I'm 57 years old and moved to The Netherlands in 1990 with my 2 daughters and husband (now ex). Love the 4 seasons here and the people! I do miss California and the rest of my family and friends but life is a constant change. I'm a grandmother for the first time October 21, 2012 my granddaughter Elyja was born!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking Indonesian foods, Italian, Mexican and generally all types of good tasting dishes.
My cooking triumphs
My cakes are my biggest triumphs; red velvet, chocolate zucchini, carrot cake to name a few.
My cooking tragedies
I am now married to a great man but as he's really Dutch he's not too thrilled at being my guinea pig when I try new recipes. My cooking "failures" have been some chicken recipes but then again he's never had any typical American recipes. He loves sloppy joes, tacos, burritos and Indonesian ayam pedis (hot chicken). So really my cooking tragedy would be my husband (just kidding!).
