June 20, 2020 Acai bowls are so yummy and easy to eat. Extremely versatile since you can play around with endless topping possibilities too! Here is a solid acai bowl recipe from Chelsea’s Messy Apron. Here is a wonderful take on a tropical acai bowl from A Couple Cooks! I personally just used what I had to make […] {More...}

Kimchi Fried Rice (With Chicken)

June 16, 2020 I love Kimchi fried rice! It’s actually pretty easy to make if you have the ingredients. I generally followed this recipe for the kimchi fried rice with a few modifications. 2 1/2 tbsp kimchi juice and 1 tbsp gochujang 1 cup kimchi (chopped into thumbnail size) 3 cups steamed rice 1/2 tsp garlic 1/2 tbsp […] {More...}

Butterscotch Chip Cookies

June 11, 2020 I used this recipe. When using a tablespoon to scoop out the dough, it actually made a little over 3 dozen cookies for me. I think it’d make a perfect 3 dozen if you are more generous with each tablespoon scoop. These cookies are so good! I’ve use the recipe from Tollhouse in the past […] {More...}

Broccoli Cheddar Pasta

May 27, 2020 This was my first time making a pasta dish inside of the Instant Pot! It was super easy and a lot of fun. I used this recipe for the pasta. I also made some chicken meatballs, browned them a bit in a pan with oil, and then finished cooking them by simply adding them inside […] {More...}

Mini Tamale Pies

May 24, 2020 Found this recipe on Chowhound. I have a ton of masa on hand so wanted to see what I could make with it. This surprisingly took longer than expected to make for just 12…I think because I wasn’t expecting the “dough” portion to be so crumbly and difficult to press into the muffin pan. The […] {More...}

Lemon Ice Cubes

May 6, 2020 Thanks to my neighbor giving us some massive lemons from his tree, I imagined having some yummy ice cubes to add to drinks. I squeezed about 1 cup of fresh lemon juice, muddled some mint in there, and added honey (I think I eyeballed about 1/4 cup?). The added honey made the mixture reach up […] {More...}

Fresh Lemonade

May 6, 2020 Something I didn’t take pleasure in before the COVID-19 crisis was fresh fruit. I try to go to the grocery store every 2-3 weeks instead of once a week or whenever I feel like it now. Fruit and veggies don’t have a super long shelf life so that’s something that’s more appreciated these days. My […] {More...}

Cooking: Ground Beef Bowls

April 17, 2020 Original inspiration was Terrace House actually, LOL. They made “gapao rice” on the show and it looked easy yet delicious. While poking around online for some recipes, I saw two recipes (Cooking Japanese Style and A Day in the Kitchen) and was inspired to make my own ground beef bowl. Super simple, quick, and I […] {More...}
