About this Cook
As an Asian who grew up eating Chinese food and then moved to Taiwan for 10 years, I'm surprisingly very good at cooking western food. Because of a lack of affordable and easy to find western options, I ended spending a lot of time learning to cook my favorite dishes from scratch while I was living abroad.
My favorite things to cook

My cooking triumphs
Cooking a 5-course Thanksgiving dinner by myself for 25 ppl.
My cooking tragedies
Burning my brown sugar while making flan and spending an hour scraping the burned bits off the bottom of the pan.

Spaghetti Sauce with Ground Beef
Easy, painless, and tastes good. I will def use as a base recipe again. Maybe it's in the asian in me that likes to marinate everything... but if you marinate the beef in 2 tb of soy sauce, 1 tsp sugar, 2 tsp of Worcestershire sauce and a 1/4 of salt for 15 minutes before adds a world of difference to the flavor in the beef. It no longer just just tastes like tomato sauce drenched in flavorless meat. Also add salt and pepper to the meat (to taste) while sauteing with the onions and garlic and peppers before adding to the sauce.
