About this Cook
Asian suburban mom of 3 finicky kids and married to an Englishman. Basically, I eat sushi in the closet on a weekly basis.
My favorite things to cook
Fast and healthy meals. I'm also an avid baker. I try and use organics as much as possible.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Sunday morning, I cook a hot breakfast. Every birthday person in the family gets to choose every meal the family eats on their special day.
My cooking triumphs
Catering a party of 100 for less than $250. A white chocolate raspberry cheesecake that was *fought* over in my husband's office. Every meal my kids actually eat (this is rare)! Finally perfecting Yorkshire Pudding.
My cooking tragedies
A pancake disaster as a youngster taught me never, ever improvise with basic recipes! Also the time I tried to whip cream without a machine - tried to impress the new parents-in-law once, and I came out of the kitchen sweaty and with barely fluffy pourable cream.

Honey Nut Granola
I've made this granola many times, exactly to the recipe. We eat this on yogurt for breakfast most mornings, but family visitors fill bowls and eat it with milk. It's lightly sweetened with the honey, which is the way we like it.

Baked Ziti I
WOW! I was feeling like trying something a little different and found this recipe. Followed the recipe to the letter and OH my gosh is this good! It's a handy thing that the recipe fills a large pan because the family would otherwise fight over leftovers! Perfect for a mid-week dinner in the fall and winter. Kids would have plenty to do if they wanted to help next time. THANK YOU FOR SHARING!

Yellow Squash Casserole
This is a WONDERFUL recipe. I love the cheesy onion flavors. I varied the thickness of the slices and chunks of squash to vary the bite feel. Look at it as a squash au gratin and serve it as a warm side to ham or roast chicken or turkey. Depending on what you're serving with it, you may need to add garlic, peppers or meat. My pickiest kid loved this. I will try and make a pan, freeze, then reheat to see how it fares. Thanks for sharing!!
