I am a wife and mother of two little girls who loves to cook (when kids aren't demanding my attention). I grew up in Phoenix, AZ and currently live in Shizuoka, Japan. Hopefully I can learn more about Japanese food and infuse it with my every day cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook anything that tastes great but mainly American dishes with an occasional Mexican, Italian, and Asian dish. We took a Thai cooking class while traveling and enjoy making several dishes when we have the time to make them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
There are several dishes that have been passed down to me over the years that I love making (berox and strips of beef). If I get bold enough, I may even put them on allrecipes for everyone.
My cooking triumphs
I cooked a ham for the first time for Easter where 5 air force guys scarfed it all down.
My cooking tragedies
A spicy chicken dish from a Taste of Homes cook book left my husband and I in pain for an entire day. Won't make that mistake again.
