Another long week, why am I not surprised: I had both Peds and OB clinical rotation this week, and a test. The fun part was that we had pot luck for our OB clinical group on Friday, so I cooked on Thur night: Lotus root salad and a Sichuan tofu salad (coming up soon). All my classmates and my… MORE

It has been a very stressful week, even though it is only the first week of school. I guess nobody should ever think that nursing school gets any easier or less stressful, because it is probably never going to happen. So the desire to cook is still there. Unfortunately I have not really… MORE

I am from China, where you can see bubble tea/milk tea stands everywhere. What I really miss is a cup of good milk tea.  After I graduated from college, I worked in a city for one year where there was a certain chain milk tea store I really loved. Unfortunately, after I moved to the… MORE

About Me
A simple guy in Seattle who is a Registered Nurse. I LOVE to cook and explore the balance between creative Asian cooking and authentic flavor with limited ingredients. I will update a new dish every week. Recipes are due by midnight every Sunday. Recipes might be updated earlier than Sunday. I will also post tips on Asian cooking periodically...
My favorite things to cook
hmmm, what a tough question to answer! I should say I am always willing to try new recipes. If I am asked about what I cook all the time, that would be Szechuan (Sichuan) food.If I am asked about a specific type of ingredient, that would be tofu and vegetables.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Stir fry, I believe. I miss all the good food my mom used to cook for the whole family. We usually have one vegetable dish, a meat dish and a soup. Nothing is better than mother's food. I am trying very hard to make my food taste like my mom's.
My cooking triumphs
Chinese homemade stuffed Tofu
My cooking tragedies
Cooking takes time. Cooking with the love that you want to share with people that you cook for is the key of making a good dish!
