Recipe from Hani Campbell

I stopped working since 2004 when I had my 1st baby girl and now I’m a full time mother to 4 beautiful young children, aged between 2yrs – 8 yrs old and a stage mom to my 3 daughters as a young talent. I’ve to juggle my life between wife & mother to my family. My husband, an American, loves to cook dinner for his family. I began to cook right after my son’s birth (2006).  

As my children grew, their taste for food began to change. My husband & I decided that we should feed our children Asian food. We wanted our children to learn more about the Asian Culture and the different kind of foods. When comes to Asian food, it’s my turn to cook lunch/dinner for my family. My children love to eat & they inspire me.
