Welcome to my recipes tab! I created this space as a place for me to store my parents' recipes. Most of these recipes are either Vietnamese or Chinese in origin since my parents are Vietnamese of Chinese decent. 

Even though this space is mainly for me, it is also a place for me to share my family's recipes with you. If you make anything, let me know. I would love to hear about how it turns out. 

Of course I think all these recipes are the bee's knees because I grew up eating these foods and don't most people think their parents' cooking is the greatest anyways unless they really couldn't cook? Growing up, we rarely went out to eat. My parents cooked everyday even when they were extremely busy. We sat down to dinner every night as a family and we ate almost every meal together on the weekends. Now that we are all grown up, these family meals are few and far between but their significance is undeniable. I will always consider the place where my parents are and where I grew up 'home' even though I don't live there anymore. When I go visit them, I can't help but feel a sense of nostalgia. When I take a bite of their food, there is no doubt that there is just no place like home.

As you can see this page is a work in progress so come back regularly for updates.
