About this Cook
I am 55 years old and the mother of two sons. I was not born in the Territories but I have lived there longer than anywhere else and my sons were born there, so it is home to us.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making soups--any kind really. I like to experiment using boneless chicken pieces--stirfrying, baking, slowcooking. I love to cook with shrimp and various kinds of fish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Olive oil and sea salt
My cooking triumphs
Roast Beef, Oven-Baked Ham, and Carrot Bisque
My cooking tragedies
Lemon-Noodle Chicken--my husband and sons still give me a hard time about this and it was 15 years ago!!! I was following a recipe in a book and I somehow thought that I needed to add the juice from 3 lemons rather than the required 3T. Needless to say, it was a bit too tangy--to say the least.
