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 [...]

One Pot Creamy Spaghetti with Zucchini, Mushroom and Chicken

One Pot Creamy Spaghetti with Zucchini, Mushroom and Chicken

Happy Lunar New Year! I hope you got many red pockets! I got two from my parents. My parents would collect a few for Bryan and I from our relatives in Hong Kong. I am already married, so I am usually the one giving out red pockets. But since I [...]

Roasted Chicken Thighs with Grapes and Pearl Onions

Roasted Chicken Thighs with Grapes and Pearl Onions

Valentine’s Day is Saturday. Be honest, Bryan and I are not really into Valentine’s Day. We think it has been commercialized by all the retail companies. Everyday can be sweet and special for you and your sweetheart. This is no need to dedicate a day to show your love. The gift, [...]

Individual Key Lime Cheesecakes

Individual Key Lime Cheesecakes

Counting back, Bryan and I have moved in the condo for about 2 months now. We got everything unpacked and tidied up within a couple weeks. All furnitures are in place. The only thing missing is the art works. We need a few, but we will take our time to get something we [...]

Hong Kong Egg Waffle

Hong Kong Egg Waffle

When it comes to Hong Kong street food, egg waffle (雞蛋仔) has to be the most well-known and unique. It is like many mini egg-shape cakes connected together. Crispy crust on the outside and soft cake in the middle. Little sweet. No topping is needed. Just eat them when they are [...]

Sauteed Crimini Mushrooms with Curry Yogurt Dip

Sauteed Crimini Mushrooms with Curry Yogurt Dip

We are back home. We had fun in Vegas, but very tiring! 4 days in Vegas for CES required at least 2 days to recover. For the whole weekend, we pretty much sat on the couch, watched TV and played video games. That is our kind of relaxing. As we [...]
