Hello friend (or-not-yet-friend)!

Welcome to my kitchen where you can find vegan recipes, tips, and tricks for making delicious everyday plant-based meals and vegan treats. As a Chinese Canadian, I grew up loving all the amazing international cuisines available in my hometown of Vancouver, BC including Cantonese, Japanese, Vietnamese and more!
