I'm a college student interested in learning how to cook as well as my awesome mother, especially in Chinese cuisine. I am also an intermediate baker since I don't have an oven back at home but had a lot of practice at school. I love to experiment and substitute things in recipes based on what I have on hand, especially for baking because it fascinates me on how the different ingredients contribute to the overall product. I'm mainly focused on making healthy foods, though, since I think eating well in college is a really good time to develop good habits while balancing life with work. But the baked goods are good times for splurging (with whole wheat flour and natural, unrefined sweeteners of course =]) And I am also working to improve upon my picture taking with my really bad camera.

I'm also newly a food blogger! I blog about healthy foods and recipes. Check me out at http://cleanpalate.wordpress.com
