About this Cook
I'm living in Guangzhou, China, and have spent over 2 years of my meager 23 years of existence living abroad, literally an ocean away from my friends and family. Not only do I miss my mom's hugs, but I'd also kill for a platter of her enchiladas.
My favorite things to cook
Right now, anything western. Biscuits and gravy, Mexican food, pancakes, waffles if I could, corned beef and cabbage, anything that requires baking (but without meat floss), and any and all dishes that utilize cheese. But, I also have a soup fetish. I cannot resist a warm bowl of soup, so long as it doesn't have a chicken head floating in it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father and I ALWAYS creating Thanksgiving and Christmas mashed potatoes together. Baking German Pancakes with my mom. Dad's Dutch Oven Dinners and Cowboy Cooking. Homemade Hot Chocolate only on Christmas morning.
My cooking triumphs
A green pepper stuffed with homemade salsa, blackened chicken, and mom's guacamole recipe, topped with shredded cheddar cheese. It was the closest thing to a real Mexican dinner my boyfriend and I could make without tortillas or sour cream, and it was awesome!
My cooking tragedies
In the two weeks we have lived in our new apartment since moving from Changzhou to Guangzhou I have managed to melt not one but TWO water boilers. As my boyfriend likes to tease me, I burn water.

Broiled Vegetable Sandwiches
This was fantastic! I'm living abroad with a kitchen that has no stove/toaster oven, so I briefly stir-fried the vegetables in the olive oil (2-3 minutes), toasted the bread over the stove (watch carefully! I obliterated one piece because I wasn't paying attention), and topped it with finely shredded cheddar cheese. It was a hit with my boyfriend and definitely something I will make again, especially considering it took about fifteen minutes from start to finish (and I'm still slow at chopping vegetables).

Salsa is the fresh condiment you can make at home and put on everything.
