Self taught home cook. My mom was (is) a horrible cook and by 12 I was cooking meals and adding flavor into my life. My kids have turned out to be foodies and that makes me proud.
My favorite things to cook
I love all things ethnic and love experimenting with flavors and spices. I love to build a meal from the protien and spices. Everyone laughs at my themes but loves my food
My favorite family cooking traditions
On Christmas Eve we always have Chinese and make dumplings and Cantonese Chow Mein. Started as an ode to a Christmas Story and has stuck.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving when not one person at the table asked for salt or pepper.
My cooking tragedies
My deep fry fail
