I am s mom of 2 VERY active kids who have not yet found an activity they do not want to join. Working full-time and going back to school with these 2 make it very hard to find time to cook well rounded meals that my husband and kids will all enjoy.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake anything- cakes, cookies, bread. Still have not got the hang of pie crust though. I love regular family dishes like meatloaf, lasagna, roast. Also try to cook alot of Korean meals for my famly.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making frosted sugar cookies for Christmas, rolling kimbop (korean) with my family, vegetable crunchy salad at Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
Trying to cook Korean food as well as my in-laws do, and baking my cakes. I started cake decorating years ago and have worked hard at improving each year. I only make them for friends and family and I am alwsys trying new recipes and techniques. Am still trying to bake a pie that tastes like my Grandma's.
My cooking tragedies
pies and meat. I did not grow up eatinf fish at all so I am always trying to get that right. Trying to make the perfect roast that my daughter will eat because it is juicy enough.
