I am a stay-at-home mom and live in 100 Mile House, BC with my husband and 3 children.  I moved from Vancouver, BC in 2002 and started getting homesick.  I missed the lovely Asian breads and pastries from the Chinese bakeries, dim sum, sushi and especially my grandma's home cooking.  

This wouldn't do!  Because my family loves to eat, I wanted to learn how to make family favourites with fresh and healthy ingredients.  

I thought that this blog would be a great way to share my "tried and true" favourite recipes with friends and catalogue them for my children when they are old enough to cook. 

I recently discovered that I have a sensitivity to gluten, eggs, dairy, chocolate and red meat.  When I avoided these food triggers, my life changed!  My digestive issues improved, my skin cleared up and I lost almost 30lbs!  

This blog has a wide range of recipes as I am constantly trying different things.  I still bake with gluten, eggs and dairy for friends and family.  Right now, I am discovering the world of gluten-free and vegan baking so I can have treats too.  There is so much to learn!  One day, I hope that I can tolerate small amounts of everything again!
