Love to cook and love to eat! When I'm looking for a recipe, I never stick to one. I take certain things from several different recipes, and put them together to make my own. There have been recipes that should have been way simpler, and others that have been fantastic, you cook and you learn.
My favorite things to cook
What I love to eat of course. Some current favs are potato salad, meatloaf, braised chicken drumsticks with white wine and pears, and stir fry. My favorite cuisines are vietnamese, italian, french, american, thai and mexican.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Still trying to get all the secrets out of my mom. She makes a mean bowl of pho and eggrolls to die for among other vietnamese delicacies.
My cooking triumphs
Perfecting betty crocker's chili con carne with some of my own personal touches.
My cooking tragedies
Many a burned steak. The pork chops last night. Lima beans.
