I have been cooking since I was 7. My Mom was an incredible cook and taught me about all types of cooking. Growing up, friends would flock to our home to see what we were having for dinner - never boring!! Asian (Korean, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese), Italian, Indian (East and American), Mexican (Sonoran, Tex-Mex & New Mexican) & I can't forget to mention - Southern (Black-eyed peas, Fried Okra, Butterbeans and collard greens). YUM YUM!!!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook soups, Chicken Carbonara & BAKE! I love to bake!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to cook for Thanksgiving. I use my Mom's family recipe for dressing - which is to die for and a meal in itself, giblet gravy and cranberry salsa. Excellent and long waited for!
My cooking triumphs
Everything I cook is a triumph. I never take for granted that I know how to cook and always appreciate the compliments from a well thought out meal.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to cook a Devils Food cake for my Mom's birthday. I was seven and forgot to put in a rising agent. With all the red food coloring it looked like boiling lava. To this day my family and I still have a good laugh about it.
