About this Cook
I rarely cook...my profile here was the result of a holiday dinner at work which required a covered dish from each of the employees. I've recently moved in with my boyfriend so cooking on my behalf was a lot cheaper and easier for us rather than going out and eating.
My favorite things to cook
The double layered pumpkin cheesecake! It looks like I can really cook and every time I serve it--everyone makes sure it disappears.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family background is Chinese so most of the at home holiday cooking fests are bizarre. My aunt is a terrific cook but you never ask what is in front of you--you just enjoy what's on your plate.
My cooking triumphs
Still the double layered pumpkin cheesecake! It was the first big dish I ever made and it was a huge success. My boyfriend hasn't had it yet--saving it for when he's extra good. :)
My cooking tragedies
Some instant cookies where you only had to add eggs and water to...I threw in too many eggs and subsistuted buttermilk for water. It never became a large lump of dough as it did a batter for bland cake. I haven't brought the mad scientist in me out since then.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops
One of my husband's favorite recipes now! I did a little modifying myself and threw in a touch of cinnamon also. Thanks!!!!

Cheesesteak Egg Rolls
I wish I could've found some spring roll wrappers to make this instead but unfortunately, those are hard to come by in the typical grocery store so I stuck with regular egg roll wrappers. These were great. I also tried using the Steak-umms Chicken instead of steak and it was even BETTER! I used cheddar instead of American cheese. Thanks for great recipe!!

Salmon with Caramelized Leeks
Like some of the other reviewers, I also skipped cooking the salmon. Instead I made just the leeks and carrots and these were really good! Even my picky husband went back for seconds and he doesn't like leeks. Thanks for a great and yummy side.
