About this Cook
My goal is to improve my cooking skills so I can cook quickly and to be hospitable. I'm trying to cook at least bi-weekly.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking a variety of food, but tend to cook American.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's Chinese & Vietnamese food.
My cooking triumphs
1) Cooking the Fragrant Chicken Curry for my friend! She really liked it and people said it tasted really delicious. :-) 2) Baking cookies for the first time from scratch! My friends and co-workers really enjoyed the peanut butter cup cookies. 3) Cooking General Tsao's chicken for my housemates. They looked and tasted so good that one of my friends thought I bought it from Costco. Haha.
My cooking tragedies
Using Chinese noodles instead of the Pad Thai noodles, causing the Pad Thai to taste like Singaporean noodles. However, my housemates still liked it.

Asiago Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta
I cooked it three times now. It is really addicting! You could use whatever cheese and pasta you want. I tried it with a mixed blend of cheddar and mozzarella. This is a great recipe because my friends and I loved it!

Gobi Aloo (Indian Style Cauliflower with Potatoes)
Remember to turn down the heat when you are cooking the potatoes. They get easily burn. I will have to try making it with coconut milk or adding water next time, cause it does taste dry like another reviewer says.
