About this Cook
I'm still learning how to cook, my mother is still the Queen of the Kitchen. I'm excellent at breakfast foods and cold sandwiches and rice. Other than's uncharted territory, my friend.
My favorite things to cook
Favorite: Rice; Most experience: Eggs, pancakes, rice, coconut custard pie, m&m pretzels, sweet cheese ball, Oyako Donburi,
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving, mother bakes the Turkey and the Peas&Pearl Onions in white sauce and Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows and the Orange Jello and the Breakfast Breads. Everyone pitches in with the pies (in 2010 we had 15 pies for 16 people, one pie leftover literally).
My cooking triumphs
Pancakes, Oyako Donburi (I love this dish), Rice, Coconut Custard Pie (Amish recipe, so fattening),
My cooking tragedies
Jello. I hate it and will never make it again.

Oyako Donburi
AI!! Thank you so much for this amazing dish!! I can die happy now. By the way, it certainly tastes better when its Shitake mushrooms and Kikkoman soy sauce. The first time I made this dish I only had canned mushrooms (I don't even know what kind they were...) and La Choy soy sauce... I WILL NEVER DO THAT AGAIN!! Sacrilege, really...

Rhubarb adds its tangy flavor to everything from salsa to lemonade. Don't forget the pie.
