I'm a 25 year old Chinese gal and pastry chef that was born and raised in San Francisco. I love to bake and dabble a bit in savory cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Baked ribs, cupcake, cookies...mostly desserts in general. I have a major sweet tooth!
My favorite family cooking traditions
During Chinese New Years. My dad and I make Nian Gao. It's not the one you steam. This one you have to beat with a wooden paddle. The texture of this dessert is amazing! It's chewy, but it doesn't stick to your teeth! Too bad there's no recipe it's all by feel.
My cooking triumphs
Making my first Thanksgiving dinner in 2006. Everything came out perfect! The turkey was golden and crisp!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made cookies, I just dumped the ingredients together without reading the direction. I couldn't even mix it. It was horrible!
