I am living in two worlds. I need to cook for Asian and Mexican food lovers. I try to please. I am in a quandry! I have a German background. I love to cook ALL ethnic recipes. We're all experimenting. The guys are my room mates and I am the cook!
My favorite things to cook
German, Asian and Mexican dishes. Barbeque and baking are my favorites. Stews and comfort foods are my favorites in the winter. I love to cook soup and bake breads in the winter, and barbeque pork and chicken dishes in the summer. My favorites are German dishes, but Asian and Mexican need to be on my list as well!
My favorite family cooking traditions
A perfect BBQ with corn, watermelon and ambrosia at summertime. A turkey with all the trimmings at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Sharing secret recipes and disovering more! Sharing heritage and forgetting predjudices! Ethnicity ends at the stove or BBQ! We gathered and we ate, we didn't care what country we came from! Those were my favorite traditions! I want to bring them back!
My cooking triumphs
I finally made a perfect meatloaf. I used oatmeal and onion soup mix. The meatloaf didn't fall apart! I made a perfect turkey for Thanksgiving that I didn't overstuff!
My cooking tragedies
I overstuffed my first Thanksgiving turkey and it exploded!
