About this Cook
I am a 24-year old woman who loves to cook. I can cook anything and everything that appeals to me and that I think my boyfriend would like. People rave about my cooking and sometimes upon tasting my own creations I gotta rave about it too hahaha. Cooking is very fun for me and even a bit therapeutic at times. I love trying new recipes and having company over to sample what I make. Its really satisfying to cook for people and have them enjoy it.
My favorite things to cook
I try to cook healthy since I am a big health freak who has to eat a certain amount of fruits and veggies for every meal. But I have also been known to be a bit naughty and indulge in fried chicken and chocolate cake occassionally. I love to cook Mediterranean and Asian dishes mostly.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents always encouraged help in the kitchen and that meant learning little tips here and there throughout my childhood. I have been cooking for 12 years now ever since I was 13. One of the first things I learnt how to cook was a crabmeat and vegetable omelet. My grandma who was visiting at the time taught me how to make it and then after I remember making it as a surprise for my parents. My mother also taught me how to cook some really hearty soups that I still make when I need a comfort food or during the cold winters over here in the North Pole (Canada). My dad was kindof the sauce and marinade connosieur at home, I got my creativity in mixing ingredients and creating different tastes from him.
My cooking triumphs
Pretty much name anything and I can make it. I am a pretty confident and advanced cook and nothing is too complicated for me when I am in the kitchen! The best of the best for me would probably be my homemade pizza and Honeyed Salmon and sushi rolls, butter chicken and Thai coconut curry.
My cooking tragedies
After a hard day's work one day I came home looking forward to some good ol' fried chicken that I could make quickly and easily hassle-free. One of the simplest recipes that I have made-Oven Fried Chicken-chicken dipped in melted butter and then coated with crushed potato chips-failed miserably on me one night when I made it with skinless chicken. I learnt that this recipe really DOES NOT work with skinless chicken since I speculate that it is the skin on the chicken that fuses with the coating to make it stick! I was definately none too happy when this no-fail recipe that I held so close to heart had failed me, the result was some bare and tasteless chicken with all the crushed chips sliding off...no more skinless oven-fried chicken after that!

Teriyaki Sauce and Marinade
Very delicious! i use this as marinade for salmon, or thin sliced beef with some stir fry veggies and calrose rice, and heat it up and drizzle it over. Tastes like Edo Japan! i find it is better without the minced garlic though.

Chicken Paprikash
Not as good as I thought it would be. Would be MUCH better if chicken was marinated in salt and pepper overnight before cooking, much too bland. also the dumpling instructions need to be more specific. way too doughy and like biting into hard lumps.
