MY dad starting teaching me how to cook as soon as I was old enough to stand on a stool and stir the gravy. I have been cooking ever since and I love learning new techniques or trying new dishes. My three sons and husband are somewhat picky, so I have to limit my creations to not too exotic!!!. I have also learned to cook with limited resources since we live overseas and are at the end of the supply chain.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking Italian food. Living in Japan, we have great sushi everywhere but the Italian is limited and is designed more for the Japanese palate. So, I make all sorts of Italian dishes at home now and my husband says they are better than what you can get in the restaurant.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is southern, so we fry everything. Over the years, however, I have moved away from frying and now I bake, saute, grill or broil everything we eat.
My cooking triumphs
I have completely overhauled my husband's diet to include veggies, whole fiber sources and lean protein....and with no complaints of non-tasting food.
My cooking tragedies
Every once in a while, I come across a dish that my husband doesn't like alot, but I have not had any dishes that were not edible.
