Once in a while, I think it’s okay to pig out, devour and enjoy our own homemade meals since we know what goes into the meal if we make it ourselves – in a reasonable portion, of course!
Born and raised in Indonesia, I am by no means an expert in cooking, let alone a professional chef. I taught myself to cook slowly, step-by-step, ever since I landed to the United States to get my college degree. To start, I was only cooking whenever I missed authentic Asian/Indonesian food. The college town that I used to live did not have any Indonesian restaurant and has only a handful of Asian restaurants.
Prior to that, my mom is always the cook in the household and I never really help out in the kitchen. I somewhat regretted now. Back then, I only knew how to cook fried egg, instant noodle and rice – of course, using rice cooker only.
Now that I am a wife and a mom of two beautiful children, cooking is becoming one of the “must-do” task; so I decided – why not create a blog today and make it a fun task. Also, this blog is intended to be as a personal collection of favorite recipes and, hopefully, as a keepsake for my kids so that they have something to refer to when they get older (already thinking something long-term in the future ^.^).
Also, cooking should be fun, creative, and practical. Therefore, you will find some recipes here that are not made “from scratch” or semi-homemade. By that I mean, occasionally, you will find me use pre-made sauce bought from store and develop into a semi-homemade meal. Or even, upgrading my comfort food (a.k.a “instant food”) into their 2.0 versions.
Well, glad to know that you stop by! I do hope that the recipes in this blog can also help you in some sorts. Feel free to give any comment or suggestions. It’s always nice to meet new friends…
