that’s not actually me in the above picture. while i adore pictures of food, i’m not a big fan of self-portraits. if you’re reading into that, you’re probably right. blah, blah, blah, insecure, blah. sue me. i’ve heard it all before.
above is a picture of a well-pampered one (a.k.a. “resident p.i.t.a.”) — our dog mushu. we live in north carolina, and i feel very fortunate to have a life with lots of laughter and good food.
i love cooking all different types of cuisines, and i will try to make anything at least once. if you have any suggestions for a culinary foray or just want to shoot the sh!t, feel free to email me at thecandidcook(at)gmail(dot)com.
outside of the kitchen, i adore all kinds of music, and i’m a big fan of movies, as well. in my free time, i go out to eat, hang out with friends/family, and find reasons to laugh . . . sometimes to the chagrin of the aforementioned friends/family.
my heritage is half korean and half american, and my husband is persian. consequently, there may be a heavy influx of those cuisines featured on this blog. some of our closest friends are indian, and indian food is a severe passion of mine. if you feel these types of food are shown favoritism here, indulge me. i’m sure there are many other blogs where you can find foods without spice (sucka). i kid, i kid.
thanks again for your suggestions and support! i hope you find something useful, and i hope even more that you feel inspired to try something new!
