Anna Madden Cooking

Hi guys, I would like to introduce my new cooking blog:

And check out my story:

When I lived in Indonesia, I never cooked. Our helpers did the cooking for us or we bought food. But, when I came to the US, I had to do everything by myself, including cooking. My question was: how do I feed my family?

Many thanks to my mother-in-law, Cynthia, who patiently taught me how to cook. That is why most of my recipes are American and Italian food. Since then, I became interested in cooking. From "I had to cook" to "I love to cook." Cooking is fun !

Trying new recipes is my hobby. Sometimes I challenge myself to make a delicious dish (for me at least haahaa ...) by mixing some good recipes and adding a little more stuff. And voila ... it's a good one! It is satisfying to cook good food!

I still don't know how to cook Indonesian food. Well, I know just a little about it. I have been asking suggestions to my mother how to cook it. Thank you so much Ibu! Hopefully, my indonesian food label will have a lot of posts someday. :)

I am a very busy mother, so some of my recipes are semi-homemade. It means that sometimes I use store-bought food for my cooking. But don't worry, I still post the recipes from scratch, especially for you. ;)

I made a cooking blog because I want to share my recipes and my five years of cooking experiences with everyone. But five years experience is not enough to be called a good cook. Of course I still have to learn a lot about it.

Please help me by giving critiques, comments, and suggestions from all of you, my friends, so my cooking can be better. Thank you! I hope this blog is useful for everyone. Enjoy! :)
