About this Cook
California girl relocation in China for 4+ years. We cook everything from scratch here- imported american canned foods and pre-prepared foods are expensive here.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cookies. Apple galette. Cassaroles with cracker crumbs soaked in butter ontop of melted cheese.
My cooking triumphs
Creole cornbread seafood potpie- our first meal cooked after getting married. I got the recipe off epicurious and it took forever- but was delicious!!!!!
My cooking tragedies
Burnt two different dishes in one day. Since it was snowing outside I couldn't open the windows to air out the kitchen!! yikes!

Christmas Pinwheel Cookies
-don't roll the layers too thin, otherwise when you combine them, it isn't very distinct -Use more food coloring to make it more distinct -refrigerate dough if its too soft

My Best Clam Chowder
a keeper! Made my roux with bacon grease and added a smidge of liquid smoke as well. While this recipe said 8 servings, it was just enough for 4 adults as mains, with spinach hot pockets on the side.
