  23. Family Recipes from a Chinese-American (and REALLY not complicated)

  24. recipes. They are like what you find in a Chinese restaurant in America.

  25. Some of the recipes though are those made for the Chinese customers. But

  26. really BEST OF ALL are the truly wonderful stories of the author's

  27. family's experience. "After... there was always a struggle to see who

  28. got to enjoy the fish head, which contains the highly prized cheek meat.

  29. I was taught as a young child to extract the cheeks with my chopstick

  30. and place them dutifully in my mother's bowl as my filial gift to her.

  31. Every adult at the table would then nod with approval, and I knew that I

  32. was on the right path." I really enjoyed this book!
