How We Became The Hungry Pandas

It all started in 2015, I had just moved back from my first year at college and at my new job I met Daniel. After embarrassing myself he asked me on a date…flash forward we are engaged and getting married next year. During our many years together we have shared many amazing memories but the number one thing we love is food, drinks and spending time with our family. We are no different than most of the worlds population. However, we spend a good amount of time experimenting with food and drinks.

I used to be a barista and bartender which has aided in Daniel and I’s love of coffee, tea and cocktails. Daniel grew up helping his mom cook some amazing authentic Porta Rican food. Most days Daniel has off you can find him cooking delicious and creative meals with my family (How lucky are we!). I spent my childhood baking with my mom and I have a passion of making new desserts and pastries. So, I thought I’d share some of our recipes for the many crazy experiments we make in our kitchen.

Thus the Hungry Panda was born. I am excited to share our kitchen adventures with y’all. My dad always says the bigger the mess the better tasting the food, so I hope you have fun when you recreate our recipes. Remember cooking is always more fun with family and friends. Make a big mess and enjoy!
