On Chicken Satay & Cucumber Salads

I finally had a weekend to myself and I thought, why don’t I go ahead and make something different? Lo and behold, I had been hankering for some chicken satay, and happened to have a FANTASTIC recipe for chicken satay by one of my go to’s: Recipe Tin Eats! I have been eyeing her recipe…

On Ice Cube Tray Sushi

It’s really not as weird as it sounds, and in fact, this trick is pretty clever! I was perusing Pinterest (as one is wont to do when on the train or in front of the TV) and I came across this “Make Sushi At Home” image and I was very curious! So much so, that…

On Benihana Chicken Fried Rice and Ginger Sauce at Home

How many of us have gone to Benihana’s (or some other hibachi restaurant)? *RAISES HANDS* And how many of us have fallen in love with that delicious, yellow yum yum sauce?! *RAISES BOTH HANDS* Oh yeah, that’s what I’m talking about. Back when I was still living in the States, Benihana’s was where I always wanted to go…

On Asian Chicken Salad & Gluten Free Brownies

Cooking With Alex: We did do a quick recipe a couple weeks ago (after Alex was also sick…that summer bug is going around, so watch yourselves!) and I know I never got a chance to post it or talk about it, but since her busy season at work has started to pick up, our weekend…

On Sad Goodbyes, Wedding Plans, CSA, and Other Things

Okay y’all, so I know it’s been a bit of a drought without a good post, but planning a wedding and getting ready (with just about 100 days left to go) takes it all out of you. Plus, I was sick all last week, so my plans to work on a good post last week…

On Alex’s Pork Noodle Bowls

IT HAPPENED! IT FINALLY HAPPENED!

And since this was all…

On Whole30

November 14, 2019: I had to clean up my blog and grab some storage back from all the various posts, so below is the COMPLETE compilation of Frankie’s and my Whole30 experience. All the recipes are listed in alphabetical order at the very bottom. Week 1 I’m sorry for the length, but I did warn…

On Take-Out Noodles at Home

Let’s talk easy peasy lemon squeezy, and by that, I mean Chinese Take-Out Noodles at home courtesy of Bon Appetit Magazine!. No phone calls, no internet orders, half the price of takeout, a ton of leftovers, and just as easy as going through the process of placing an order and waiting around, and I can…

On Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Given my Chinese background, I can’t help but fall back into old habits from time to time, craving those really deep and earthy flavors I grew up in, and thankfully, Frankie has been a trooper in trying new flavors and dishes that perhaps he was never all too familiar with. One of the things I…
