SpoonStix is a blog with simple & delicious recipes inspired from travel and everyday life. Cooking videos are always under 1 min (minus a few complicated ones). I created the 1-minute videos because I like efficiency – the truth is I don’t have patience to watch a 10+ mins cooking video on youtube. You will find recipes for AirFryer and pressure cooker too.
Hi there, nice to meet you! My name is Michelle, a casual food blogger and Londoner but originally from California. Firstly, I am not a professional chef or photographer, but just happen to love both as hobbies.
Why do I love food so much? It all started from growing up in a Cantonese household, everything revolved around food. The truth is that there’s something chemically magical about combining all sorts of food and spices together then eating it as a reward. Whenever we travel to anywhere, we always like to stay in local neighborhoods and explore the real and authentic local cuisine. I can happily spend a few hours in a local spice and food market. I’m a big believer that good food doesn’t need to be fussy or stuffy, I find most underrated local eateries are the best places to dine in. Why? Because it is all about the FOOD and nothing more. In general, I am not a big fan of posh restaurants – perhaps a little too showy & pretentious for me. Having lived in Beverly Hills has made me somewhat allergic to this pretentious “celeb” vibe, what can I say? Don’t get me wrong, I would still go if the situation arose but I just don’t have cravings or prioritize them. 🙂
Besides food & enjoying life, I used to work in the movie and gaming industry then became an entrepreneur in various industries. The most memorable gig was owning a toy store & creating a toy line in SF. Now I’m a digital entrepreneur in the hospitality industry.
For more instantaneous updates, please follow my Instagram (on the right side of the page) where I have recently started sharing food from eateries in London (mostly) and travels.
Hope you’ll enjoy my blog and videos! This is my hobby so I only record recipes when I have time. Cheers!
