About this Cook
Typical girl. I like shopping, hanging out with friends, movies, music, linguistics, and, of course, cooking! I love trying new food and learning about different cultures!
My favorite things to cook
I'm Asian, so I make a lot of Asian food, however, anything that looks pretty or delicious, I will attempt to make!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Vietnamese food - spring rolls, summer rolls, Pho, seafood noodle soup (Mi Do Bien), Vietnamese subs. Thanksgiving food - Sausage and Cranberry stuffing, sweet potato pie, APPLE PIE WITH VANILLA ICE CREAM!!!!, mashed potatos, etc. Christmas - cookies!, baked ham, spinach salad, pound cake, etc..... This list could go on and on and on.......
My cooking triumphs
I can make some really good fried rice and I've aced the category of cookies and some cakes. Broiled pork chops with caramelized apples. Oven Mac and Cheese. French onion soup (without the wine). French/Vietnamese Style Beef Stew. Stir-fry veggies.
My cooking tragedies
Hawaiian Chicken stew. I got the recipe from allrecipes, but as I was breaking the brown sugar chunk, a giant piece fell from the bag and into the pot. Also put in too much cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger (to make up for not having allspice.) No amount of water or salt really saved it. Though it was edible, it tasted like Gingerbread cookie soup with chicken, potatoes and carrots. It was weird. Serves me right for being hungry and impatient!

California Roll Salad
Great salad! My boyfriend and I loved this dish! We made the following additions: dried nori strips, sesame seeds and flying fish roe. This tastes just like a california roll. The salad dressing really does the trick. Great for a picnics and potlucks!

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup
Great tasting and healthy! I omitted carrots, canned tomatoes and the bell peppers. Used only 1/2 head of cabbage (whole is too much), 1 chopped onion, frozen green beans, frozen okra, tomato sauce, 3/4 worcestershire sauce, 1/2 cup Texas Hot Pete, dried basil, oregano, rosemary, cumin, 1 tablespoon of kosher salt and black pepper. Looking forward to making this again!

Coconut Curd Junket
Pretty good recipe. Not sure what the other reviewer was expecting, but this is meant to taste light and not artificial. A lot of people are used to strong coconut-flavored items that contain a lot of coconut oil and artificial flavors. Since this recipe is made with Agar, the texture will be different than JELLO. Recipe worked well for me and my friends.
