This week for me has been about “grab and go.” I’ve been on the move and haven’t had time to cook a real sit down meal. I got my hands on some orange sauce from a taqueria, named La Vics, located in San Jose. Their one specialty is their orange sauce and it’s gotten so popular that they’ve … More Meatless Quesadilla
This is not your average everyday french toast. This is what I call.. a REAL plate of fruit! You’ll see what I mean. Teehee. Guava, mango, and taro bread topped with bananas and strawberries and drizzled with guava butter. That’s what you call the most unhealthy, but best tasting fruit salad in the world! … More French Toast
Do you ever wake up completely warm in your bed, getting out from under your blankets, and immediately jumping back in because it’s so darn cold?? That’s been happening to me for about a week now and I’ve been late to wherever it is I’m supposed to be because of it! Besides wanting a fat scarf … More Hearty Chili
I used to hate all foods that are orange (except for anything that’s close to an orange). That includes butternut squash, pumpkin, sweet potatoes/yams, and persimmons. All of a sudden, the light switch flipped to the on position and I’m totally in love… not for the persimmons though. During the last half of each year, mom … More Buttered Sweet Potatoes
I’M STUFFED! I had prepared myself for Thanksgiving week by taking my leggings out of retirement. They are now back in business…. full time! I hope your holidays were filled with your closest friends, family, and delicious food, like mine was. I was so full when I initially started this post that I actually fell into a food … More Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Turkey Breast
I’m talking about crabbing! I’ve always eaten crabs at chinese restaurants, which are either lightly battered then fried or cooked in a wok with green onions, garlic, and ginger or at buffets where the legs are always long and thin and take a lot of work to get the meat out. It’s crabbing season so … More I Got Crabs!!
I’m talkin’ bout racks of ribs! After talking about the McRib, I was thinking of getting my fingers and lips smothered in sauce from eating some ribs. My mom makes some bomb ass (excuse my french), baby back ribs and she only makes them during the holidays. I guess that makes ’em taste better and that much more … More Racks on racks on racks!!
Happy Halloween guys! Yeah, so what, I’m a day late. Driving through my neighborhood on Halloween night and seeing how dark it was made me a little sad inside. I’ve noticed that every year, less and less people get into the Halloween spirit. As a child, I remember having a blast and being so excited whenever … More Caution. Handle with care. I’M HOT
My grandparents took care of all the kids when we were younger. They’d pick us up from school and would spend the entire day with us. They’d take us to the park and would stay there until we wanted to leave, took us walking if the weather was nice, and always made sure we didn’t … More Oden-Japanese Fishcake Stew
Anyone who lives in San Francisco knows what I’m talking about when I say that the weather is pretty unpredictable. We’ll have three sunny days in a row, at tops then all of a sudden, it could be raining. Mostly, we’re just covered with a thick layer of fog. Something about the gray sky almost … More Pumpkin Curry Soup for the Soul
