Excellent translation, great food, and a non-OP female lead! Sure she has a cheat, but she still has to work for what she has, still has to think up of recipes and make business-smart decisions.

Not bad. Everyday life. "The cheat" is very high. MC is OP 😄. I don't mind. She just like Kaguya Goddess send on mortal realm and help her poor family. The father and mother protected her and trusted her "reason" why she come back alive 😉

Good translation. As I expect from Volare team. Their team is awesome.

I am curious who is the Male Lead. Is it the Emperor, brother six, Qiao Wen, Zhao Han, Third Master or even the Prince ? So many handsome male were surrounding her 😍

So many... more>> food porns too. Thank you for the foods pictures 😍😍😍 <<less

I found most of this story to be quite adorable, especially the earlier parts when the MC is still a prepubescent child and the setting is restricted to the small seaside village she grows up in. Watching their immediate family break away from the evil step-grandmother and the useless grandfather, and working together (at MC's "inspiration") to build a better life is quite heart warming. Some spoilers...

While at first glance, even the MC thought she got sent back to the historical Ancient China, this actually takes place in a slightly... more>> alternate version of Ancient China, due to...
Spoiler

... the fact that MC is not the only transmigrator around. The current emperor and his grandfather are also both transmigrators, and they've already butterflied a lot of big changes into the annals of history. This is a Ming Dynasty which has built a great navy and preempted Europe in the Age of Sail. MC is the only one who got a golden finger with her transmigration though.

[collapse]

While there are a great many handsome young men who may have potentially fallen for the MC, she only ends up with one love interest. I'll spoil that now, it's
Spoiler

the young prince they rescue from the sea in the beginning chapters. Of course, he then disappears for 200+ chapters before returning to Chinese shores. Afterwards, it takes some more time before he realizes that he's fallen for the MC. And then even longer for MC and her family to accept his suit (since she's so young and the difference between their status so vast).

Also, even though he's not a transmigrator, the ML has a cheat of his own. He is able to read other people's emotions, and later, thoughts. People like transmigrators are immune to this ability, though. The way ML awakened to this power in his childhood was traumatic, and it was uncontrollable earlier on, causing him to have berzerker fits. Of course, MC is the ray of light who is able to bring him out of his berserk state.

[collapse]

The first half of the story takes place almost entirely at her home village and the nearby town. The second half moves to the capital, where the MC starts wielding her cheat and her knowledge for the betterment of the people (while also making "some" money on the side with her side businesses).

There are some flaws I personally found in this story... One is the weird reverse harem charm that the MC has. I don't mind animals liking her because that was well explained by her cheat. But all the exceptional young men in the story getting a crush at first sight on a prepubescent girl who's not even noted to be especially beautiful...I didn't think that contributed anything to the story, especially after it became clear who she would end up with fairly early on.

Another flaw is that while it makes sense for MC to sometimes talk brashly because her modern sensibilities have no sense of the taboo subjects of the era (like whenever commenting about nobility/the imperial house), it stretched disbelief that she'd always get away with this with no consequences. Especially after she arrived at the capital a controversial figure in the eyes of the nobility/court. Either someone with the brains and adult mentality like hers should know better than to speak loosely, or she should've had to face some kind of consequence at least once. But eh. This is something of a mary sue MC. <<less

It's still pretty early and tags are bare so I don't really know what I'm getting into. I would probably edit this in the future but for now...

Things I like:

Spoiler

    • Intimate family relationships. MC loves her new and old family. Her new father and mother are weakwilled but very loving. Her new siblings are much more assertive and clever than the parents. They all love each other, it's pretty sweet.
    • Cute kids. The siblings would probably be one of the focuses of the first part of the story so if you like reading about kids, this is good.
    • Cooking. Food is another main focus of the story. This is mc's main talent as of now and where she gets her money. There would probably be more dishes and ingredients described in later chapters.
    • MC is not op? Again, it's still too early to say, but I'm hoping she's not. Ofc, she's beautiful, it's hard to find average-looking MCs (mc's who turn beautiful don't count). Her knowledge is justified, she's mentally 29 and she didn't live near the ocean or mountain in her past life, so it's great to see her not knowing much about those topics. It's realistic, at least.
[collapse]

Things I feel ambivalent for:

Spoiler

    • Family squabbles. Common in cnovels and typical of transmigration stories. There hasn't been much face-slapping yet, though. So I'm a bit curious to know how that's going to happen.
    • Cheat. We don't know how strong the cheat is yet, since it tired itself out after saving MC from death. Hopefully, it's not too all-powerful.
[collapse]

Things I feel cautious of:

Spoiler

    • So far, we have a prince, a restaurant owner, and a mountain hunter as flowerboys that MC has met. As MC is an 8-year old, there's no sign of romance yet. However, I avoid reverse harems, harems, and love triangles in general because it's really not my cup of tea. Even if it's not a harem, just reading how a lot of side characters fall in love with the MC is very tiring for me. I personally hope this wouldn't be like that, but I know there are some who do, so I'll give a heads up if it is like that.
[collapse]

Thanks to the translator for good quality translations, fast updates, and pictures of food!

