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.

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!

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!

Sugar and spice and everything nice!

I don’t know about you guys, but one of my favorite thing mall foods when I was a kid was cinnamon rolls–specifically cinnamon rolls from Cinnabon. Those giant fluffy pillows of bread smothered in thick, decadent cream cheese frosting made for a delicious treat to share with a friend (because we all know from LouisRead 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

Roasted Peach and Garlic Pork Sausage

If you’ve ever wanted to be fancy and make your own sausage, this is your recipe! This recipe came about on whim, really. I found myself walking around the Los Altos farmers’ market on Thursday and came across some really pretty stone fruits—peaches, plums, and apricots. Since I make a lot of food choices accordingRead more
