I love tofu, probably because I grew up eating it. It’s fairly standard in Chinese cuisine and when I was a kid, we ate it at least twice a week for dinner. I know a lot of people who don’t like the taste or texture, but for me, it’s incredibly comforting and delicious.
Meatballs have always held a certain allure for me. It’s probably all due to that childhood song, “On Top of Spaghetti.” I remember singing rousing versions of that song in Kindergarten but having no idea what the song was about. As wondrous as a meatball tree was, what the heck was a meatball?
I’m obsessed with Trader Joe’s. I love how friendly they are, how they have samples all the time and their large variety of cheeses. The other day I even found tiny brie wheels! I’m not quite sure what it is about miniature food, but call me obsessed because I love it! If all food came […]
Do you ever have a bunch of random chicken skins hanging out in the fridge/freezer? I always buy skin-on chicken but a lot of the time I’ll end up using the chicken and having leftover chicken skins. I’ll either pan-fry them up or if I’m feeling particularly wicked, I’ll deep fry them up into a […]
If there were no consequences, like possibly turning orange or becoming orange-shaped, I think I would eat mac and cheese every day of my life. Stove-topped or baked, with breadcrumbs or without, with add-ins or plain, mac and cheese is one of my ultimate comfort foods.
I had a pretty epic Saturday and it all started out with A Cozy Kitchen’s Peach Pistachio Galette. I got up bright and early and had myself a little treat while the house was asleep. Galettes are not technically a breakfast food, but it was Saturday and I had a ripe peach just begging to […]
I’ve been seeing these Japanese cat doughnuts all over the internet and I knew I just had to make them, especially since one of my besties is a cat and doughnut lover. These cutie-pie doughnuts are a birthday treat for my sweet friend, Minna (Happy Birthday Minna!).
Once September rolls around I become obsessed with pumpkins. I’m not quite sure why I love pumpkin so much – I didn’t grow up eating it and to this day mom tells me that she’d rather die than eat pumpkin pie. It’s not that she hates the fruit (yes, pumpkin is a fruit!), it has […]
I have to warn you, this sangria is dangerous. It’s so delicious that you’ll find yourself drinking glass after glass without realizing just how much alcohol you’ve consumed. It’s also dangerous because you can pretty much make it with all the things you have at home right now.
Now that cooler weather is rolling in, I’m on a toast kick. I feel like toast is on a completely different level than plain old bread. I almost feel bad for bread and it’s lack of crispy edges. Whenever I see a loaf of bread at the grocery store I think to myself, “Wow, you […]
Hainanese chicken rice is one of my all time favourite meals. For those of you who haven’t had it, it’s a simple chicken and rice dish that is deceptively full of flavour. I say it’s deceptive because it’s literally just a plate of chicken and rice. But really, it’s so much more than just a plate […]
I love nachos and I’m pretty sure the whole world loves nachos too. Case in point: my dad, who makes it a point to only consume Asian food, loves nachos. I introduced them to him many, many years ago on a family cabin trip. Stuck by a lake with no means of other entertainment or […]
