Graphic Designer, Artist, Foodie
Welcome to my little home here on the internet. Here you will find everything I love, from anything food related to the arts…maybe a little fusion of both. I’m a mom to two wonderful little girls and a wife to a husband who shares the same love for creativity and imagination…as for food, I think I may love food a lot more than him…
I’m a graphic design with a huge love for food.
I ’ve had hungryviki.com since my sophomore year in college. I’m going to date myself here and say that is over 15 years ago. Since the beginning, the site has gone through dozens of changes, mostly a personal blog site. It had always displayed my love for food, art, music, and a little about random everyday-things I do. The site went dormant when life got busy. Fast forward to today, I wanted to bring it back to life and fill it with all the things I’m passionate about.
I literally have thousands of food photos starting from the first time I got my own digital camera. I’ve documented over almost two decades worth of things I cooked and places I’ve eaten at. I needed to do something with all those photos, so I decided to organize it onto my website.
Explore and enjoy. If you have any requests for recipes or experiments with food, please message me! I love being adventurous and taking on cooking challenges and experiments.
I grew up in the Northern Virginia/DC area and lived in Philadelphia for about 8 years.
In 2011, I moved out of the comfort of my hometown and to a city I’ve never been before. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I learned to live independently and learned a lot about myself in the process. I had lived in a strict household growing up and this independence and freedom was exactly what I needed to experience before I even think about settling down and starting a family. In those 8 years, I indulged in all the natural beauty of Philly and surrounding area…I lived right by Wissahickon Park, in a little suburban area called Chestnut Hill. It was a scenic and peaceful woodland paradise, just a 5 minute walk away from my apartment. Center City and the downtown areas were just a 15 minute drive away, where I would enjoy walks around the city, grabbing a bite with friends, or just sitting by the water.
Visits from my Virginia and Maryland friends were always the best. I know it always involved eating delicious food from a list of various restaurants compiled by them or visiting iconic places and parks in the city. There were a couple of months where I ate cheesesteaks almost every weekend, because that’s one of the first things everyone wanted to eat when they visit Philly. I’ve definitely had my fair share of cheesesteaks living in Philly.
Philly is a city full of life and art. I’ve made so many great memories there, and it will always have a special place in my heart.
Today I am back in Virginia, juggling a busy life with my little family of four. I moved back for my parents, as they are getting older now and wishes to be close to me and their grandkids. Now I enjoy cooking and learning new dishes for my family and just taking in this new chapter of my life. The photo on the right pretty much sums up my current life!
