Why the name Hello Sesame? Well, I've never met a food with sesame in it that I didn't like. Those sesame desserts at dim sum? Those are my jam. Sesame oil in pad thai? It's pretty much the most important ingredient. When I was hanging out with my now best friend my junior year of college, she accidentally called me sesame instead of Stephanie, which was how the name came to be. I'm 22 years old, and I'm about to graduate college, and love this little outlet on the side for when I'm in the mood to create. Expect (lots) of food content, some lifestyle content here and there, and overall a casual place to express some creativity.


  1. Oh my gosh, I'm from Michigan too! Where are you at?

  2. So nice to see another Spartan blogger! We will have to meet up soon :) I am absolutely in love with your blog! xoxo

  3. Steph! Lovin your blog. How did you design your theme?! Hope you have a lovely spring break :)

    1. Aw thanks megan! I just found someone to design it for me, but hopefully I can figure out how to design it myself later :) Thanks, you too!

  4. Hi Stephanie,
    I came across your packing list of what not to bring. Thanks for the advice. My daughter will be attending American University in Washington D.C this Fall. My daughter is very busy working and making money for her college. I have this college list that is so overwhelming. I could use some help.
