I grew up eating a lot of processed bland food. As an adult I now am addicted to the Food Channel and learning how to cook gourmet foods.
My favorite things to cook
I am Hawaiian so I grew up eating a lot of oriental themed foods so I really love new things now. Anything Italian has to be my favorite type of food!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I would have to say even though I love flavorful original foods now, I still can not resist some of my mothers old time recipes. My favorites would have to be her pot roast which she makes in a pot that is older than me or her "famous" hawaiian style banana bread. Nothing like good old comfort food.
My cooking triumphs
Learning how to make fried chicken! haha I have no patience in the world. Actually I would have to say my best "cooking" moment would have to be this last Thanksgiving, I actually cooked an entire "gourmet" meal by myself for my whole family. Everyone was amazed at how wonderful the food was.
My cooking tragedies
The first 25 years of my life! LOL I don't even think I could make kool-aid back than!