Edit: June 22 2019

Spoiler

There are more tags now, so I guess I know more or less what I'm getting into.

Thanks to charysa for clearing up some points. Knowing there would be pseudo reverse harem charm, makes me feel conflicted. I'll keep reading for now, but hopefully it's not too bad.

I can't for some part appreciate this novel due to inconsistencies. One most noticeable thing are the Yu siblings. They were introduced to be kids around 8-10 years old. But there are times where Xiaocao's siblings spoke like they were adults. Here are some instances:

... more>>
Spoiler

"Don't... " Her older twin sister, Yu Xiaolian, secretly rolled her eyes, "If you caught more, then it would be even less likely for us to eat anything. You didn't get to see grandmother's pained expression when we needed to pay for the medical fees. She would surely find ways to make up for the loss, while also doubling the earnings."

[collapse]

And another one:

Spoiler

Yu Hang held back his youngest sister's eagerness and politely said, "Business is about the mutual willingness between the two parties. It's natural for the seller to set a price and the buyer to bargain. Even if the deal doesn't work out, we can still maintain a benevolent relationship. We have nothing more to say since Manager Liu didn't like our goods. Please excuse us!"

[collapse]

Not only they talked like adults but they also sound like enducated people which is really contrast to the author's introduction of family living on the sea side. Also the author points out that Yu Hai (their father) deeply pampers them yet allows his family to be bullied by the step mom and eldest daughter in law. What a contradiction.

Initially, the cheat is already a minus for me. But since there are lots of good reviews, I thought I should try. However, there are no characters or events piquing my interest so far. Now, these inconsitencies in the story that's making me roll eyes everytime I encounter one. I'll read a few chapters more but if it didn't get better, I might drop.

EDIT:

Ok. After reading a few more chapters, I managed to reach the latest chapter by ignoring the inconsistent stuff.

So the story turned to be a little interesting. Lots of potential male lead were introduced with no certainty who's the real one. Currently, the pacing is soooooo sloowww because there are lots of cooking scenes and the process of making them.

And I'm not so thrilled of the idea that
Spoiler

the emperor is also a transmigrator

[collapse]

The thing that keeps me going on is the MC and her twin sister. Alright, this might not sound interesting but I'm curious why they are twins in the first place and the author's deliberate avoidance to let them go together outside the fishing village. What's the catch?

Other than that, there's no other interesting thing here. It's pretty much predictable. The author has a habit of leaving a clue sometime so you can already predict what's gonna happen. <<less

Casual review so I won't cover all the points

    • So far I really like her intimate family especially the father which is really are in this genre since dads are usually cold and or abusive.
    • Imo doesn't seem op compared to other novels and
      Spoiler

      the source of MC's "cheats" are "explained" to her family

      [collapse]
    • Pretty interesting since she didn't transmigrate to a whole new world and there might be transmigrators other than her.
    • Love that she actually have nice siblings esp the sister
    • The raws are 730+ so I wonder how the plot will evolve to last that long

After many transmigraters, I had read, this one is another new taste.

The most I like is MC’s father, may be he is the first I read that love MC (his daughter) in all many novels and her siblings also love each other.

Thank you for translations.

I really like this novel, mostly due to the food porn. This reminds me of when I was reading Transmigrator meets Reincarnator. Although some of the food descriptions are lost during MTL but still can't help but drool to the list of foods that were introduced in the novel.

The next thing that I loved in this novel is the interactions between the ML and FL, so much dogfood are thrown in lol. And those last few chapters of the novel makes me a bit quite teary eyed.

... more>>
Spoiler

Both of them died at the same time due to old age. Then FL went back to modern age and they meet again. Or maybe I just became teary eyed due to the long hours reading this novel lol

[collapse]

Overall this is a very good novel to read, and I'll definitely read this again once this is fully translated. :) <<less
