Last week, I went to the farmer's market by my office and found that it wasn't there!  So I ended up getting produce from Whole Foods and selected items that were labeled "locally grown".  Surprisingly, it was cheaper than I expected! My pick for last week was "savoy cabbage".  It looked… MORE

It has been almost a year since I wrote my last blog entry!  Yikes.  I was hoping that blogging would keep me on track with eating healthy but I guess I am just too good at procrastinating!  A couple of weeks ago, I watched a documentary called "Ingredients" that I got from Netflix.  I think… MORE

My daughter is allergic to so many things so I have a hard time figuring out what to give her for breakfast.  It usually ends up being banana, gluten free cereal or oatmeal and quinoa with brown sugar.  At daycare, they sometimes have muffins for breakfast and I felt bad that she could never… MORE

A couple of months ago, I caught a cold and it lasted for about a month.  Right when I was getting better, I caught a second cold!  I think I am almost better now but I still have an occasional cough. During that month of illness, I was so frustrated at my immune system and started reading up… MORE

About Me
I am a wife and a new mom. My husband and I both work full time and are also very involved with our church so our schedules fill up fast! I enjoy cooking but because of my schedule, I need to find easy and quick recipes. I also enjoy watching TV and scrapbooking, but these days when I have free time, I usually sleep!
My favorite things to cook
Anything that is fast and delicious! I love slow cooker recipes because the are quick to prepare and ready by the time we get home!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is a great cook and always made Chinese food for us growing up. I tried to learn from her growing up but still need to call her once in awhile for tips.
My cooking triumphs
I don't have one yet. I'm hoping that one day, I will have the guts to host a Thanksgiving dinner and make every single dish.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list! I grew up eating everything on my plate so even if something doesn't turn out perfect, I try to finish it. But there are times when the food is just too disgusting and I have to throw it out!
