Brown Butter Blueberry Muffins

Brown Butter Blueberry Muffins

I am totally obsessed with blueberries at the moment (blueberry ginger fizz & brioche french toast with blueberry compote). I am sure you probably aren’t surprised that I am posting another blueberry recipe this week. These muffins are over-the-top and they would make anyone happy! Bryan and I love them so much [...]

Kimchi Fried Rice with Beef

Kimchi Fried Rice with Beef

Korean seems to be the trending cuisine these days in Los Angeles. Most of the authentic Korean restaurants are located in Korea Town near downtown Los Angeles. There are always long lines, and parking is the worst. Finding street parking is almost impossible. Valet is your only option. Even with all the troubles, [...]

Halibut with Summer Squash and Roasted Potatoes

Halibut with Summer Squash and Roasted Potatoes

Fish on! Fish on! If you have watched River Monsters, you would know this phrase really well! I watch a lot of TV shows. Other than dramas (American, Hong Kongese, Taiwanese and Korean), I like to watch something educational and natural related (River Monsters, Cesar 911, Frozen Planet etc.). River [...]

Mango Panna Cotta

Mango Panna Cotta

It is my dad’s birthday this Sunday. It has been a really really LONG time since I have celebrated with him in person. The last time was probably 13 years ago. It was before I came to the States for college. After that, e-cards and phone calls are how we celebrate birthdays every [...]

Blueberry Ginger Fizz

Blueberry Ginger Fizz

Oh Monday… It is probably the least favorite days out of the whole week. No more fun and extra sleep. To cheer you up, I got you a refreshing drink recipe! It can be alcoholic or non-alcoholic, depends on whether you prefer alcoholic ginger beer, ginger beer or ginger ale. [...]

Baked Madras Curry French Fries

Baked Madras Curry French Fries

French fries are something I really enjoy! Curly fries, skinny fries, steak fries, battered fries, Belgian fries, McDonald’s fries and In-N-Out fries. I love them all! But we all know French fries are not really healthy, which makes me sad. But there is one type of fries that is much [...]

Orange Sherbet

Orange Sherbet

Time for some ice cream! Oh… I mean SHERBET! So what is the difference between ice cream and sherbet? Ice cream is creamy and thick. It mostly starts with an egg-based custard with tons of cream and milk. By law in the US, ice cream needs to contain no less [...]

Mushroom and Chicken Hand Pies

Mushroom and Chicken Hand Pies

To celebrate the arrival of spring, we got a little herb garden for our patio. I have never really plant and grow anything. I am not the gardening type. I don’t love plants and flowers. To me, they are always associated with bugs (which I hate and scare of). The [...]

Coffee Jelly

Coffee Jelly

When I say “jelly” (not the jam kind), you probably immediately think of the red and green jello cubes. Nothing is wrong with jello. But it is mostly considered as a kid treat. Now, here is a grown up version just for you – coffee jelly. You will sure get your dose of [...]

Brioche French Toast with Blueberry Compote

Brioche French Toast with Blueberry Compote

Let’s talk about breakfast. Bryan LOVES breakfast! Every Saturday, we go out for brunch. Our favorite place is The Original Pancake House. Bryan only orders their eggs benedict. It is absolutely the best in town. Their poached eggs are always cooked to perfection and stay runny. I prefer sweets, so I usually [...]

Raspberry Lemon Cupcakes

Raspberry Lemon Cupcakes

Hello cupcakes! Let me tell you about my love for cupcakes. It is not like I don’t like regular cakes. In general, I love all desserts. But cupcakes are appealing because of their sizes. It is much easier to make a bunch of small cupcakes, instead of baking a real [...]

New Orleans BBQ Shrimps with Mini Rosemary Biscuits

New Orleans BBQ Shrimps with Mini Rosemary Biscuits

Two years ago, Bryan and I visited Emeril Lagasse’s restaurant Table 10 in Vegas. Bryan looked at the menu and said he would order the shrimps. New Orleans BBQ Shrimps? What kind of flavors can that be? I have never been to New Orleans or eaten any New Orleans style [...]
