Andrea Giang

Welcome to my site!

My name is Andrea. I’m a registered dental hygienist with an obsession with food. I can’t stop talking about it (ask my friends!) or looking for my next favorite dish whether it’s from a restaurant or made in my own kitchen. While I’m not working in a dental office, I can be found cooking and photographing food in my kitchen.

This blog will feature tons of recipes, weekly finds, blogging tips, and occasional peeks into my personal life.

I hope that you will enjoy browsing through my blog and experimenting with food recipes. I know that it can be difficult to find time to cook when you’re balancing so many other things in your life, but my hope is that you will find that cooking can be fun, relatively simple, and stress free. Because really, why would we want to add extra stress in our lives, right?

I want my readers to be able to have fun cooking as well as enjoy what they eat. After all, what’s the point of eating if you don’t like what you eat? Which means just because I use certain ingredients in my recipe does not mean that you can’t substitute in some of your favorite ingredients. I’ll even make suggestions for inspiration.

Anyways, have fun and enjoy yourselves!

If you have questions or comments and would like to contact me, please feel free to email me at cookingwithawallflower@gmail.com, message me on Facebook, or send me a Tweet. I’m sure we’ll get to know each other well really soon! =)

    Hi Andrea,

    The photography and recipes on Cooking with a Wallflower look absolutely delicious! I stumbled upon them because of your Shrimp Zucchini Noodles with Peanut Sauce recipe. Would you be open to House of Tsang posting the photo and recipe on its Facebook page? Giving you credit and linking to your website, of course.

    Let me know if this is something you would be open to.

    Hi Andrea, thank you so much for popping by my blog! I’m so new to this and have so much to learn, but its proving a great adventure, although a little scary at times. Support from established bloggers like yourself is invaluable, so cheers!

    Also, I love what you have to say about food, it’s so true, we need to get back to enjoying the eating, as much as the cooking. I’m going to enjoy sitting back with a good cuppa, having a good read of your posts, bliss!
