I fall into the category of women who cook for convenience. I’m Dorena Long and I’m a work-at-home mother of 3 wonderful kids who keep me busy and grounded every single moment.

I love cooking, eating, but hate washing-up. And I lack patience good cooks naturally have, which is probably why I am always “short-cutting” my way through for the easiest and quickest recipes to cook for my family.

Over the years, I have diligently compiled a list of wonderfully easy and good recipes that has helped me spend less time in the kitchen, and spend more time pursuing other interests like my website, www.easy-banana-recipes.com. I also love travelling, writing, investing, reading and watching reality shows (which I am not very proud of). I can often be found at book stores in Kuala Lumpur whenever I am free.
