The name Gidget comes from a movie where Sandra Dee plays a short tomboy who hung out with the guys. Girl + Midget = Gidget. That’s me, the Asian edition.
I am a Midwest girl married to a Southern boy. I like to cook and eat, he’s a bigger fan of the eating part.
This blog was started so my family and friends could keep up with our newlywed life, and food became a naturally reoccurring subject. As an outsider transplanted to Jackson, Mississippi I’ve enjoyed discovering the city through the food it has to offer and document my stories here. Eating well is a high priority in the South.
I believe it’s important to sit down, enjoy meals with people and not answer the phone during dinner. Cooking is my therapy and seeing others enjoy something I’ve made is very satisfying.
I try my best to eat fresh, locally, and as purely as possible. I like to know where my food comes from and what exactly is in it. Then again a Moon Pie, Cheez-Its, or a dipped cone from Dairy Queen never hurt anyone.
My husband and I like to travel, play sports and steal bits off each other’s plates. To balance out my passion for food I can often be found running outside, on the tennis court or in a yoga class.
Currently I’m planning on running the 2011 Rock ‘n’ Roll Mardi Gras half marathon in New Orleans. Done and done!
