I'm too lazy to cook most of the time. But when I do, I get a kick out of it.
My favorite things to cook
Whatever I caught for the day (or whatever my dad caught)
...and everything else. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade dumplings and zongzi (sticky rice dumplings wrapped in bamboo leaves). My family can easily spend a whole day making everything from scratch.
My cooking triumphs
A co-worker gave me one of the fish he caught for the day. I wasn't exactly sure how to cook it. As I was starving, I hastily prepped the fish with random ingredients from the pantry (literally) and threw it in the oven. And it tasted great! Too bad I can't recreate the recipe now because I had no idea how much of what I used.
My cooking tragedies
I accidentally poured a mountain of salt while stir frying green bell peppers with pork and garlic when I was 8. And I totally thought it was okay and my grandma ate a bite of it and was like "FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF WHAT DLGJDSKLFJDSL HOW MUCH SALT DID LDKJFLDSKFJDLSK YOU KLDJFKLDJF PUT KHADKLF IN LJDFKLJFS HERE"
