchen!
My two year old daughter always pulls up a chair and loves to cook with Mommy :D
My weakness is cheese, and my new aspiration is to learn to cook Thai food for our family.
My favorite things to cook
Italian, desserts, canning/preserving, comfort food... hmmm what don't I like to cook?
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pulling recipes from my dutch/indonesian ancestry. Making hot and spicy tao-cho for over rice and potato croquettes for Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
When I try a new recipe and it turns out great, or becomes a family favorite. My specialty: white chocolate raspberry creme brulee.
My cooking tragedies
Making "garbonzo bean dinner" an attempt at curry had WAY TOO MUCH!!! turmeric and wasn't even edible or tweakable into a keeper. My poor husband was trying hard to choke it down and not complain until I pushed my plate away and said, "Babe I don't think I can eat this!" to which he promptly replied, "oh good! me either." : P
