I just love cooking for my friends and family! I truly believe food is the cure for everything and it really does bring out the good in everyone, at least it is in my case. I hope to document all my food memories and cooking experience over the years through this blog.
My first true cooking experience with Vietnamese food started summer of 2000 when my mom went back to Vietnam for two months leaving me alone with my dad and two older brothers. My dad tried his best to cook everyday meals but we were all wanting more. I began cooking out of desperation but to my surprise I end up loving it. Now I am a kitchen hog, you can't pry me away from the kitchen. I leave you all with a few facts about me and my love for food.
1. I am not a writer and very new to blogging. Please bare with my writing/blogging skill. I will try my best not to be so confusing especially with cooking instructions.
2. I grew up watching my mom and aunts cook. They did not use measuring tools, instead they are constantly tasting their ingredients throughout the cooking process. To me your five senses are the best measuring tool you will ever have. This means I do not use measuring tools either but I will try my best to estimate the amount of ingredients I use.
3. As much as I love to cook...I'm very reluctant to bake! I really admire those who can bake because I do feel it's a lot harder than cooking. Baking requires precision whereas cooking you can change things up here and there. One of these I hope to be at least comfortable with baking.
4. Once I get cooking I cannot and do not want to stop. What was suppose to be a simple meal turns into a ten course gorge. I rather over cook then have people leave my house hungry!
