The Condo Story

The Condo Story

One Pot Creamy Tomato Pasta

One Pot Creamy Tomato Pasta

Do you hate washing dishes? I really do!!! My current apartment doesn’t have a dish washer. I tend to create tons of dishes after every meal. It is depressing to see piles of dishes in the sink. I know I shouldn’t, but I usually leave my dishes overnight and tackle [...]

Beef Curry Udon

Beef Curry Udon

A month ago, Bryan was feeling under the weather. Runny nose, headache, weakness… Before he headed to work, we had a small chat. “Let me make something light and warm for dinner tonight. Udon sounds good?” I asked. I am thinking something like a clear broth with a few pieces [...]

Bacon Deviled Eggs

Bacon Deviled Eggs

When it comes to appetizer, I really haven’t looked into many recipes. Our current apartment is tiny. We can hardly invite anyone over, let alone having a party. Making appetizer for 2 seems a bit weird and too much work. After we bought our condo, one of the first things came [...]

Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownie

Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownie

3 dessert recipes in a row! YES! As you know, I love baking in fall! The kitchen is no longer hot. Watching the rising baked goods and smelling that aroma just makes it feels like home. Warm and comfort. That puts me in a happy mood. Halloween is coming up [...]

5-Ingredient Oreo Microwave Cake

5-Ingredient Oreo Microwave Cake | The Missing Lokness

Microwave mug cake is the dessert that has been going around the food blog world for a little while. I am sure you have heard about it already. But if you haven’t, it is an individual cake that is cooked in the microwave in a mug. I am always curious [...]

The past two weeks have been an emotional ride for Bryan and I . Good news is we bought our first condominium! YEAH! The new place is bigger than our current apartment. It has a higher ceiling. The marble counter top in the kitchen looks absolutely beautiful. Most importantly, we [...]

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

In recent year, Bryan and I have been trying to live a bit healthier. At least, we are changing little by little. As we are growing older, we realize our bodies weren’t like before any more. It is time to focus on our health. Going to the gym, eating more greens [...]

Unagi Don (Eel Rice Bowl)

I love going to Mitsuwa (Japanese supermarket). There are always new and interesting stuffs to look at, like weird sauces, many different kinds of fish cakes, fruits that I have never seen before, and tasty drinks. But, it is a dangerous place for Bryan and I. Whenever we were there, we came home with [...]
