i dont think ive ever blogged about my cooking… oh besides the evo car cake i made for pork belly’s birthday. yea surprisingly, i dont only just know how to eat, i can cook as well. in fact, i do like to cook a lot, but unfortunately, i dont have my own kitchen and i dun have anyone to cook for so i havent cooked for a while. i like to cook for people. it makes me happy. (eh do i sound like a grandma?)
this past weekend we planned to play majiang at my friend tingting’s place. i decided to cook. i havent cooked for at least half year and i never cooked for so many people, so i was kinda stressed.
when i was in syracuse for college, i was sick of limited food choices esp chinese food. i started to look up recipes and try to cook on my own. i cooked for friends when we had gatherings and usually got a lot of compliments. my dad, my aunt, and my grandma are probably the best cooks, i guess i got some of their traits.
beef potato braised in tomato sauce. i know this doesnt look appetizing but it tasted pretty good.
i seared the beef with hot dry peppers and peppercorn first then slowly cooked it in tomato sauce for two hours.
i know my food pictures usually look better than how they taste. altho my cookings didnt look super appetizing from the pictures, they tasted pretty good. at least my friends cleaned all plates. yay
i thought about doing recipes on my blog, but when i cook, its pretty much freestyle. i dont use measurements, i dont follow any orders or rules, i just throw in whatever i feel like in at the moment, so the dishes might taste different every time.
let me know which dish y’all would like to learn how to make, i ll try to write up a recipe for it.
i also made red bean soup but forgot to take a pic of it 😦
my friends bought desserts. how sweet
hope you all enjoyed columbus weekend and ate some nice food!
