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 [...]

Shrimp Salad with Garlic Miso Dressing

Shrimp Salad with Garlic Miso Dressing

Last Saturday, Bryan and I went to see World’s largest rubber duck in San Pedro. The duck is more than a 100 feet tall. It is an art piece that has traveled around the world since 2007. While it was in Hong Kong last year, my facebook feed was filled with tons [...]

Unagi Don (Eel Rice Bowl)

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 [...]

Spaghetti and Meatballs

Spaghetti and Meatballs

This week recipe is all about classic Italian spaghetti and meatballs. I don’t recall seeing many spaghetti and meatballs dishes in Hong Kong when growing up. The most common Italian pasta dishes in HK are creamy seafood pasta and spaghetti with meat sauce. Spaghetti and meatballs was a brand new thing to [...]

Coca-Cola Chicken Wings

Coca-Cola Chicken Wings

Coca-Cola chicken wings is a simple Chinese dish that everyone in Hong Kong have eaten before. It is a very common and popular homemade dish. How did someone think of cooking chicken wings with coca-cola? I don’t have a clue. One thing I do know for sure is that coca-cola is something special in [...]

Baked Salmon with Honey and Thyme

Baked Salmon with Honey and Thyme

Another salmon recipe? Yes! If you have been following my blog, you know that Bryan and I love salmon (my salmon recipes)! Rich and fatty salmon are flavorful and irresistible. Our favorite is king salmon, which is high in fat content and has a buttery texture. Sockeye has the best flavors, but [...]

BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

This past week has been really interesting. A few things happened. On 4th of July, while we were heading to my in-laws’ house, our car ran over a huge piece of sharp metal on the freeway. Loud pop! Immediately, we knew we had a flat tire. Ahhhh…. Why on July [...]

Chocolate Dipped Frozen Banana Bites

These days… everything is about the World Cup. Have you been watching? I grew up playing sports (volleyball), so I enjoy watching sports (basketball, soccer, volleyball etc). With US team still in the game, Bryan and I have been watching and rooting for our country. Exciting and nerve racking at the [...]

BBQ Baby Back Ribs

BBQ Baby Back Ribs

4th of July is coming up next week. When it comes to Independence Day, BBQ is the only way to go for Americans. Americans LOVE BBQ! Whenever there is a public holiday during the warm months (probably all year-long in California), people grill. Burgers, hot dogs, ribs, chicken, steak, and [...]

Peach-Bourbon BBQ Sauce

Peach-Bourbon BBQ Sauce

  To fulfill Bryan’s dreams of summer grilling, we bought a small Weber grill last year. However, we only got around using the grill for a few times. The official first day of Summer (6/21) is still not here, but we can’t wait any longer and wanted to start grilling. After [...]

Ketchup Spaghetti

Ketchup Spaghetti

This spaghetti is not your regular Italian spaghetti. Instead of using tomato, tomato sauce or paste, this dish is made with ketchup. You may think why on earth would you use ketchup in pasta. In fact, it is very common to see ketchup in Asian’s cooking, like baked pork chop with fried [...]

Milk Chocolate Ice Cream Parfait

Milk Chocolate Ice Cream Parfait

Summer is almost here. I enjoy having longer day time. Most importantly, we will be able to eat a lot of more cold treats! When it comes to ice cream treat, there are always two things that come to my mind. One is a classic banana split. I am sure you all [...]
