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

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!

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.

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
