Who Am I?

Hi, I'm Liang, a twenty-something year old food scientist residing in Chicago, IL with her two lovable beefy boy cats and husband, Casey!

I am fascinated by: hot cheetos (are you surprised?), traditional Chinese food, sacred geometry in nature, Shakespeare plays, collecting quirky pins, and all things slightly macabre and spooky. At Hot Cheeto Mama, you will find me rambling about:

Food-- The weird food combinations I'm experimenting with, the traditions and history associated behind many Chinese dishes, my  kitchen successes and failed attempts, accompanied with a dash of food science thrown in. Ya know, for science. and FUN! 

Travel-- I am a diehard Yelper and Type A personality. This combination means I research the shit out of my travels. This portion serves as a visual and written diary of my traveling adventures (like that one time it was 99 degrees outside,  my car overheated, died in the middle of nowhere, and of course I had to go to the bathroom...More on that later). This section encompasses aspects of planning for a trip, sightseeing, food, and lodging. 

Lifestyle- I will most likely write love letters to my cats here and share with you guys what it's like to navigate being newly married, growing personally, professionally, and all that fun and slightly awkward stuff.  Also, once in awhile, I might be vain and talk about girly things like nail polish. Cool?

If you've made it this far, thank you! You're the best. If you want to see anything specific, feel free to leave a comment or email me at lianghoubennett@gmail.com



  1. I’m so happy you’re doing this and can’t wait to read all of your blog posts!

  2. Hi Liang - congratulations on your marriage and best of luck to you. Casey is a cool guy and I liked you the first time I met you. We've sat across the table from each other at Judy's - don't recall if it was Christmas or Thanksgiving. Anyway, just wanted to say hello to my new cousin-in-law and once again wish you the best. You're a cool lady and I look forward to reading your posts. MWhat are your cats names? Take care. Dottie Long

    1. Thank you so much Dottie! Yes, I definitely remember and enjoy the fun times we have every Christmas. Hoping to see you this year as well. Our cats' names are Morris (big orange guy) and Sammy (slim tuxedo cat).
