About this Cook
Attempting to learn how to prepare meals that (a) are healthy and (b) please both my Taiwanese husband and me while living in Taiwan!! It's easier than I thought it would be. ;)
My favorite things to cook
I love baking--breads, cookies, pies. As far as cooking goes, I like making quick low carb recipes because they are practical and healthy. Thus, I do lots of stir frying--which makes my hubby happy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
It's a tie--either baking Christmas cookies with my mom and sister OR learning to make homemade cinnamon roles with my grandmother.
My cooking triumphs
Probably when I served "dancing chicken" to my husband for the first time. We now call it "dancing chicken" because it made him so happy he couldn't sit still. That made me feel quite pleased.
My cooking tragedies
I'm not good with fish. Each time I've tried thus far, I've failed. :(

Bok Choy, Carrots and Green Beans
Nice mix of veggies. I was looking for BokChoy recipe--so this one fit the bill. We had to add Chinese BBQ sauce to add a bit a flavor. Next time, I'll start with a clove or two of garlic and add the BBQ sauce while everything is still in the wok.
