About this Cook
Born and raised in boring Edmonton.. Love to travel especially to the United States and Asia.. I would love to take a culinary adventure into Eastern Asia - especially India. No kids, not married.. Have a great boyfriend to cook for who appreciates every bite!
My favorite things to cook
love east indian cooking OOOoOOooo i could eat spicy curry and naan for the rest of my life. I absolutely love to cook salmon as well. I love cooking off the beaten path ~ it is a way for me to explore different cultures.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Of course Chinese food has always been a tradition in my household. My mom who is Filipino isn't as talented at cooking :( But my Dad definitely made up for it as he is truly my favorite cook of all time! We share recipes back & forth :O
My cooking triumphs
Salmon is my forte and and bringing out the oils and succulent flavors have become an art for me. I love to dabble with different infusions whilst trying new twists on old recipes!
My cooking tragedies
cannelloni... 2005... (sigh) I remember over cooking the shells ---- they broke apart of course while attempting to stuff them.. Went to the store, bought new shells and still they broke even though I under cooked them! I need to stuff them tactfully next time - I've pretty much said adios to future attempts for now!

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker
I did 2 pounds (2 tenderloins, 1 lb/each). I doubled the soup mix, water -- and left everything else as is. I think as other reviewers had indicated it came out just a little too salty. Next time I will add less soup mix. I cooked 2 hours on HIGH and the 2 hours on LOW. Came out perfect. Very tender, too tender to cut into medalions. Served with potatoes and veggies. My BF loved it. I will definitely make this one again!

Shortbread Cookies II
I will keep searching for an alternative shortbread recipe. I followed the recipe to the T. It was hard to cut out with cookie cutters because the mixture kept crumbling. Tasted good in the end, but not exactly what I had hoped after reading all the rave reviews.

Delicious Feta-Crusted Salmon
This was great. I am not a fan of dijon or balsamic. Tasted great without it! Thanks for sharing. The bread crumb topping makes it extra special.
