I love Yunnan food, and I love simple recipes. Ten years of eating in Yunnan led to this cookbook. I want to share the simple recipes I’ve collected from friends and from trial-and-error recreating dishes from favorite restaurants. These are the dishes I cook to remind myself of towns where I lived, of people I miss — to remind me of places and moments wrapped up in flavors and textures. [close]

From the Author Edit
Candy making has been one of my favorite cooking activities since I was a very young girl growing up in rural Arizona, before the days of TV. There were not a lot of things to do in the long summer evenings and as a family our favorites were playing cards and candy making. We even made candy when it rained. Of course, the results were not spectacular (and taught me a valuable lesson about making candy in bad weather), but it was always fun - and even though it is messy . . sticky, gooey candy can be quite tasty to a child.
I have especially fond memories of learning to make caramels when I was about 10-years-old. The recipe we used, Inexpensive Milk Caramels, is one of the starter recipes that I have included. I hope you enjoy making (and eating) the caramels as much as I have enjoyed doing both over the years. It is a great recipe to use with your older children as an introduction to candy making. . . just don't try it on a rainy day (LOL).
You will also find recipes for fudge, fondant, divinity, chocolates, peanut brittle, and more! After you have read and absorbed the instructions and tips on how to make candy, you will want to start practicing your new skills. There are recipes for both cooked and uncooked candies. Each one is easy enough for the novice to succeed - as long as you remember what you learn from the book and follow the recipes exactly. HAVE FUN! [close]
