Chocolate Dipped Frozen Key Lime Pies

Chocolate Dipped Frozen Key Lime Pies

Many years ago (maybe like 8 years), Bryan and I liked to watch a Food Network show, Road Tasted. It doesn’t exist any more. Back then, it was hosted by Jamie and Bobby Deen. They went around the country and tried many well-known food. The best part was that all of [...]

White Peach Mojito

White Peach Mojito

If you may have noticed, I have been posting a few more cocktail or drink recipes this year. You are absolutely correct! It is all thanks to our bar cabinet. Before we moved, our place was tiny (425 square feet). Don’t talk about liquor bottles. We barely have enough space to store [...]

Easy Napa Cabbage Tofu Soup

Easy Napa Cabbage Tofu Soup

Korean BBQ, steak, fries, mac and cheese, lasagna, kabobs, pot pie… Just looking at these food terms makes me very full. After a totally stuffed food frenzy weekend or vacation, don’t you have the feeling that you want something lighter and healthier for dinner? Salad maybe the first thing that comes [...]

Pasta alla Norma (Eggplant and Tomato Pasta)

Pasta alla Norma (Eggplant and Tomato Pasta)

How do you feel about eggplant? Love it? Hate it? Eggplant is one of my favorite vegetables. They are rich and creamy. I know that most eggplants we see in supermarket are usually bitter. They are the globe eggplants. They are a bit round and long, like a balloon. The [...]

Crispy Oven Baked Garlic Chicken Wings

Crispy Oven Baked Garlic Chicken Wings

It is National Chicken Wing Day today! Seriously, who can keep up with all these national food days? There is one almost every week. I heard about today’s one through the morning news. This recipe is a complete coincidence. Last week, Bryan requested chicken wings for dinner. While I was [...]

Strawberry Semifreddo

Strawberry Semifreddo

July is normally the driest month in Los Angeles. Last weekend was a completely different story. The storm from Mexico bought in heavy rain, lightning and thunder. It felt like it rained more over the weekend than many days during the past rainy season. The rain wasn’t too much of a problem. It [...]

Rainier Cherry Cream Cheese Hand Pies

Rainier Cherry Cream Cheese Hand Pies

My cherry memory all started from maraschino cherry. What kind of cherry is that? You know that bright red cherry on top of a cake or drink. Yup, those are maraschino cherries. I hate them with my guts. They are overly sweet with an artificial taste. That texture really throws me off too. Yuck! [...]

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 [...]
