Cathy decided to challenge herself to a two-year moratorium on dining out after a sobering experience at a bad beer garden made her question why she was wasting so much money on outside food. She chronicled her home cooking adventures in her blog Not Eating Out in New York, which inspired Cathy to write the memoir The Art of Eating In: How I Learned to Stop Spending and Love the Stove (2010). Next, she took a deep dive into her Taiwanese culinary heritage in The Food of Taiwan: Recipes from the Beautiful Island (2015) and offered a modern approach to cooking dinner in the highly regarded Sheet Pan Chicken (2020).
