Chicken Congee!

Yay, it’s the weekend! Normally, I’m all about trying out new recipes and crazy cooking adventures on the weekend, but I have a number of leftovers in the fridge that I needed to finish. Earlier this week, I made a bunch of basmati rice to have with falafels and red lentil curry (during different mealsRead more

Red Lentil Curry

Sorry I’ve been so MIA! I’ve been pretty busy lately, flying back and forth between home and Denver. Now that my schedule is a little less hectic, I have time to sit down and share a recipe with you! So I’m not going to lie– since I’ve last talked to you guys, I’ve definitely gained some weight.Read more

Food experiment: Spaghetti squash carbonara

It’s been almost a week since Thanksgiving and I somehow still have leftovers. I don’t get it, it’s insane. After eating turkey for a few days straight, I needed a break. But as I left the gym earlier this evening, I had no desire to get into the car, drive, leave the car, buy something,Read more

Leftover turkey ideas: turkey pho!

It’s been 3 days since Thanksgiving, but do you find that you still can’t get rid of your turkey? I was joking with some friends that it’s never ending–for every slice you eat, it feels like two more pop up in its place. It’s baffling! After being injected with cream and butter for several daysRead more

Turkey leftover ideas: Vietnamese bì cuốn!

Happy (belated) Thanksgiving! Sorry I’ve been lax about posting! The holiday weekend has given me a bit of free time, so I’m back with another recipe! Hope you guys had a wonderful holiday stuffed (heh) with lots of turkey, potatoes, green beans, and copious amounts of gravy. I’m flying home in a couple weeks, so I figuredRead more

Japanese curry – revisited!

Happy October! 🎃 It’s only been a few days since October’s started but it’s already been quite busy for me. Can you believe it? It’s been a little over month now since I’ve made the move over to Colorado! I know you guys have only known me briefly, but I was born and raised aRead more

Pad Thai with Shrimp and Tofu

When I was re-watching Cutthroat Kitchen the other day during my usual Netflix food show binge, I came across an episode where the contestants had to make their best pad Thai. Seeing how simple the dish was (minus the 5 billion sabotages that some of the chefs had to go through), I thought, “Hey, maybe I shouldRead more

Mussels and Shrimp in Romesco Sauce

Earlier last week, I went to get some shell-on shrimp to try a pasta recipe I had in mind. I found myself over at Whole Foods, since the markets in my neighborhood are only open until the early evening, around 6PM or so. While scouring the seafood section for the shrimp I wanted, I saw thatRead more

Katsu curry

Ah, curry! Curry is definitely one of my favorite foods due to the numerous variations—Indian curry, Thai curry, Vietnamese curry, Burmese curry, Hmong curry… you name it! There’s thinner, soupier curries, and there’s thicker, heartier curries. There’s curry you eat with rice or noodles and there’s curry you can dip your fries in (or chips,Read more
