F.A.Q's About Ryan

WHY DID YOU CREATE LIFE WITH RYAN?
“The women most important to me, from my great grandmother to my best friends, have been there throughout every moment of my life to encourage me, guide me and tell me that I’m still the shit even when the world has knocked me on my ass. 

I wanted to create a space for women where we can discuss the hard topics in life over a delicious meal and a strong cocktail,  just like my best friends and I do.” 
WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT FROM OTHER FOOD BLOGGERS?
“In a world in which everything is presented perfectly, a lot of women--especially women of color--feel out of step with everyone else's highlight reel. I think what’s missing is a voice that keeps it really, really real.”
WHY DO YOU LOVE COOKING AND WHAT EXPERIENCES INFLUENCE YOUR RECIPES?
“I love cooking because it's on of the few parts of my life where I feel fully in control and wildly free. I love nothing more than just spending hours in the kitchen experimenting.

Without a doubt, growing up in Los Angeles in a proud Black family surrounded by South East Asian and LatinX cultures definitely influences the food I make. Almost everything I plate has elements of at least one of these cuisines on it.”
