I LOVE food! Cooking is one of my hobbies and my husband loves it whenever I'm in the kitchen! He is American, but I turned him into a complete Asian food lover. I grew up in Japan, eating very well balanced tasty meal cooked by my mom, so definitely my cooking is influenced by her. I hope to share some of her recipes, but most of them are in my head and I never really measure condiments, so it will be difficult to write a recipe... we will see.
My favorite things to cook
My mom's curry. It takes almost entire day to make it, so I need to be home all day, but it's worth it!
I also love my home-made gyoza (chinese dumplings). Little time consuming, but way better than store bought dumplings.
My husband and friends love my beef bowl, it's my number one requested dish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
In Japan, we prepare a very extensive festive meal for New Year's Day. I always see my mom in the kitchen for 2 days preparing everything. I always enjoy helping her, but a little scared that I will have to prepare this myself one day! It's a lot of work!
