Over the past year I have been trying out recipes and stretching my cooking and baking wings. Some of these recipes have been posted and any variations have also been posted. However, some of my inspiration have come from other food / recipe blogs that I keep up with over the years.
SWEETS, SWEETS and MORE SWEETS
I’m a prime example that even the most imperfect people can create fabulous things in the kitchen.
I have no formal training, other than some cake decorating classes I took a few years back at Michaels craft store. I do some cake and cookie decorating from my home, and I feature those projects from time to time. Mainly though, I just want to present good recipes in a very approachable way.
I’ve been baking and writing this blog for about a year-and-a-half, but I still consider myself an amateur baker and definitely an amateur photographer. I do a lot of experimenting and baking for fun. I’ve learned a lot since I started, though, and I’ve definitely seen an improvement in my baking and blog posts. Hopefully I’ll continue down this path and I hope you enjoy reading about it!
VIETNAMESE (and other ASIAN) DISHES
SIMPLY VIETNAMESE: Vietnamese eats for today’s lifestyle
One of my favorite past time is to cook. Being Vietnamese and living in areas not well populated with Asians, I’ve learned how to make the comforting and tasty fares I grew up with by adapting the recipes with Western ingredients. Also with a busy career, recipes had to be simplified to be easy enough for everyday eats
We believe good food and cooking brings friends, family, and loves ones together—and keeps them together, hence our motto, Cooking Life Together. Raised in first generation immigrant Vietnamese-American families in opposite parts of the country, we both were nurtured with a love for Vietnamese heritage and cuisine. Our mission is to show you how authentic Vietnamese food is simple, fresh, and delicious. Together we share recipes that reflects our cultural heritage as well as non-Vietnamese dishes, experimenting with new inspirations from around the world. Our love of good food knows no bounds and our appetite is insatiable, so we hope you join us on our journey of cooking life together.
