About this Cook
I love to cook. Right now I'm always on the lookout for great quick recipes. I don't have a lot of time when I get home in the evening. My mom was my greatest influence - I can see how much she taught me when I look back on it. My greatest accomplishment: I feel fantastic when I have played with a recipe and really made it my own. I was born and raised in Taiwan (my parents are missionaries there). I put that as my hometown even though I am an American since I lived there until I graduated from High School.
My favorite things to cook
It's so hard to narrow this down. I love cooking Chinese foods. I also love a good soup and yummy pastas. I really love dips and have a whole bunch that I love to make (and eat). I have been baking more - my husband loves dessert. I just try not to eat too much of what I bake.
My cooking triumphs
Here are a few... Chicken pasta with Thai peanut sauce: I didn't like any of the recipes I saw so I combined a bunch of them to come up with the flavor I wanted. The results were great. Pasta e Fagioli: I loved this soup and have kept improving on it whenever I make it. Now I like my recipe the best! Beef brisket: It turned out so good and I can't wait to make it again and tweak it to make it my own.
My cooking tragedies
I was making cornbread and realized I had no cornstarch. They really don't taste the same without that.

Chorizo and Lentil Stew
If you want this to resemble a stew/soup, you will need to double the liquid. I don't understand having chorizo with the spices listed. It was just ok. I'm going to stick to my usual lentil soup recipe.

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker
Awesome! Just awesome. When I removed the roast to shred, I poured the juice into a fat separator. Then combined the meat and juice and let sit for 30 minutes. Yum!

Bacon Wrapped Smokies
This takes quiet a bit of time, but they do turn out good. I like by bacon crispy so I may try baking on a cookie sheet next time.
