I always watch an episode or two when I'm laying in bed trying to prepare myself to sleep! =) My boyfriend hasn't had any form of international food until he got with me. He says I do great with Mexican food (I was raised around it), but my Asian cooking is his favorite (I was married to a Japanese-Somoan previously).
