As the weather cools and Christmas nears, the kitchen seems to call you in to make cozy sweets for friends and family. Well, mine calls to me anyways. A tradition that I’m hoping to start this year is to bake and deliver holiday cookies and sweets to our neighbors. We’ve lived in this neighborhood for […]

Christmas time has always been one of my favorite times of the year. Not because of the gifts, the parties and the food, but because the world just seems a tiny bit happier, somehow. Maybe it’s the family and friends gathering for the holidays. Maybe it’s the making and exchanging of baked goods. Maybe it’s […]

Some foods are just meant for each other: Peanut butter and jelly, macaroni and cheese, peas and carrots… chicken and waffles. And the famous springtime couple: strawberry and rhubarb. The pairing of strawberry and rhubarb is one for the storybooks. Each is great on its own, in strawberry pies and rhubarb crisps. Even when rhubarb […]

Happy Birthday to my dear husband, Paul! He leaves his twenties and turns the big 3-0 today. He amazes me. He’s taking this whole turning 30 thing in stride and doesn’t seem fazed by it at all. Maybe it’s a woman thing, because I’m turning 30 in a tad under 6 months and I’m already […]

Happy Chinese New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai! When I think of Chinese New Year, I think of family and food. Ah food, glorious food, it’s hard to beat the Chinese New Year feasts. But for me, the best part of the new year meals would be a bowl of tang yuan. Tang yuan (glutinous […]

One of my favorite things to have for breakfast is oatmeal in the mornings with my rice milk, cinnamon and bananas. But, not when the bananas start looking like this: I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty picky about my bananas. I like them with a slight bit of green left at the top […]

It appears as though the impossible has happened: I have become a SAHM (Stay At Home Mom), sort of. And I am okay with that, sort of. I was always one to put career first, with no children as far as the eye could see. Even though it was in my “life plan” to have […]

Lately, the TV show that we’ve been a tad obsessed with in this household has been MasterChef. I’m usually not a fan of cooking competition shows, but this one has my attention. I think it’s mostly because the contestants are all “home cooks” – so just like me. But, the skill level of some of […]

Recently, lychees have been a popular topic of conversation when we’ve gone out to meals with friends. It may just be coincidence, or it may be the hot weather that has many people thinking about refreshing, juicy fruit. When I think of lychees, my mind immediately flies back to memories of my family gathered around […]

I’m a kid at heart, always have been. Most of my favorite moves are of the Pixar variety, and if it wasn’t for all the walking, I could probably visit Disney World every other month. I can also be found browsing through toy stores, just for the fun of it. Plush toys have a way […]
