About the authors
Welcome to Easy Recipes Online! My name is Hai Nguyen and I am the main author and owner of this site. I also have two co-authors who have contributed recipes and helped me with ideas for the site. My two co-authors are: my little sister Susan Nguyen, and my cousin Caroline Nguyen. You can read all about us below.
The very original idea of the types of food themselves have existed for a long time. However, we have written our own content and we are the photographers of the pictures you find in the recipes (the steps and final product). Please do not copy or use the pictures on your own site without our permission.

About Hai Nguyen
My name is Hai. I have many passions… some of them include video games, web and graphic design, cooking, biotechnology, molecular biology, acting, jogging, and of course coffee. Being a student, how can one not love coffee? ;-)
To be honest, I am really a jack of all trades, because I love to learn about
everything. Right now, I am finishing a Masters of Science degree in
Immunology and Microbiology. I will be pursuing my PhD in Biology in a
mycology lab. I do love growing them, looking at them and also eating them
(well the edible ones of course). Apart from my focus on my studies, I am also
training for my first triathlon which I hope I will be able to do in the upcoming
summer of 2011. I am getting pretty strong, but I still have a bit to go
before I am ready.
I started this website in 2008. So why did I decide to make a recipes site while there are so many already out there? The internet is rich with information but not all information on the net is of high quality. Every time I look up a recipe on the net, I feel that there aren’t enough pictures to guide you through it. Being a very visual person, I wanted to make my own site and give my visitors high quality recipes with lots of pictures to ease the execution of the recipe. Hence I called this site Easy Recipes Online.
Young people growing up today certainly have a lot of exposure to the internet. I started going on the internet with the 56k modem, on the chat program ICQ, when I was 15. I feel that eventually there will be this shift towards electronic material, instead of having a lot of hard-cover cook books or a box with hand written recipes.
Easy Recipes Online is still so young and has a lot of growing to do. I hope that its presence on the web will inspire other web authors, whatever their topic may be, to publish high quality content for the web.

About Caroline Nguyen
Hi, I'm Caro- I was in the Biopharmaceutical program –medicinal chemistry option but I decided to graduate off with a General Science degree because it was not my calling. I’m currently in 4th year in the Accounting program. Complete 360 degrees? I would have to agree! But I enjoy the numbers and management aspects of a business.
My hobbies? I love biking, so I go whenever I have the opportunity. I also enjoy cooking and keeping my tummy happy. Unfortunately, lately the courses that I’m taking gives me no mercy so I’ve been pretty busy ensuring my marks are easy to the eyes. But I can assure you more recipes will come! :-)
My heroes? My grandma and parents. My grandma is a charming person. No matter what happens, she always manages to smile. My parents are the Vietnamese Boat People. I guess you can conjure up what they’ve been through. I admire their strength, their courage, and their determination. To embark on a journey where you don’t even know where you’ll end up or if you can even manage to survive is frightening. They are real survivors.
I live mainly by these 3 quotes: "A day without laughter is a day wasted" and "Happiness is a journey, not a destination.”.
Last: “God never said life would be easy. He just promised it would be worth it.”
Favorite food: Noodle soup "Hủ tiếu Nam Vang"

About Susan Nguyen
Hi, I'm Susan -- or "Snoosan", because I sleep so much! I'm your average 17 year old high school student who loves to bake. I enjoy every aspect of pastries, really. I think it's an art and love taking photos of food, especially sweets. I love music; almost every and any genre.. mainly alternative, punk, and kpop I guess. My favourite artists would have to be Paramore, Big Bang, Gazette, and Archie Star.
Hobbies other than baking and photography? Not many. I used to be an avid gamer, but for some reason it lost its appeal to me just recently. I like going places, anywhere, with friends or with peace by myself. I do homework in bubble tea and coffee shops. Oh, yeah -- like any other girl, I love shopping, too. It's a shame that I spend more than I make! I can't live without my cellphone/texting, either.
Because I am still on the journey of "finding oneself" (aka adolescence), I'd say that most of me is still undefined. That, and I hate writing about myself. Probably why my paragraphs are just clusters of irrelevant points.
