About this Cook
I really HATE cooking. But I like eating. I am an OK cook. But since I hate cooking I tend to make bland and tastless food. I am trying to spend more time cooking. I am hoping if I get better at it I might like it more.
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake. But of course I am always on a diet. So not much outlet for my baking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was a very bland cook. My dad was Hawaiian so we always had rice. I am trying to expand my Spam recipes. Spam is big in Hawaii.

All Protein Meatloaf
I never add the pork skins. Adding filler to meat loaf was started to make the meat stretch not in enhance the flavor. I add lots of chopped fresh mushrooms, onions, and red peppers.

Peanut Butter Vegetable Chicken Soup
Excellent!! The only thing I did not like was the broccoli was mushy. Next time, I plan on putting the fresh uncooked broccoli in each bowl and poring the soup on top of it. I also added one jalapeno pepper.. I might add two next time.
