Hi everyone. I recently moved to quiet PA Dutch country, but my roots are in Tokyo, Japan, where I was born and NYC, where I was also raised. Being multi ethnic I grew up eating both eastern and western cuisine. I was raised by my Korean step- mother, an absolutely outstanding cook. Thanks to her I grew up around food preparation, which instilled the desire to cook good food. I love all types of food, and there is nothing like a great home cooked meal. I have also traveled extensively and have incorporated foods from countries where I have visited and lived into my diet. I love this website. If I have something I need to use up, all I have to do now is do a search and voila! I have found plenty of recipes to choose from---I even found recipes for sour milk! On a more personal level, I am a single woman with 3 cats and a dog. I work in a medical billing office and am currently studying to be a hospital coder. I would love to eventually work from home and possibly have a boarding house for international students where I can serve dinner from recipes I have found here!
