  • At a young age, Melissa learned how to find recipes, shop for quality and affordable ingredients, and cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner, all from the comfort of her apartment kitchen.
  • In her adult years, she's become particularly skilled at scoping out the best Trader Joe's buys, ranging from new snacks and desserts to easy frozen meals.
  • Melissa never turns down the opportunity to try out a new recipe, whether it be for traditional Chinese sticky rice or the latest viral bread trend. In her free time, she can be found perusing local Asian markets and in the kitchen murmuring sweet nothings to her yeasted rising bread.
