About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was lucky to grow up with healthy everyday Asian food. It definitely helps me make good choices today.
My cooking triumphs
Cheesecakes, always a roaring success.
My cooking tragedies
I made a Boston cream pie when I was 9 or 10. I removed the cake from the pan too soon and it cracked but I thought I could fix it with the pudding/filling. When that didn't work, I hoped to cover it all up with the chocolate icing. It was a train wreck.... And then there was the time I made a pean pie. I followed the recipe to the letter but the filling just wouldn't set! So it ended up as pecan pie soup... Very disappointing.

Best Bircher Muesli
My mother was German so we had a lot of this growing up. For it to be complete for me, it needs ground or flaked hazelnuts and chopped apples. So good!

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)
This is really great cake and good for a group event. I skip the whip cream and bring a thawed bag of frozen (mixed) berries to spoon over each individual portion. Dee-lightful.

Famous Chicken Adobo
My variations include adding a shot of sherry, a tablespoon or two of sugar and a piece of star anise along with the soya sauce and water. Cook that up and the flavour is far from bland, plain or just salty. For colour my dad used to add chunks of carrot and let that cook along. If you want to thicken it, add a bit of cornstarch (1 tsp or so) disolved in water, and bring to a final boil.
