My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Having Christmas family barbeque at my grandmother's house in Baguio City, Philippines. Everyone was there -- my grandfather was on the grill, my grandmother was busy inside the kitchen. My parents and uncles and aunts are drinking and eating traditional Filipino "pulutan" or finger food. All the grandchildre, including myself are at the kid's table too busy to gossip because we were fighting over my grandmother's "chicharon bulaklak." The food is absolutely delicious but the company was even better.
My cooking triumphs
Cooked something that made my husband change his mind about leftovers!
My cooking tragedies
Left gizzard bag inside a turkey during Thanksgiving. Fried the turkey and then only discovered it when my father-in-law cut open the Turkey.
