  1. As a beginner cook, I truly appreciate your clear video explanation and as added bonus.. you hv also attached a written recipe. Too good to be true for a novice like me. I like your simple approach toward cooking . We can get ready easily and fast especially suiting weekdays cooking for busy mothers nowadays. I can see that you are generous to share your knowledge to others. Thank you so much. May God bless you. 🌷

  2. beautiful, easy to follow recipes, well presented, could you do a video of chicken and pineapple with cashew nuts please? many thanks and keep up the good work. 👍❤😘

  3. The deep frying seems very restauranty and the flavoring is so super simple that it scarcely seems worth the trouble. If this is an authentic Chinese dish, someone please tell me where it's from. The only dishes I've seen like this are on American restaurant menus.

  4. I love eating healthy with super foods like watercress, Brussells sprouts, Kale, Landcress, Bok choi, Cauliflower, Collard greens, and Daikon radish.
