About this Cook
I'm Vietnamese but I don't know how to cook anything Vietnamese and my boyfriend hates the food, so I'm learning how to cook all other kinds of food. I go home to get mom's home cooking and I'm exploring now how to cook healthy meals and bake unhealthy desserts...which I think is a really great compromise!

Simple BBQ Ribs
I never made made ribs before from scratch and this recipe was so easy and delicious. It just wasn't specific enough so I had to read what others said and I am glad I listened to them. I boiled 2 lbs of ribs in a stockpot for 45 min then baked them as instructed. But after that I added a bit more sauce and broiled them for 5 min. I have never seen my bf "Hoover" meat so quickly.

Lemon Cupcake with Blackberry Buttercream
Cupcakes would be amazing with a different frosting. This frosting is way too sweet like everyone else said. I halved the recipe like everyone said to do and it was the perfect aount. However, it was the wrong consistency and again, too sweet. Maybe it would be better if you flavor it with fresh berries that have been strained. I tried to add butter and cut down the sugar but i just couldn't get it to be less sweet without making it too buttery. Maybe add heavy cream? The cake was good but the next day it was dense vs fluffy.
