FAQs

 

Q: How can I get in contact with you?

A: There are several ways to get in contact with me. You can leave me a comment here, on one of my posts. You can message me on Twitter @AmandasPlate Facebook Amanda’s Plate or Instagram Amanda’s Plate.

Q: Why didn’t the recipe work?

A: Without being in the kitchen with you to see what was happening, it is hard to tell. There are so many factors that can alter a recipe, from unclean equipment, humidity, improper measuring, uncalibrated oven, your mood (I really believe that cooking and baking with love makes a difference in the outcome). Leave me a comment and we can brain storm solutions together!

 

Q: Do you cook all day, everyday?

A: Not at this time. I am a Clinical Social Worker in a Seattle area hospital and I create recipes when I am not at work.

 

Q: Did you come up with all these recipes?

A:  Yes, all recipes are my own original recipes unless stated otherwise.

 

Q: Do you eat all the food you make?

A: My husband and I share most of the dishes with our colleagues and friends. We do try it first 🙂

 

Q: How long have you been married?

A: My husband, Hussein and I have been married for five years.

 

Q: When did you realize cooking was your calling?

A: I’ve been cooking and baking since I was a child and always knew I was good at it. It was an unsaid expectation that I go to college and so I did. After getting settled in my social work career, the kitchen became my way to decompress everything I had seen and heard at work.

  2. Hello Amanda! I am Abdul Azis, a Muslim-Filipino! =)
    My father is Muslim and my mother converted. What skills does it take to be on MasterChef? Ever since I was a child I dreamt of being in the same place as you were in MasterChef. What are the basic knowledge I will need in order for me to achieve my dream In Sha Allah?
