About Oh My Food Recipes
Welcome to Oh My Food Recipes! Where you can find inspiration for meals or dinner ideas specialty Asian cuisines. 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 love 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.
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 won a cooking creativity award when I attended middle school in Hong Kong.
Moreover, I lived in Hawaii for two years where I learned more about cultures and foods. Then, I graduated from Brigham Young University, Provo in Exercise Science where I understand healthy food and exercise are essential for our healthy life. In addition, as a college student, 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. Since my busy schedule I helped a client with some of her happy tummies cookbook pictures.
I know I am not a good 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. Thank you for visiting Oh My Food Recipes!
