meimei baking… explained


Hey there! I’m Marisa, a third-generation Asian American creating recipes for baked goods that are inspired by my Asian American upbringing. I named my baking blog “meimei baking” for two main reasons. First off, mei-mei (妹妹) means “little sister” in Chinese, and I am the little sister of my two goofy brothers. Secondly, my playful little black dog is also named Mei Mei. Cute, right? I hope you will tag along with me on my baking journey and check back often to try out the delicious recipes I have to share with you!
