Another week has gone by. I am somehow looking for a brand new week, perhaps it is because I will finally do something related to nursing. I was called by my instructor to help out in the lab as a tutor. When two of your favorite instructors want you to be there, you cannot resist… 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!
