Hi! I’m Korie. Welcome to VeggieCravings!
This is a recipe website that’s all about using simple, fresh ingredients to create delicious homemade meatless meals that are quick and easy!
I was born in Vietnam, my family is Chinese, I was brought up in Australia and now live in California with my husband and son, who have become my two taste testers! Being exposed to different cultures helps me develop a palate for and appreciate different cuisines.
My love of cooking was inspired by my late father. He was a great cook who could dish up amazing meals using whatever little or simple ingredients available in the shortest time for our family of 7. His methods and simplicity of cooking quick and easy meals served me well as I grew up and had less time to cook as my life became busier.
Most of the recipes (not including snacks and desserts), will include at least 2-3 food groups namely, vegetable, protein, grain or fruit to satisfy your cravings, hunger and nutritional needs. I prefer to use mostly wholesome ingredients and minimally processed foods where possible with the exception of some irresistible desserts and snacks! Personally I believe that while it is important to cook foods that are healthy, it also has to taste and look good for you to fully enjoy it! Everything in moderation is the key!
I’ve always loved to eat, cook, read and travel. I studied Food Science and have worked in the food industry for many years. I have a passion and desire to create delicious healthy food so I can share it with those who feel the same. Come join me in my culinary creations!
