About Oh My Food Recipes
Welcome to Oh My Food Recipes! Where you can find inspiration for meals or dinner ideas, specialty Asian cuisines and our favorite foods. Oh My Food Recipes is tried and tested recipes with step by step photo tutorials and some cooking videos (more in the future).
The idea to launch this Oh My Food Recipes blog was inspired by friends and family members who always ask me for recipes when I post a dish on social media. Most Asians cook by experience and eyeball for ingredients like how much to add. I was taught in that way when I was growing up. And, I have never thought about writing down my recipes before.
As a little kid, I stood next to my mom or dad when they were cooking. I loved watching them cook because they made yummy food! Surely, I missed their food. I wish they had written down all those amazing food recipes. Food is a culture and is a family history. Therefore, I want to document and share my cooking experience as well as pass it down to my children.
Oh My Food Recipes Mission Statement:
Oh My Food Recipes strives to provide good quality recipes with step by step photos and a video tutorial in order to guide and help you master the dishes in your kitchen. And, enjoy different cultures and cuisines at your home.
About Tracy Omae
My name is Tracy Omae (Ohmy). I am a housewife, mother of four kids, photographer, cook and nutritionist for my family. I love eating, cooking and photography. Also, I write my own food recipes, style all the food, take all the pictures and wash all the dishes for recipe creation in our kitchen.
I started to cook when I was 5. As a little kindergartener, my mother taught me how to cook rice. Due to my father’s sickness, I cooked for the family when I was young.
Besides, I grew up in Macau (was a Portuguese colony), Hong Kong ( was a British colony) and the southern part of China where I learned about food diversity and authentic Asian food. I can speak, write and read fluently in traditional, simplified Chinese, and English. Also, I won a cooking creativity award when I attended middle school in Hong Kong.
Education & experience:
Moreover, I lived in Hawaii for two years where I learned more about cultures and food diversity. Then, I graduated from Brigham Young University, Provo in Exercise Science where I understand healthy food and exercise are essential for our healthy life. While I attended college, I worked at a cafeteria to cook and prepare food.
In 2010, I was into photography and took photography courses to brush up my photography skill. Later on, I focused on food photography and I am fond of it.
I am not a professional writer, but I will do my best to write what I know and share my cooking experience and food cultures. Hence, I hope you will enjoy them as well. Your comments and feedback mean a lot to me. Thank you for visiting Oh My Food Recipes!

You can find the video in the recipe card section. Or, you can click on the jump to recipe button. It will directly go to the video section.
Our video is just a supplement to the recipe. It does not have all the ingredients listed, tips and detailed information. But, the post has step by step photo instructions, tips and all other information.
Although I am full Chinese, my family are American Asian. They are typical Americans like pizza, mac & cheese, french fries, burgers, BBQ ribs, prime ribs, dinner rolls, and western foods. I cook different kinds of food from Mexican, Asian to Western style foods.
I am working on it slowly because I am the only one doing the work from testing recipes, cooking, cleaning, photographing, filming, editing and writing. Average a recipe takes around 60-80 hours or more depending on the complexity. Developing and creating a recipe takes time and work.
