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 Healthy Eating [After Whole30]

If I haven’t already said it, and I’m pretty sure I have, Whole30 was indeed life-changing. Not only does junk food or fast food no longer taste the same, it’s no longer appealing either. Not that that’s a bad thing, because it totally isn’t (better on our budget and better on our waistbands too), but…

On Seared Barramundi and Post-Whole30

If I haven’t already said it, and I’m pretty sure I have, Whole30 was indeed life-changing. Not only does junk food or fast food no longer taste the same, it’s no longer appealing either.

On Chicken & Rice

Because sometimes, one-pot meals are exactly what you need at the end of a long day, rainy day, cold/snow day, or even sick day! And I’m not kidding about that either! This is literally one of those put everything in the pot, let it simmer for a bit, then stuff your face with its hearty…

On Roasted Chili-Lime Cod

With the change in weather now in full effect, the sweaters have come out, the scarfs have been arranged, and there’s usually a cup of tea in my hand while I’m cooking in my comfy pants (oh yes, I am more or less cooking in my yoga pants and pjs because I like to be…

On Spicy Korean Chicken

Oh, my gosh. This camera, it’s tricky, but I love it. And the tricky part isn’t necessarily taking the photo—I’ve been playing around with it enough to know (kind of) what I’m doing—but rather, juggling it while I’m cooking. It’s definitely not as sleek or easily stashed in between the levels of my knives like…

On A New Camera & Lots of Practice Photos

OH MY GOSH! I’m so excited to announce that I got an upgrade! And by that, I mean Frankie was super sweet and gave me my XMAS present INCREDIBLY early! A new Canon EOS 70D! I had been looking for a refurbished one for ages, jumping between Canon and Nikon, and specific price ranges rather…

On Lemon Chicken & Rice

So, I’m starting to get more and more into one pot meals, because I’m also noticing that, especially during the middle of the week, the last thing I want to do after a full 8 hour work day is cook something overly complicated or time consuming (we’re talking more than 45 minutes of prep, unless…

On Curry

In Hong Kong, there is one building in particular that stands out to me still when I think about curry. The Repulse Bay: sky blue exterior, long and curved like the back of the snake, with pepto-pink balconies all the up like scales. In the very middle of this building is a square hole. Yes,…
