Hi, I’m Patricia. I grew up in Georgia with a Korean mother who cooked everything from homemade biscuits and gravy to bulgogi equally well. She rarely used recipes except when she baked a red velvet cake.
I believe this is why I don’t really follow recipes (and why I love red velvet cake). I may consult a recipe for general guidance, but when I’m in the kitchen I prefer to wing it. Recipes, like rules, are open to interpretation.
I currently live in California with a socially dysfunctional cat in a tiny apartment without windows. Well, technically there are windows. There just isn’t any sunlight. That’s right folks, I managed to find the one apartment in sunny California that has no sun exposure.
While I still cherish a perfect biscuit and a proper barbecue, these days I try to eat local, organic, and healthy foods but without the attitude. I focus on flavor and simple cooking.
And in the last two years, while dating a wonderful man with two children, I’ve learned a lot about cooking for kids without making too many compromises.
