About

Thanks for stopping by!

My name is Anne and I’m a homemaker.  I wasn’t always a homemaker.  In fact, I used to work full-time in the marketing operations field.  It took me 12 years to realize that I hated the rat race, so I quit.  I started to cook, bake, and give myself projects in the kitchen during my time-off.  My husband Chris (who has been my biggest supporter), M and E encouraged me to start a blog as a way to document and index my work in the kitchen.

Why Uni Homemaker?
My nephew and nieces call me Aunty Uni and they’re the only ones that can.  The name derived over 20 years ago when E’s co-worker (at a Japanese restaurant) accidentally called me Uni.  For some reason, when it’s Ann spelled with an “e” —a lot of people think it’s Annie.  Uni was a name I allowed my nephew to call me when he started to speak.  My sister Kimi thought it would be easier for him.

    • Hi there! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂 And thanks for the compliment. I really liked your Chinese Braised Pork dish, Chicken with Garlic Sauce & your Roast Duck recipes –it looks delicious! I hope to read more of yours too. Keep up the great work. –Anne

  1. Hi Anne. I stopped by to say thank you for the likes, follow and your kind words about Irish! I’m going to have to come back and look around some more. From what I did read you have a great blog! Cheryl

  2. Hey there! Thanks for visiting the Deerslayer’s Wife and all things “wild game”. I can’t wait to try the Italian beer bread. My daughters and I have committed to baking fresh bread every week. Wish us luck! I’m looking forward to checking in with you for new recipe ideas.

    • Hi! Thanks for dropping in. That’s groovy about baking fresh bread every week. Do share your recipes. Let me know how the Italian Beer Bread turns out.

  3. Thank you again for your interest. Looks like you’ve been busy reading. Also, this is the first time I’ve seen the widget with individual blog posts. Thank you for including so many of my posts 🙂

    Also, I noticed you have a lot of Asian recipes. Just your likes or do you have some Asian influence in your life?

    • I love your blog! I went back to see more of your recipes and they looked fantastic! 🙂

      The Asian recipes are both –my likes and the influence in my life. Cheers!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my post for Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies. It’s a fabulous recipe. I hope you are able to try it sometime and let me know what you think of it.

  6. Hello Anne! I have been spending some time in your blog and have really enjoyed it! I am currently a full-time marketer like you once were and as much as I do enjoy my job, I rather focus my time in the kitchen. I am interested to know how you made the decision and how has it been for you after. Also thanks for all your support in my blog I think of you often and want to make a habit of supporting other blogs too. With a little one and a full time job sometimes I see myself only posting and trying to grow my blog but joining the bloggers community and visiting other blogs is my number one goal this new year. Happy Holidays!
