My name is Yoshita (pronounced “yo-shee-ta” with a soft t that doesn’t exist in the English language) but my friends call me Yosh/Yoshi/many variations on the theme. I am a dentist who loves cooking and baking sweet and savory foods. While I am vegetarian, my husband is not – he is my very honest taste tester for all things I make whether herbivorous or carnivorous. Being vegetarian can be difficult when eating out so we eat most of our meals at home, which means that creativity and variety are paramount to happy tummies. I love to test recipes and tweak them to our taste buds so many of the recipes I share will be pieces and parts of others but their origin will be acknowledged. Some recipes will come from my family and my family friends – especially since my mom and mother in law are really great cooks. I want to compile as many fantastic recipes in one place so that they are easy to find and share with people like you.
I’m Indian and my husband grew up in a Polish/English household and we love different foods from all over the world (favorites include: Ethiopian, Thai, and Indian) so this is a glimpse into our adventure in food. I will share our favorite places to eat in the towns that we have lived and traveled. I will also share tips on how to keep your mouth healthy since that is what I do all day and am very passionate about.
We currently live in San Antonio and my husband, Michael, is an endodontist practicing in Stone Oak. I am currently a resident in Pediatric Dentistry at UTHSCSA and also working on my Masters in Public Health.
