spring time and peanut butter #FoodieFriDIY

Spring is my favorite season. Little green buds peaking out, birds twittering through the sky, cool air mixed with warm sunshine, a romp in the mud…well, maybe not that last one. It’s full of hope and a little breath of fresh air. And the other day, I more than happily gloated while posting a picture […]

Red Oil Wonton Soup or Chao Shou 抄手

Light your taste buds on fire with an authentic Sichuan noodle dish...Chao Shou, or Wontons in English served with a firey chili oil broth. Don't worry, the beauty of the recipe is that you can adapt the spice to suit your style. #asianrecipes

If you’re new to Sichuan cuisine, let me tell you something about it. It’s hot. Like spicy hot. And sometimes, it’s aggressively hot. But that’s what the Sichuan peppercorn is for, folks. It tramples all over hot and leaves you feeling a bit numb from the experience. You walk away wondering, “What just happened here?” […]

Eating seasonally isn’t something I do all of the time. It’s not that I don’t like eating seasonally or anything. I mean, I come from a family of gardeners. We were made to weed between the green bean plants when I was young. If we accidentally pulled up the corn plants instead of the dandelions, […]

Come link up at #FoodieFriDIY with your crafts and recipes this weekend!

Have you ever had one of those weeks were things should have been relatively low-key turn into your personal week from… well someplace really hot (and we’re not talking the tropics)? That was my week. Hence, even though I have about 4 perfected recipes I’m just dying to get out to you…none of them made […]

foodiefriDIY faves week 37 link up

This week I’ve been craving sweet. It’s a bit ironic because I’ve been trying to eat better outside of school and exercise in the evenings, albeit not more than 15 minutes most nights. I ended up serving a salad with my Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars the other night. All right, technically not “with” – […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

If you're a peanut butter lover, get ready to meet your new best friend. These decadent bars are intense! #peanutbutter

  Few things remind me of childhood like peanut butter. From the bright pink, Barbie lunchbox of kindergarten to the nondescript, brown bag of high school. My morning breakfast routine for the four years of high school. Peanut butter desserts my mom would make for after-school snacks, and even a delightful trip to Mall of […]

How To Make a Chinese Hamburger (aka Rou Jia Mo)

These Rou Jia Mo sandwiches are sometimes called a Chinese hamburger. They're made using a versatile flatbread recipe and a braised pork belly filly. Don't forget cilantro and chilies! #chineserecipes

Or a Rou Jia Mo. Or a Chinese pulled pork sandwich. Whatever you choose to call it, I can guarantee your comfort food repertoire will never be quite the same again. My first encounter with the bread part of this sandwich was last year, right around the time it got cold, and I was temporarily […]

All of my favorite Tex Mex Inspired Dishes for your next fiesta!

While everyone else is busy pining after green goodies for Saint Patrick’s Day, something about last week’s linky party made me crave Tex-Mex. It may have been Margarita Day. It may have been the absence of avocado in my diet. But today I’m featuring some of my favorite dishes inspired by the flavors one might […]

15 Minute Asian Meatballs

15 Minute Asian Meatballs (6 of 7)

I love a good meatball. It’s a game changer guys (try hitting a home run if someone throws you one of these bad boys…you’ll be too busy licking your fingers to step up to bat). I mean…what’s for dinner? Not pasta…again. Not hamburgers or tacos (although I’m always down for a good taco…I just wish […]

#FoodieFriDIY no. 35


Welcome to Foodie FriDIY everyone…I hope you had fun in the kitchen this week. I did – I just didn’t document my exploits very well this time around. I’ve been insanely busy trying to catch up on all my schoolwork. I spent so much time sleeping over my vacation (8.30 feels so right) that I […]
