About this Cook
Single Mom, cooking is my passion! (Eating unfortunately, is a close second- LOL!) Always looking for something new to try- love diversity in food-Traditionally, My Mother, being born & raised in Japan, cooks many amazing dishes! Sadly, she has very limited access to many of the ingredients needed for her dishes- My sister and I have similar tastes- although my sister is way more advanced and talented in the kitchen than I-
My favorite things to cook
Stews, pastas, homecooking recipes, baking, yeast breads, marinades, anything flavorful, hearty, and tasty.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mother cooks an amazing Japanese stew on New Years Eve called "Oden"- which is a traditional Japanese soup that has Daikon, Fish cakes (beautifully formed into colorful shapes and designs),wakame, tofu, boiled eggs, and potatoes simmered in a light soy and fish broth.
My cooking triumphs
Yeast breads, homemade tortillas, homemade corn tortillas, tamales-
My cooking tragedies
Dropped a full beautifully decorated cake off the counter, burnt a chicken to a crisp (almost burnt my house down in the process), dumped a pizza that I had made from scratch face down onto the floor trying to take it out of the oven, made a chocolate cake and forgot the sugar....

Fluffy Pancakes
Absolutely amazing!!! These pancakes are my favorite hands down- I wouldn't change a thing with this recipe- the entire family loved them!!! These bad boys went so fast, I had to make a second double recipe! With a hectic work schedule and no time during the week to cook, I froze two pancakes in each freezer bag for a quick and easy breakfast for my son- highly recommend this recipe!!!!

Amish White Bread
Instead of loaves, I separate into tiny balls, and place 3 marble sized balls into each muffin pan, rise according to instructions, then brush an egg wash over the top of each roll- The result is unbelieveable! Yummy, beautiful, perfect!!!

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
