I love ethnic food & go out of my way to look for flavorful recipes that are authentic and built from the basics (not from cans).
My favorite things to cook
Indian food, staples like pot pie, shepherds Pie, gourmet and eventually I will learn to bake!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Honey Lavendar duck (we got from epicurious.com) we have it every year for Thanksgiving or Christmas!
My cooking triumphs
Anytime the ethnic food turns out to be really good (which is most of the time). I love the way the flavors are never the same but always good!
My cooking tragedies
Typically forgetting ingredients... baking powder and soda -always pay attention to what the ingredients call for!
