About this Cook
I'm a mother of three, super busy, but I don't like to substitute quality for time. I love to cook, bake, grill, you name it. I love trying new recipes. I like quick and fast recipes, but when I have time, I love to try tougher, more gourmet recipes. And baking always wins me extra points. My husband is diabetic, so we usually try to keep things healthier, although we like to indulge here and there.
My favorite things to cook
Asian foods are usually easiest for me. I don't really need recipes, since I grew up cooking and eating it. I also love Mexican and Italian foods and marinades for grilling or barbecuing. Beyond that, I'm pretty much a novice.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Like I mentioned earlier, I like to cook Asian dishes, namely Vietnamese, Chinese and Korean. My family is Vietnamese, so pho is definitely a specialty of mine (among other noodle soups). My husband is Korean, so I've worked a lot at trying to learn how to prepare all of his favorite dishes.

Butter Icing for Cookies
This frosting is very easy to make. It's buttery, soft and the kids loved it. What more can I ask for? I thought it was a little too sweet and thick, but that may be because I didn't use a measuring cup in my haste, so I may have put too much sugar.
