About this Cook
Currently in the 8th grade in S'pore, trying to use allrecpies.com to find recipes of food that arn't easy to find here because the food sold here is geared more towards the asian side so sometimes it's hard to find some ingredients that are said in the recipes (Ricotta, ground beef, onion powder and etc.] or it costs ALOT of money so that makes me angry but most of the times, recipes I like usually have the ingredients I have or the ingredients I can substitue for like evap. milk for heavy cream :)
My favorite things to cook
Asian-style food since that's one of the only things my parents would eat, but I like pasta ALOT, trying to find new ways to cook pasta. But my new obsession would be pie, you can fill it, pre-bake it, bake it with the filling and bake at the same time, make it sweet or make it savory and the only tough part is, imo, rolling out the pie crust. Easy much?
My favorite family cooking traditions
Asian food, more towards chinese food like rice with a few side dishes and occasionally some other type of dishes. Taking a liking to making pies now, especially pre-baked ones
My cooking triumphs
Making a double crust pie, properly. The last time I tried it with a chicken pot pie and the top crust was so not stable I had to fold it in plastic wrap in quarters just to be able to flop it on top and any attempt to make it stick to the side just failed but I made it the second time with the Oil Pie Crust and I managed to make the peach pie work :)
My cooking tragedies
Burning my chocolate cornstarch pudding, since I was lazy and I washed my container, but I didn't know it wasn't completey dry so there were some sugar molecules stuck to the bottom while I was letting the cornstarch to do it's thing, it burnt and made the whole pudding taste like smoke! In the bad way! I made it again with a dry pan and it was delish. Guess you learn from mistakes?

Vegetarian Korma
To make this recipe truly perfect, I'd suggest pre-cooking the potatoes/carrots though

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III
Followed this recipe to a T, and it was awesome. But to me, it was more of a two bowl cake, but the one with the dry ingredients is technically clean (heh)
