Welcome to SNS! My name is Stella, and I LOVE food. I love cooking, eating, & sharing recipes.

I grew up eating mostly Korean and Mexican food- two of the BEST cuisines in the world! When I think about amazing street food, Korea and Mexico are at the top of my list. There are also a lot of super traditional and refined dishes from both cultures. And the best part? We like it SPICY!

I come from a multicultural background thanks to my father’s military career. I am American, but both of my parents are immigrants from different countries. My mother is from Busan, South Korea, and my father was born in Guadalajara, Mexico

My food journey started when I was 18. I moved out of my parents’ house at that age and had to learn how to cook for myself. After a couple of years, I realized I was pretty good at it, and I became totally obsessed with food.  During this time, I spent hours watching the Food Network and asking my mom for her recipes. Cooking became my new favorite hobby, and it wasn’t long until I started to develop my own taste and style of cooking. I also really enjoy feeding people and seeing their reactions. It truly brings me so much joy.

Before this I was a bartender for 12 years and an accountant for 2 years. I also have a cosmetology license from Paul Mitchell. I am no longer practicing accounting but I still do hair & nails from home for friends & family.

Thank you so much for making my recipes and showing so much love. This space has had such a positive impact on my life and I wouldn’t be here without your support <3
