About this Cook
I like food and people so social gatherings I organize usually center around sharing a meal or good food and conversation :-)
My favorite things to cook
chinese dishes like shrimp with lobster sauce, wonton soup, scallion, breads, carbs...desserts like black bottom cupcakes, rum cake, homemade ice cream, low-fat chocolate chip cookies, sherbet cake...homemade granola bars...infused vodka
My favorite family cooking traditions
wonton parties, hot pot, lobster cantonese style, chinese-american thanksgiving, turducken, corned beef stew
My cooking tragedies
putting too much lime juice into pad thai, and too much hot curry paste into a thai curry...had to throw most of it away! :'(

Easy Tilapia with Wine and Tomatoes
this was very quick and easy to make - husband liked it but I thought the flavor was just ok. the sauce is pretty tasty. I'd try it again but maybe with a different fish or chicken.

Zucchini Brownies
Did not make the frosting because I'm not a fan of frosting with brownies (too much extra sugar) but the recipe is delicious as is, even without the frosting. Used 3 zucchini, pureed in the food processor and there was plenty of moisture from the zucchini. The brownie was very moist and seemed to become more moist the next day. The batch is almost all gone after 3 days with 3 people devouring it. I'd be interested to try substituting applesauce for some of the oil to cut down on fat and also adding in espresso or coffee to give it a different flavor but that will be in the next batch.
