About Lauren


My food philosophy:

1. You are what you eat and I want to be delicious. (Zombies deserve a good meal, too.)

2. If number one is true, then you probably want to eat real food as much as possible. Don’t be an artificial flavoring.

3. Cooking and eating should be fun and enjoyable and experimental. You should learn about new ingredients and throw parties and eat ice cream in direct sunlight.

    So my first website detailing my cupcakes is up! :)
    Like I said, I’m going to enjoy looking back on this and laughing in 5, 10, 15 years. BUT we all have to start somewhere

    Thanks Lauren!

    Asian food is every bit as diverse as it is delicious. I used to think that I knew Asian foods growing up. You see, we used to go out to Chinese and practically every weekend. They were a couple Chinese restaurants in the neighborhood, and they were perfect for us kids. They were greasy, flavorful, and we got a cookie at the end of every meal. What more could a child ask for?..
