I work part time at the seafood department of the grocery store in our town. I am happily married and have two children 7 and 8.
My favorite things to cook
I love ethnic food! We never eat anything bland and boring, always using bold, flavourful ingredients and unique recipes
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom loves making desserts; i'm not a big dessert fan though. My father makes a mean chicken kiev!
My cooking triumphs
My thai curry pastes from scratch
My Indian chicken with almonds/pistashios (hopefully soon to be posted!), Chicken Baton Rouge (cajun marinated chicken, or shrimp, mushrooms, green peppers, onions in a sherry cajun cream sauce)
My cooking tragedies
'Cement-head award of the year' award, given to ME! I can't bake to save my life. My biggest error...thinking I could use corn oil instead of corn syrup in a cookie recipe. Duh!!! (boy did they spread on the pan!)
