I like to bake cookies and cupcakes to give as gifts to my friends,�� I like�making treats for my co-workers. I bake cookies for the same group of people every month so I like to try new recipes.� If� I like them then I keep the recipe in my cookbook,� if not I remove it.��I have a few hard copy cookbooks in which I have graded the recipes to remind me which ones were excellent or good so that I will make them again.� .����Siince I am Chinese,� I usually am cooking�Cantonese or Shanghainess �dishes for myself and for my guests when I have dinner parties.�Since I�live in a small studio apartment , I only have�4-7 guests�� My grandmothers and parents taught me how to cook Chinese dishes.� However,�� I� do look up recipes� when someone� mentions that they have a favorite Chinese dish that I have never cooked.� I always change a few things in the recipe to my� taste , but the recipe gives me the basics.� .
