About Me

Here I am... food junkie in LA! I love food, whether it's cooking it or eating it. Growing up in a very loving and food-savoring family gave me the opportunity to experiment a lot and through an awful lot of trial & error, I became a really good cook. I'm not the kind of person to just eat anything just to fill myself. I have to have the best food, full of flavor and somewhat addicting! 

My mom hates being in the kitchen. She cooks well when she wants to. But, if she can delegate the cooking to someone else, she definitely will. My dad on the other hand is loves cooking and he's an amazing cook and I've learned a lot from him. What they say is true, you know?! Practice makes perfect! And if you put your heart into it, you can do whatever you want. Food tastes so much better when you add some love and passion (a little bit of TLC) into it! I have always felt an intense satisfaction from feeding people so when I cook, I enjoy doing it & boy, is it a success!

Whether at home or while traveling around the world, I am always on the look out to find new ingredients, create or learn new recipes, and discover new and unique kitchen gadgets. They are memories that I will always treasure.

I invite you to join me on my culinary journey of traditional and modern takes on international dishes. Many people I know, who have had my food, have told me to take pictures of the foods I cook and make a cookbook out of it. But I wanted something a little more than that. So, here's my blog of my yummy recipes. When I started this blog in 2012, I never, ever imagined that it would grow to what it is at the moment. I never thought it would be viewed internationally. But here it is, and I hope to encourage you to have a love for cooking by recreating my recipes that are easy and delicious. Enjoy!
