About this Cook
Recently experienced many changes in my life. Just moved from Hawaii to a small town in SE New Mexico. Graduated with my bachelor's in nursing and currently learning how to become a labor and delivery nurse. I really miss home, my family, and sticky rice. Culture shock met me at the airport when I moved here so I have been trying to get accustomed to the food and the small town. Cooking has been my escape from stress.
My favorite things to cook
Asian food, local foods from Hawaii, and DESSERT of any kind. During the holidays my husband and I have a cookie decorating fest!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents are cooks by profession and I have always seen them cook for 50-100 people at a time. It was great growing up around great food. I used to be annoyed because my weekends were spent waking up early to chopping and my parents prepping. Now that I've moved away, I actually miss the sound!
My cooking triumphs
I make a mean local style fried rice that includes portuguese sausage. I've also inherited my mom's Filipino barbeque recipe that is to die for!
My cooking tragedies
Macaroni and cheese on first and second attempt but I will try again.

Blueberry Shortbread Cheesecake
Note: The pan used should really be a 9x13 baking dish. Sorry for the mix up.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style
My husband has requested this three times this month! To make it quicker, I've used a whole chicken already cut up and rubbed the spice mixture on it. I set the oven at 350 and in an hour or until the bird reaches 180 degrees, I have a beautiful chicken dinner. I baste the chicken with a little butter and and chicken broth. I've paired this dinner with potatoes but our recent favorite is some grilled squash from a friends' garden. A few times I haven't measured anything and just sprinkled the spices on the chicken, still came out great. On a whole chicken, I double the spices but keep the cooking time the same. Rubbing some butter underneath the skin makes it really crispy. We're having this tonight with some friends!

Butterscotch Bread Pudding
This is my go to dessert when I have company over. I couldn't find butterscotch chips this Christmas, so I made it with chocolate milk and peanut butter chips, it was a great subsitute, everyone enjoyed eating it by the fireplace. I have also made it without the chips and in replacement, topped it with a creme anglaise sauce, simple but delicious. Love this dessert!
