Tofu in Dry Pot is one of my new favorite Sichuan dishes when I go out for dinner. The truth about this dish is the heat comes from the Sichuan Pepper Corn and ginger. The combination of Sichuan bean sauce, pepper corn, ginger and garlic gives you a strong flavor. The bean sprouts in the… MORE

Well, I have been saving the Halloween Pumpkins since last week. In order to be able to keep the pumpkins fresh this year, I chose not to carve them. Pumpkin Dumpling/Pot-sticker is what I used to have when I was in China. It combines pumpkin with roasted peanuts--the perfect… MORE

About Me
A simple guy in Seattle who is a Registered Nurse. I LOVE to cook and explore the balance between creative Asian cooking and authentic flavor with limited ingredients. I will update a new dish every week. Recipes are due by midnight every Sunday. Recipes might be updated earlier than Sunday. I will also post tips on Asian cooking periodically...
My favorite things to cook
hmmm, what a tough question to answer! I should say I am always willing to try new recipes. If I am asked about what I cook all the time, that would be Szechuan (Sichuan) food.If I am asked about a specific type of ingredient, that would be tofu and vegetables.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Stir fry, I believe. I miss all the good food my mom used to cook for the whole family. We usually have one vegetable dish, a meat dish and a soup. Nothing is better than mother's food. I am trying very hard to make my food taste like my mom's.
My cooking triumphs
Chinese homemade stuffed Tofu
My cooking tragedies
Cooking takes time. Cooking with the love that you want to share with people that you cook for is the key of making a good dish!
