About this Cook
There's nothing much to say about me... I'm a total nerd who spends most of the time in front of a computer and the rest in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
I love foreign food. I also love new challenges in cooking and discovering new flavor profiles. Also I seem to be a wiz at making cookies, I experiment with them alot and they just seem to turn out right. (barring the occasional overcooking)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have many family cooking traditions, I mostly remember Hamburger Helper for dinner. But, there is one little thing. My grandmother used to make the best breakfasts when I was a kid, and she always put Poultry seasoning in the scrambled eggs, and to this day I still love it in my eggs.
My cooking triumphs
I guess my most recent triumph would be making mochi and daifuku (sweet red bean filled mochi) for first time, and it actually turned out wonderful, almost as good as the real ones I've had... just nowhere as pretty.
My cooking tragedies
I can't really think of any, not that I don't have any, I just can't think of one now. I'm the kind of person who likes to overthink things as to prevent said cooking tragedies. I'll get back to ya on this.

Buttermilk Chess Pie
This was a very good recipe, and so quick and easy to make. The prep time was much less than 30 mins even when making my own crust and I cooked it a little longer until set (recipes ARE just guidelines after all). This is one of my go-to pies from now on.

I loved these cookies. I used a little more cardamom and made them in a standard cookie shape with a whole almond pressed in the center. It has a wonderful exotic flavor, and it's just perfect for a snack with a cup of tea.

Oil Pie Crust
This made a lovely simple crust. I was out of butter and looking for a crust recipe for a vegetable pot pie I was making, and this was marvelous. I loved the texture and it was so quick to make, this is a keeper.
