I'm always on the look out for a new and interesting recipe. I go to a lot of potlucks and events where I have to cook (charity things, school things, etc...) So I like to experiment and see people's reactions. I also love to travel and learn regional recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Bánh bao, bobotie, manju (anko filling is my fav), pan de cubano, egg foo young, chakalaka, Amish-style sugar cookies, party potatoes (aka funeral potatoes), sushi, sashimi, and Dr. Pepper Ribs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Working and talking together while baking or grilling outside.
My cooking triumphs
My bánh bao and bobotie are always requested. When I first made bánh bao I was nervous, but now I can turn out batches and batches in no time. I freeze the extras so they can be used to lunches or snacks.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at manju was an epic-rubbery-haunting mess. I'm surprised I attempted it again!
