Hi there! Welcome to Dilesia 🙂
I’m a mother of two living in South Central Texas. I'm the Founder and Editor-in-Chef of Dilesia, and it was born out of passion in wanting to share my love for healthy, fresh and practical meals. My aim is to provide thought-provoking, and relevant recipes and hacks for the 21st century. I want to bring back the glamour and fashion in the art of cooking, too!
I had a lot of questions about cooking and baking, and I was failed many times with unanswered questions on forums. I certainly scratched my head many times when I was answered with, “That’s just how it is.” It can be frustrating, right?
Dilesia is a creative stand-off between “delicious” and “Asia,” my favorite region in the world. The blog was born out of my frustration niche—to make sure that people understand not only what, when, where and how they cook and bake—but also as to why certain things are better off done in certain ways. I strongly believe that it is important to know not only the art, but also the science of things we do in the kitchen.
I continue to handcraft and curate interesting articles such as, Do You Peel Turnips? A List of 40 Fruits and Vegetables You Can, Cannot Peel, and A Few in Between, How to Cook Polish Sausage Wherever You are in the World, A Surprising Powdered Milk Substitute You Don’t Know About, and What Is in a Latte? (The Truth May Surprise You) . I have also grouped my blog into Cooking Lessons, Yummy Recipes, Baking and Kitchen Gadgets for easy navigation for you to discover delicious recipes, new and upcoming kitchen gadgets, and easy (and surprising) ways for you to upgrade your culinary skills. Once upon a time I would burn my butter in the pan—now, I am called a “kitchen diva” by family, friends and acquaintances. If I can do it, you can, too!
Come and join me in this exciting and fun-filled world “where sweet treats and good eats meet”!
