Cooking Is Her Passion

My #2 really loves baking and cooking. I can see it’s in her blood. It’s in the blood of the Yaps. Her dad, grandma (paternal and maternal), maternal grandfather, aunts, grand aunts and grand uncles (all from her dad’s side) love cooking and eating. Her grand uncle who is an accomplished heart surgeon in the UK cooks like a chef.  Another grand uncle who is an engineer bakes and cooks very well too. She takes every opportunity that she has to bake and cook. Very soon, she’s going to be a better cook than me. And I’m waiting for that day to arrive so that the Domestic Cooking Department can be headed by her! But Sherilyn claims that she is not going to be in the Food & Beverage line like her dad. She shocked me the other day when she told me that she would love to be in the National Service to feel what it’s like being a soldier and living in a jungle for months! Thank God the Government have plans in scrapping off the National Service in the near future.

Can you imagine having a daughter being in the army? A soldier in the battlefield! I know this daughter of mine is made of tough stuff but being in the army? NO WAY!

Last week before going for  her dance class, she quickly whipped up a batch of chocolate chip cookies.

On Saturday before Taekwondo class, she quickly dished up a new pasta dish. The sauce is made of tomato juice, avocado, onions, garlic and an assortment of organic mushrooms. She also discovered something new from her favorite cooking channel on You Tube ~ that tomato juice can be quickly prepped by scraping the tomatoes with a cheese scraper!

Today she woke up at 7:45 a.m. and cooked all these before going to school at 9:30 a.m. as she wanted to bring something wholesome to have for lunch in school:

Sauteed squids with butter, garlic and lime juice; sauteed assorted organic fungi with garlic, butter and cherry tomatoes.

She brought a big tub of salad with the squids and mushrooms to school for her lunch. Cass and I had those for lunch too and they were yums!

  1. you are very lucky to have a daughter who can cook very well at her age. Hope her intention to be in the national service will change as time pass by.
