About this Cook
Grad student living in Hawaii. Wish I had more time and money to cook, but being a student is hard.
My favorite things to cook
Love to grill meat and veggies, stir-fry, and bake fresh biscuits and sweet treats. Love to make Cha'gio (Vietnamese Egg Rolls) and Mushroom Wontons.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Stay out of my mom's kitchen when she's cooking! She makes the best food, but god help you if you get in her way...
My cooking triumphs
Grilling Lemon-Garlic Marinade Chicken to perfection. Utter madness. Apple pies with no cracks in the crust.
My cooking tragedies
Cheesy Mashed Potatoes on Thanksgiving with my now-ex in-laws. DISASTER.

Airport Bob's Green Beans
The technique of cooking the bacon with brown sugar and butter is unhealthy, I'm sure, but it tastes crazy good! I'm going to keep this in my arsenal to put salad. That's really the star of this dish.

Anna's Chocolate Chip Cookies
My husband is very, very picky when it comes to food, particularly anything with chocolate in it. But he loves this recipe! The salty juxtaposes the sweet absolutely perfectly. There's a lot of butter in it, but hey, who would complain about that? I'm going to add nuts next time to see if that'll change the texture of the cookie. Overall, really soft and delicious.
