Hi! Thanks so much for visiting my blog!
My name is Shion (although my friends and family call me “Shi” [pronounced shee]) and I’m a 29 year old, living in New York City. I was born in Japan, grew up in New Jersey, went to college in the City and have been here ever since!
I started a blog in November of 2008 that included all sorts of content including food, concerts, movies, books, fun things I came across…etc. After blogging for about 8 months, I realized that most of my readers (which totaled about…6) were more interested in the food aspect of my blog. They kept calling it a “food blog” to which I would adamantly reply: “it’s a lifestyle blog.” (Whatever that means…)
In August of 2009, I finally relented and decided to make this blog primarily a food blog. You’ll still see an occasional movie review or random snippets of my life, but for the most part, you’ll learn about one of my biggest joys in life – FOOD! I’ll post recipes, restaurant reviews, product reviews, and anything related to food in some way. Although I try to eat as healthy as I can by eating whole, unprocessed foods; I have no qualms about splurging once in a while.
I’m by no means an experienced cook in any way shape or form. In fact, making macaroni and cheese used to be challenging for me but as I got more comfortable in the kitchen (ie became resigned to the fact that I’m going to make mistakes), I started experimenting a bit more. These days, I try to create my own recipes or tweak other recipes to accommodate my taste, budget, and nutritional goals. You’ll find that most of the recipes on the blog are EASY so I hope you’ll try some of them.
