Tell us something about you that isn't in your bio

I met my husband in an Indian cooking class. I always wanted to learn how to cook like my mom, but she never used measurements, and I couldn’t follow along. I still didn’t learn how to cook Indian food right away in the class (it took me years of practice), but I met my life-long partner and best friend.

Favorite feed to follow?

There are too many to name! But the allergy friendly accounts I love are @allergygirleats, @umpala_rain and @dr.vivian. They are all inspirational, positive feeds about living your best life with food allergies.
