About this Cook
I've lived the last 3 years in Japan, and from this fall I'll be moving to England for grad school.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, although not necessarily eat the baked goods, and love taking cooking courses in foreign countries, while traveling!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making 10 or 15 types of cookies in December, freezing them all, and then taking them all out on Christmas Eve!
My cooking triumphs
My greatest triump has been successfully learning how to make Japanese style lunch boxes (called bento) and making 8 Thai dishes in a cooking course in Thailand.
My cooking tragedies
Trying to bake anything in a Japanese oven, as they royally suck, and you have to keep turning the food around manually.

Mujaddara Arabic Lentil Rice
With a few alterations, this has become my de-facto side dish for lunch. I cut the recipe down to 1/2 cup lentils and 1/3 cup rice, with less garlic and cumin. I use chicken broth to cook the lentils and add chopped onion at the rice cooking stage. I divide it up into thirds for lunch, giving me something filling and tasty that's under 200 calories!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I
With only 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of mini-chocolate chips (to better spread the chocolate goodness), these cookies are one of my favorites. I freeze them and have one whenever a chocolate craving hits me.

Easy Oatmeal Muffins
Despite the fact I made a "cake" shaped giant muffin, it turned out good. I used brown sugar instead of white, along with some cinnamon and ginger. I think next time I'll add some walnuts or apples to make it perfect.
