When life gives you lamb, it's time to go Greek.One of my favorite traditional Easter dinners is leg of lamb encrusted with rosemary, thyme, and coriander, with new potatoes roasted right in the pan. It's always wonderful the first night. But what about the next day? Cold roast lamb holds… MORE

A few years ago a dear friend taught me how to wax and dye Ukrainian Easter eggs, and being a couple of obsessive crafters with lots of time on our hands, we settled down to make dozens and dozens of eggs. The basic idea is to draw a design on a raw egg with melted beeswax and dip the egg… MORE

But of course I'm not Irish. Like that matters today. I am by birth 100% hapa but I'm not going to let that get in the way of making Irish stew and champ and washing it down with Guinness. Uh huh. And I've got The Long Black Veil by The Chieftains on the iPod and… MORE

Sunday breakfast usually goes something like this: "What do you want to eat?" "I don't know. What do you feel like cooking?" "I don't know." And so on. But this past Sunday I mentioned making pancakes to celebrate Pancake Week and the crowd went wild. Okay, there are only three of us, but you… MORE

A friend tells me she tried to have dim sum this weekend in the International District, only to find the restaurants completely overwhelmed by everyone else in Seattle who had the same idea. It’s the Lunar New Year, after all--The Year of the Ox—a year said to be characterized by prosperity… MORE

The best part of Super Bowl Sunday is eating chicken wings. The worst part of Super Bowl Sunday is cutting up chicken wings.I always make big batches of teriyaki wings and Buffalo wings, and that’s a lot of cutting. So after I blogged about how much I loved my kitchen shears, I decided to try… MORE

About Me
Two working adults and a kid in school. Someone has to cook and that someone is usually me. *sigh*
My favorite things to cook
Whatever makes my family smile while they're eating.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I cook, they clean up after me. It's the kind of tradition I can fully embrace.
My cooking triumphs
No one has asked me to stop yet.
My cooking tragedies
When I was 13, I made pecan rolls for my family. The recipe called for 8 refrigerator biscuits but the package held 10. My mom asked me what I did with the other 2. Judging from the look on her face, "I threw them away" wasn't the right answer.
