My favorite guinea pig...
About this Cook
I am a Chinese-American, raised in Texas, living in Moscow, with my Russian husband! Everyone, all together now... "We are the world..." :)
My favorite things to cook
Chinese food, Pastas, Tex-Mex
My favorite family cooking traditions
Both my parents are excellent cooks, and as is the case with any Asian American family, our family life revolves around FOOD!I fondly recall helping my mother prepare our special Lunar New Year delicacies, watching my dad prepare the best noodle soup ever, and of course going out to dim sum every weekend.
My cooking triumphs
The best Thai noodle pasta, Soy Sauce Chicken, and a mean Death by Chocolate...
My cooking tragedies
Fresh on my mind: the most revolting Banana Creme Pie in the world. Gag and trash!

Balsamic Chicken
great- i was surprised- i thought it would be more tart- but the sugar melded out the flavors quite nicely- i did add more garlic and a touch more sugar.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
loved these- added more cinnamon, nutmeg, used allspice instead of cloves... soaked the raisins and baked 11 min. perfection
