This though, is strictly a (yep, you guessed it) one of a kind cooking blog! Huzza!
Okay yeah, it's been done before. And yes, I plead guilty to having watched Julie&Julia, and I really like taking pictures of food. But I don't see any rules here saying that another Asian girl can't start her own cooking blog just because 9023847912831 people have already done so. This isn't some exclusive social-network-esque club or whatever, so ha.
Why am I doing this? Well, to be honest, I've been inspired to get more serious about cooking...many times. But even though it's an on-and-off kind of relationship, I figure that the times I do miraculously don an apron and actually start cutting things, that I should seriously document it (practically speaking, also good to take notes on what worked and didn't work for future reference). Being a college student on the verge of entering the "real world" (whatever that means), it's ever more important that I enter that world, if ill-equipped, at least on a full stomach.
I also happen to be a very rare subspecies of Asian that does not eat meat. That's right folks, a wild Asian Vegetarian appeared! In all honesty though, being vegetarian is almost as easy as
It's really the Asian part that kicks me in the butt (isn't it always? sigh...). While my friends at school are happily planning future tofu parties and indian buffet outings, my parents are here griping at me every. single. day. It's like they think that one day, after asking me once again "WHY AREN'T YOU EATING MEAT YOU'RE SO ANNOYING BLAH BLAH BLAH" I'll magically turn around and say, O-em-Gee you guys are totally right and I DON'T know why I am so stupid to not eat meat, so who's up for steak?!
I'm not really exaggerating, but I'll give my parents their due credit. At least their evolutionary-parental instincts are not letting me starve to death. But still, I think it's a good investment, both for when I am at home and school, to learn how to cook some vegetarian-dishes for myself (Am also pretty sure my food will taste slightly better because I will be substituting parent's annoying asian-gripe-age-vibes with hippie~*l0v3*~*)
So here we go. Here is
*(note to self: learn to make delicious alcohol drinks as well, seeing as those will always be important no matter what stage of life I am in. Sorry I am not sorry)
