About this Cook
busy working wife as well as full-time online student. Never learned to cook growing up as we had a cook back home, had learned to cook when living with my husband as we got tired of eating out. Learned a few dishes from my uncle during my first few months here in the States.
My favorite things to cook
Still experimenting, like quick and easy stuff that require 2-4 ingredients only. Partial to mexican dishes and the all-time American entree = STEAK!! Although I used to make lassagna.
My favorite family cooking traditions
None, my parents dodn't cook while we were growing up, except for fried rice for breakfast.
My cooking triumphs
My husband actually telling me "Its Good!!" He's a picky eater and had used to complain that I cook too bland.
My cooking tragedies
Have a lot all forgotten :-)

Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker
I used bone-in porkchops from Costco, they are a bit thick and it came off the bone-in. I only made 2 pcs. of porkchops and it was enough. My husband wants more!!! I followed the reviews and added a bit of honey and doubled the sauce, I also added white wine instead of chicken broth. Aside from that, I followed everything else in the recipe. I had it set at 6 hours, my husband decided he's too hungry to wait so I had turned it off at 5 hours. I thickened the sauce with rice flour in a small pan and poured it over the porkchops and rice. Wery good. Will make again!!!

Kona Chicken
Easy to make.I used chicken thigh and drumstick with skin on. Used a little less soy sauce. I didn't have green onions so I used yellow onions isntead. The sauce came out too sweet to my taste so I added some shitake mushroom as suggested in the reviews and thickened it with rice flour. Over steam rice, it balanced the sweetness. My picky husband actually enjoyed it(more than I did) as he normally doesn't like sweet tasting entrees.

Chicken Marinade
Came out salty due to I left it to marinate more than 24 hours. Came out flavorful, will probably cut the soy sauce in 1/2 next time or use a light soy sauce.
