About this Cook
I'm a young adult with an old passion for food! I love anything that spark my interests and challenge me.
My favorite things to cook
Asian cuisine such as stir fries, authentic thai foods, etc. Latin foods jazzed up with spice, cakes with delicious fresh fruit fillings and so much more.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love food. Cooking is what brings the family together...the women gather up in the kitchen gossiping, the men sneakingly come in and out of the kitchen for a taste because they can't resist the aroma!
My cooking triumphs
my first wedding was great :)
My cooking tragedies
haha a lot...but you learn by trial & error!

Turkey Brine
THANK YOU SO MUCH - I thought I made the mistake of brining a kosher turkey, I was so worried that it was gonna be too salty but it was SO MOIST AND JUICY! I did not boil the brine though, I just stirred everything together AND I added a bottle of WHITE WINE. My 13 lb turkey was perfectly cooked in about 2 hours...roasted it for 45 min at 350, another 30 at 400 and flipped it over breast side up at 400 for 45 min and it was perfectly juicy & moist.

Slow Cooker London Broil
Very tasty! But I slow cooked it in my oven. I doubled the cans of soups, pan seared the flank first and thinly sliced them on the bias. Put it in an oven-safe pan and cover with foil. I slow baked mine at 225-240 degrees for 4 hours and it was great. Just a tad too plain, so I'll probably add a can of sweet peas.

Nannie's Hot Milk Sponge Cake
I really wanted to like this, but it just didn't work for me even after making it twice. The first time, I used cake didnt rise much and was dense. The 2nd time, I followed the instructions carefully and it was VERY dense...wasn't springy at all. Sorry...I had to throw it out. I don't know, it might've been my fault but I've been baking cakes for awhile now. I might try it again but will have to tweak it definitely.
