About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Anything I haven't made before! I try not to follow recipes to the 'T' but rather substitute, omit, or add to make it my own. I've tried to make things my Mom or Grandma make, but it never turns out the same.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom appointed me the "Official Taste-Tester" whenever she made something new or a big meal for the family.
My cooking tragedies
I can't remember any tragedies where I had to throw a whole meal away, but I have made some stuff that tasted bad... Over/under-spiced, slightly burned or under-cooked, and so on.

Hot and Sour Tofu Soup (Suan La Dofu Tang)
I've never had Cantonese Hot and Sour Soup so I'm not going to compare this recipe with anything else. I doubled the recipe, used extra firm tofu, and yellow onions (because I didn't have any green). At first it was rather bland and not very spicy at all so I ended up adding more soy sauce and chili sauce. I don't care too much for sour so I did not add more vinegar. Turned out very good!

Potato Leek Soup I
This was a very simple recipe! To make it quick & easy: I reduced it to 2-3 pounds of potatoes, unpeeled. Instead of running everything through a processor/blender I just mashed the potatoes right in the pot as they simmered. (This does make the soup a little lumpy.) To make it vegan: I used vegetable broth and olive oil (instead of butter). Season with salt & pepper and, folks, we have a winner!

Lasagna Spinach Roll-Ups
This dish looked & smelled great and was a pleasure to make until it came to stuff the noodles. What a mess! The only change I made was to use jarred sauce; I got so impatient after stuffing noodles I couldn't wait anymore! Next time I will add seasoning and garlic to the mixture, and use large shells instead of lasagna noodles.
