About Day 7

My name is Kim, and I am based in Houston, TX. I’m Chinese-American, a follower of Christ, a daughter, a soon-to-be-wife, a medical student, and of course, a self proclaimed foodie and kitchen snob, lover of all fresh ingredients and novel recipes. When I’m not cooking up a storm in the kitchen, I’m learning about new pediatric diseases, memorizing medication side effects, pinteresting fashion blogs, oil painting, watching Ted talks, grocery shopping in Trader Joes, eating dark chocolate, laughing over bad jokes…but mostly studying medicine.

My Chinese mother inspired me at a young age to be self sufficient and versatile with cooking. She is a master in the kitchen, and is capable of turning the most unthinkable ingredient into a yummy yet healthy dish, like jellyfish, or watermelon rind. I didn’t start my cooking journey until half-way through college, and didn’t really muster up my efforts until medical school. But since then, I’ve been addicted, utterly and helplessly to all things food related. I have a special place in my heart for cross cultural foods because of my own East Asian heritage. And since joining the medical professions rank, I’ve also been looking for ways to make my cooking more clean-tasting and fresh, without sacrificing opportunities to wow my taste buds at the same time. With all that being said, I still look to my mom’s kitchen for inspirations. I dedicate this blog to all the giants in my family’s kitchen and will pass down their cultural recipes.

The reason why I love cooking goes beyond the taste or the techniques, and it goes back to what I believe about how God created us. He made the world in six days and rested on the seventh, and blessed it as holy. Day 7 Kitchen is about taking the time to rest in God’s glory on the seventh day and to enjoy His creations.

    My name is Y, and I am based in Beijing, China. I’m Chinese-Chinese, a follower of Christ, a son, a soon-to-be-husband, a statistician, and of course, a self proclaimed talk show host and dancer, lover of all fresh novel weird ideas. When I’m not talking to Kim on the phone, I’m manipulating data and people, watching documentary videos, playing batman games, reading history books, drinking beers, working out in the gym, eating wendy’s, laughing over poeple’s mistakes…but mostly saying yes to Kim.
