About ME

Welcome to my blog!

I'm Holly

I’m a working mom to an adorable baby boy, and wife to the most loving husband.

After the traumatic birth of Baby Chunbao, my life turned upside down as he had an extended stay at the NICU. I spent tons of hours learning and researching anything related to a preemie’s well-being, from infant physical therapy to how to produce more breast milk. Working with all the therapists for years – occupational, physical, and feeding- I have acquired tremendous amount of knowledge about child development that I wish moms like you can benefit from my learning.

I’m not a super mom, nor a perfect parent. I’m just like you trying to be the best role model for our kids and raise them to the fullest potential they can be. This blog is my creative outlet where I get to share parenting tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way.

What you'll learn from me

If I’m not working or spending time with family, I’d be hanging out in the kitchen trying out different recipes and cooking up delicious meals. As a busy mom, I’m all about efficiency so you’ll find most of the recipes here easy, quick, and healthy like the no-bake protein bites and almond crisps recipes. Also, as a first-generation Taiwanese, I love to make dishes inspired by my deep Chinese roots. You’ll find some recipes with exotic ingredients (often found in Asian markets) like my dragon fruit pancake that are both healthy and delicious.   

 Loris Malaguzzi, the founder of the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education states that “Our task, regarding creativity, is to help children climb their own mountains, as high as possible. No one can do more” Taking our kids outside, exploring all that a community can offer is a great way to spark children’s creativity and spend time together as a family.
