An Award!


Many thanks to Veena of Vina’s Delicious Recipes! and Fae of Fae’s Twist and Tango for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award! I am truly honored. It is so great to learn from and share cooking with such awesome people!

7 Random Things About Me!

  1. I love science! I really enjoy studying it and have a Master of Science degree in Biochemistry.
  2. I have the cutest dog in the world, “Pipi” a Papillon-mix. She said so.
  3. I have measured how loud I can scream. In high school, we had a book of records (like our own Guinness book) and set the bar at 115 decibels, 14 dB shy from the world record. Eeeek! I guess it is within the normal human range though. lol
  4. If there was one sport that I would ever train for to be in the Olympics, it would be discus throwing. I loved it in school!
  5. I was born with an already healed cleft palate–I have a small scar where it would have been. (Researchers are trying to untangle the genetics behind cleft palate–pretty interesting… least to me.)
  6. I completed a round of P90X.
  7. When we were little, my mom would often dress my little sister and I in matching outfits even though we are four years apart . Maybe it is because my mom missed the times when she dressed the same as her identical twin, my aunt. 🙂


Here are the lovely bloggers that I am nominating!


A Cougar in the Kitchen:  “My trifecta of happiness revolves around Family, Friends and Food.”

Lukasz of The Brave Cook:  “Amateur cooking, sewing, and more from urban Berlin!”

Maura of My Healthy Ohana:  “I’m a 32 year old full time mom and part time pediatrician living in Honolulu, Hawaii. I love good food, traveling, and spending time with my (growing) family!”

Meghan of The Tasty Fork: “Sharing recipes and inspiring others to stop ordering carry-out.”

  1. Dear Samantha.

    Thank you very much for nominating me. It is truly an honor. I also learn a lot of things and usually feel hungry when I’m reading your posts/recipes. =)
