Korean Beef and Kimchi Quesadillas

Korean Beef and Kimchi Quesadillas

When I was looking through foodgawker couple weeks ago, I saw these Korean beef quesadillas from Mantitlement. What caught my eyes wasn’t only the stunning picture, but also the name “Korean beef”. A few years ago, I have posted a Korean beef recipe. It is a simple meat dish with the sweet and [...]

Cedar Plank Salmon with Cilantro Pesto and Grilled Lime

Cedar Plank Salmon with Cilantro Pesto and Grilled Lime

I am typing this post with only my right hand. Some of you may have seen a few of my Instagram pictures and found out that I sprained my left wrist. Be honest, I have no idea when and how it happened. It started to hurt a little about a week [...]

Los Angeles: Taberna Arros y Vi

Taberna Arros y Vi

I haven’t done a restaurant review for a while. Recently, we went to a Spanish restaurant, Taberna Arros y Vi near Santa Monica Pier. That was a pretty unique place, so I thought I would share. Last weekend, Bryan and I just were in the mood for some tapas. Luckily, [...]

Lychee and Ginger Cooler

Lychee and Ginger Cooler

When I was in Mitsuwa (Japanese supermarket) last week, they have lychee. I immediately grabbed a bag. It has been a long time since I had lychee. It is probably because they can only be found in Asian supermarkets. Back in Hong Kong, my mom would always buy a bunch [...]

Hong Kong Style Beef Fried Rice

Hong Kong Style Beef Fried Rice

I have been craving for Hong Kong food for a while. Maybe it is the gloomy weather… It has been cloudy and dark all the time. In the past few days, tropical storm Blanca even brought in the humid. OH MY! That rainy, warm and humid weather really reminded me [...]

Paletas de Fresas (Mexican Strawberry Popsicles)

Paletas de Fresas (Mexican Strawberry Popsicles)

Have you tried paletas (Mexican popsicles)? Paletas are popsicles made with real fruits and a few other basic ingredients. There are two varieties, water based and cream based. Most of them are made with water, like watermelon, pineapple and guava. Some are made with milk and cream. Just like today’s [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
