About Me

I’m a Vietnamese-American living in New England, where there is a serious lack of good Vietnamese food.  I like to cook many different kinds of food, but I make particularly good–ass-kicking good–Vietnamese food.  With the help of a few cookbooks but mostly going on the memories of smells, tastes and textures from a childhood of helping out in the kitchen, I love to cook Vietnamese food and have a special place in my heart for the noodle soups.

In my non-cooking life, I am a mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, nonprofit professional, do-gooder, among a myriad of other titles.  Married for nearly 13 years, currently, I am a stay-at-home mom to two wonderful children, 7 year old Soup-er Boy and 2 year old Soup-er Girl.   Prior to the challenges of motherhood, I enjoyed a career in the nonprofit sector, working on behalf of women’s reproductive health issues throughout the world, as well as immigrant and refugee social services in New England. And going even further back, I seem to recall being trained in foreign policy and international security…

Update: As of June 2013, I’ve returned to the working world as part-time Director of Development for a health care advocacy organization in Cambridge, MA.  Oh, and now I’ve been married for over 13 years and Soup-er Boy is now 8.
