About this Cook
Recent college grad. Lived for a year in Shanghai, China. Love pretty much every cuisine I encounter. I'm a proud low carb and paleo cook.
My favorite things to cook
Chinese stir-fries, breakfast foods, anything with caramelized onions
My favorite family cooking traditions
Although we are all of European ancestry ourselves, my family's favorite dish is Philippines-style Chicken Adobo. We had a Philippina nanny who taught my mom the recipe. She passed away years ago, but it's still our favorite family dish. My mom makes the greatest Christmas cookies of all time.
My cooking triumphs
I've started cooking without measuring cups and spoons. In China, people really don't use them, so they're hard to find. While I was living there, I found that using my senses instead of measuring tools makes me a better cook.
My cooking tragedies
I made rice pudding once with the new sugar I had just bought at the nearby Chinese chaoshi (supermarket). Turns out I had accidentally purchased MSG! Needless to say, I was forced to abandon the too-savory pudding.

My Best Clam Chowder
Such a winner! Added bacon, as commenters suggested, and omitted carrots in favor of more onions and celery. Also substituted 2 cups heavy cream, 2 cups milk for the half and half. Also, I live in China, and I couldn't find clams with clam juice. I used canned smoked clams packed in oil instead. Added the clam oil to the veggies - worked great!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches
The most delicious pulled pork ever! I too recommend, as others have so helpfully, the pork butt cut (cheaper and so perfect) and to cook longer if you can. I did 8 hours instead of 4, and it was so juicy and succulent! Also, finding the right sauce is key. Err on the sweet side. You can always add honey to make it sweeter. I like Cattleman's original with some added honey. Yum!

Eggplant Parmesan II
Wonderful! Sweating the eggplant is a must, and I did two separate layers in the casserole dish (sauce-eggplant-cheese, and repeat) but other than that, this recipe is just right. I served it over angelhair pasta for a hearty meal and lots of delicious leftovers.
