In Response to Re: Swapped Recipes:
Mary K.D, Google has a translation site. You can type your recipe in english and have it translated to Chinese. Print it out and give her both copies of any recipes. Also any instructions such as saute, braise, marinate, etc. that you feel she might not understand.

Thank you Wa-Ha, I talked to her this afternoon and we decided that I'm going to give her some cooking lessons. Bless her heart, she really wants to learn but how do you teach someone kitchen common sense? I learned by watching my Mother and Grandmothers. I'm hoping that she'll learn something from me. (She's agreed to teach me some of her own family recipes as a trade off). Her husband is from Indonesia and I am looking forward to spending the time with both of them.
