About this Cook
I am a big foodie. Love to eat and cook. Love everything homemade. I like to try out new recipes and do my own tweaking on it. I learn traditional cooking from my grandma and my mom by watching. And coming up with new dish ideas is my regular day-dream routine.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook in this order - cakes, crockpot dishes, cookies, simple and healthy Chinese dishes, and soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom always makes a lot of her signature potstickers for parties and gatherings. Those potstickers are always a hit and the first thing disappeared. And somehow only my mom can make potstickers taste that good.
My cooking triumphs
The real triumph is seeing my love ones enjoy my food. That makes me happy and feel accomplished something.
My cooking tragedies
I have little too many cooking tradedies to count since I love to try making new things. Thanks to my forgiving hubby who can eat all of my "failed attempts".

Winter Melon Meatball Soup
This is a wonderful recipe and very easy to make. You can also add egg drop (beaten egg) and or rice vermicelli into the soup to add some more body to the broth. Will definitely make it again! :)

Fabulous Fudge Chocolate Cake
My favorit chocolate cake recipe! Just made this for a birthday and everyone loved it so much that it was completely gone! I took the advice on substituted broiling water with coffee and it sure added more flavor. The caramel frosting sounded weird to me at first but it went so well with the cake. The cake was moist, dense and fudgy. This is a simple recipe and the outcome is amazing.
