About this Cook
I am a literature graduate student. Currently, I am living in Champaign, IL with my daughter, husband and doggies.
My favorite things to cook
I love Mediterranean and Asian food. I also loves recipes for kids.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I did not participate in the kitchen as much I am doing right now. :(
My cooking triumphs
I started to cook after I got married. It was really hard. I think I burned a lot of things and made a mess. Finally, I am settled down. I am good in some things, but like everything, I need some practice.
My cooking tragedies
I love spices, chicken, fish, fruits, and vegetables. I do not eat meat or pork.

Moroccan Chicken and Whole Grain Couscous
It was pretty good overal. I added extra vegetables, tomatoes, and chicken. I doubled the spices for extra flavor.
