I'm 19 years old with a huge interest in food. I love to cook, bake, read about food, grocery shop, and of course, eat. I'm currently in college studying business and communications, but also looking into culinary school when I graduate. I'm currently living on my own so I'm always on the lookout for fast, easy, and delicious recipes that are budget friendly, can be reheated, and fit my healthy lifestyle. I do, however, love a good dessert every once in awhile too.
My favorite things to cook
I'm always looking for new things to satisfy my hunger but I usually cook healthy meals. Chicken is a household staple of mine and I always have some in stock. I also love cooking with cilantro; it has such a distinct, vibrant taste and works great as a garnish. And coming from an Asian background, I do incorporate a lot of soy sauce and sesame oil in my cooking. I'm also a huge fan of soups. I usually make a big batch of soups on Sundays and then freeze the leftovers so I can have them for dinner when I'm too busy studying.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love having hot pot with my family every Saturday.
My cooking triumphs
I still have so much to learn, but as of recently, I think I have finally found the perfect sugar cookie recipe. I just need to brush up on my decorating skills!
My cooking tragedies
I can't bake cakes. They always turn out tasting like cornbread.
