I write songs, I sing them... I play the piano and a little bit of the guitar.. I've released 5 albums of music, I love the scent of freshly fallen rain and the scent of lavender on bedsheets. I would drink tea all day long if the caffeine didn't keep me up at night. I hate driving in L.A traffic. I would love to one day catch the squirrel that steals the plums from my tree and make him a pet. I don't watch TV anymore. My 3 year old daughter is more entertaining than any TV show could ever be :)

Kitchen Confidential

It's almost magic.
Taking all these various ingredients, feeding them
fire and water, wave your magic spatula, sprinkle
a little water and voila!
You have your dinner.

I spent the past week pottering around,
following my mother-in-law in the kitchen,
taking notes and getting my hands dirty.

It was delightfully domestic in a way I had never
thought I would enjoy before.

I can now add Sweet and Sour Pork, Wood Mushrooms and Stewed Pork,
Dried Chilli and Ginger Chicken, 'Shao Bao' ie. roast pork buns
and Red Bean Buns to the list of recipes I know.

Now, to whip them up, without the watchful eye of my
mother-in-law...therein lies the challenge.

I think there is a song in here somewhere.
