About this Cook
I love cooking and have found that my most fondest memories are tied back to food. Food brings the family together, keeps friends close and allows me to be creative. I love the spontaneity of adding new ingredients and creating a new dish from scratch.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy one-pot cooking. I love creating new pasta dishes. Casseroles are comfort. I love baking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mini pecan tarts at Christmas. A big pot of filipino sour-soup (Sinigang)in the winter. BBQ-ing on Sundays. Chocolate chip cookie baking with my little boys. Shabu-shabu with my mom. Tea-time with my sister.
My cooking triumphs
I finally learned how to roast a whole chicken. Hallelujah!
My cooking tragedies
Dropping an entire bottle of ground pepper into my pot of spaghetti sauce. Slow cooking leeks and chicken and ending up with something that tasted like slow cooked licorice chicken. Yech!

Lemon Bars I
yummy! it has a sweet and mild tart flavor- it's not a lemon bar that will make your cheeks pucker up! perfect with a cup of tea.
