who are you, and what are the two red bowls?
This little blog came about when I was in my last year of law school, living and cooking in a basement apartment with B2, my then-boyfriend and good-humored taste-tester. (He eats both my culinary successes and failures with dignity and aplomb.) The two plastic red bowls were his, and after taking grainy iPhone photo after grainy iPhone photo of meals I’d made in them, I kept thinking it would be nice to put them all somewhere. Well, it ended up being here! After how good those bowls were to us meal after meal, there seemed no better namesake than them.
Nowadays, the food that makes its way here is usually comfort food, and easy, with occasional Asian influences from my Chinese background and B2’s Korean mother, and a touch of Southern here and there from my childhood in South Carolina. All that I know I learned from my mother, grandmother, mother-in-law, and the Internet, so if I can make it, you definitely can.
how often do you post?
I try to post once a week. If my day job gets a little crazy, or our baby bowl a little wild, the posts might not be so frequent, but you’ll find new recipes here at least a few times a month.
how do you take your photos?
I use a well-floured Nikon D-610 with a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, in natural light. And occasionally a regular old iPhone.
