Sushi, but also ginger garlic chicken is awesome. I have a friend in Japan who shares her home cooked recipes with me. She taught me how to make a lot of stuff.

I make dinner every night for 10-13 people, two parents, three brothers, and seven sisters. I do it cause the only other person who can cook in the house is my Dad and he's too busy, and I'm a control freak in the kitchen. Sometimes I love it, and sometime I'm hysteric….usually hysteric.

Sometimes, I'm not as good as my sister, but I've been getting better at it.

I've never found cooking to be that difficult no, but cleaning up can be a pain sometimes (- A-)

I think a lot of people avoid cooking because they're afraid that they'll mess something up or that if they mess something up that the whole meal is ruined, but cooking is definitely a skill and one worth having at that. I'd say any given person should have around three recipes that they know forward and backwards and it'll get you pretty far; they don't even have to be complicated either. Just know how to work around not having something on hand or maybe substituting in something new every once in a while and eventually cooking will just become a nice hobby, it'll hardly feel like labor, and the payoff is rewarding AND delicious!

Nice!
I'm guessing you live in Appleton, WI, & am wondering if there is a lot of "real" Japanese restaurants around?
Or is it mostly Americanized Japanese restaurants?jw

Ah, all mostly Americanized,based on what my friend has taught me. She loves bitter gourd. I'd never tried it until she mentioned it. It does take some time to get used to. But once you like it, it's pretty good.

Dude you know the cup noodles? Water and 2:30 minutes on microwave? yes I tried that, the sad part is that I didn't put water on it. The whole microwave smelled like burnt popcorn.


My brother did that exact same thing.

I do find cooking hard though

You cook for 13 people? Good god man. My heart goes out to you. I cook for 1.

I was a chef for 2 years, though, so I know what it's like to cook for a crowd.

I don't think it's difficult, but that's probably because I don't prepare anything all that complex.

Interesting.

How did u eat it? My dad usually make bitter gourd champloo. It's an important ingredients in Okinawa.
Also goes well with beer lol
I'm sure a lot of ppl prefer bitter gourd anyway than Nattou (fermented soybean)

I think its easy with a recipe, but getting the ingredient is the problem for me since I have no source of income or transportation at all. Also maybe organization is kinda hard too but this on is my opinion.
