Chi sono io?/Who am I?

Me with cameraHi, I am Memoria James, and I’m a xenophile from Houston, Texas. I speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, with some knowledge of French and German. I can also read Korean characters but am far from fluent. I have a masters and have completed PhD coursework in Spanish and Portuguese linguistics, and I teach college-level Spanish. However, my heart now belongs to traveling, returning to Europe permanently, and conjuring up domestic and international, culinary creations. I love to bake and cook simple and complicated dishes. I love to try out different international dishes and, after much research and recipe comparisons, make them as authentic as possible. I also enjoy baking for my family, friends, colleagues, and students.
