I love to cook and enjoy different ethnic foods. I want to get more into Bento boxes, the cuteness factor alone makes the smaller portions so appealing.
My favorite things to cook
I like BBQing and Asian cooking. I like to try challenging recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My daughter loves Chicken and Dumpling soup, my hearty beef borscht. We are Japanese and love the differnt Japanese foods, as well as the Chinese influence.
My cooking triumphs
Chicken and Dumplings with Stars soup; Hearty Beef Borscht, full of barley and garden veggies; Michel's Sheperd's Pie; Frozen Mochi Ice Cream; Chicken Cordon Blue Casserole
My cooking tragedies
My worst attempts are my East Indian dishes. I haven't figured out the correct proprortions of spices for our tastes.
