Pangsit was always a bit of a mystery to me; my grandma has been cooking for so long that she eyeballs all of her recipes and the way she folds these deep fried delights was too quick for me to follow.

So I took the challenge to submit my own attempt at staying out of a restaurant and away from premade meals for a week while keeping it simple! And while doing so, I tried to pay attention to what things make cooking easy and fast. I'm happy to report I've been back in the kitchen a lot more ever since. Here are my tips for new cooks…
