About this Cook
I like to come to the kitchen and apply what I have learned through the years and also learning new and exciting things. I love to try and experiment with new dishes with any type of food. From something simple as tomatoes right off the vine (from my backyard garden) sprinkled with salt and pepper to a very delicious, full of flavor, slow simmered Cioppino.
My favorite things to cook
I just... like... everything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I believe it is a beautiful thing to cherish at least one recipe that a family member taught us; whether mom, grandma, auntie or even dad, it is very special. Maybe down the road when you are teaching your own children in the kitchen, in a way you are celebrating by remembering the person who told you about the passed down recipe and maybe spark some interesting conversation.
My cooking triumphs
I'm still getting humbled by the "My cooking tragedies" box... Will have to come back here on a later time.
My cooking tragedies
I know there is something to share about here... Cannot quite figure it out; I know I will remember. Bear with me please, filling this box is a very humbling experience.

Vanilla Sesame Cake
My daughter made this cake recently for her friend who baked cookies for our family. They were so delicious (I must ask for the recipe), but we needed to return the plate they came with. So, I decided at that moment to teach my children about a tradition I learned from my family when I was a little girl: "when somebody gives you a plate (could be container, bowl, etc.), and you know they are expecting it back, it is a very kind gesture to return something in it". I think it doesn't need to be a food item, or something you have to bake; it could be a card saying a simple thank you or the wonders about the food received, it is up to your creativity. I remember my auntie sometimes used to just return it with some fresh vegetable or fruit from her garden. My daughter went online and found this delightful and easy vanilla cake recipe. She did not use the black sesame seeds, but surely we would love to try it sometime.
