Cured Salmon with Lemon

Cured Salmon with Lemon

I love my cured salmon. I eat my weight in salmon when I’m in NYC at Russ & Daughters. Often at grocery stores, you can only find smoked salmon. But that’s not the same. I was binging on The Chef’s Line on Netflix and one […]

Corn Chowder

Corn Chowder

I love September. I’ve always been a fall and winter kind of girl, but these next three months are my favorite of the year. September is one of the best times in the season for produce. We still have the amazing summer produce but the […]

Matchazuke with Sous-Vide Salmon

Matchazuke with Sous-Vide Salmon

The first time I had chazuke, I hated it (lol). I had it in the States and the restaurant used hot water over the rice, which is how the dish was originally served when it was created. I thought it was so bland. However, I […]

Dutch Baby

Dutch Baby

Not many people know this, but the perfect weekend brunch can be made at home with just a handful of ingredients you already have in the fridge. All it takes is less than an hour of your morning to make this. Let’s be honest, that’s […]

Matcha Latte

Matcha Latte

Hindsight is always 20/20 and luckily I foresaw the future and prepped appropriately 😉If you’ve been following my Instagram stories this weekend, you know I was at Outside Lands eating all of the food (and also volunteering at a food booth). I took today off […]

Ube Cream Pie

Ube Cream Pie

Ube is having its moment right now. It’s been popular in Asian cuisine for a long time but currently trending as a popular flavor. No complaints from me since I love ube. Even Trader Joe’s has jumped on the band wagon with their ube ice […]

Fig, Brie, and Prosciutto Puff Pockets

Fig, Brie, and Prosciutto Puff Pockets

Growing up, I loved eating Hot Pockets for lunch. I would say I practically lived off of them during my teenage years. There was something so amazing about throwing a frozen item into the microwave in this little sleeve and something crispy and yummy came out. […]

Short Rib Tacos with Cassava Tortillas

Short Rib Tacos with Cassava Tortillas

Tacos are some of my favorite foods. I love making them at home because one big pot can last us for days and I don’t have to cook for a few days. Another reason I love tacos is I can use whatever I have in […]

Cauliflower Tots with The Foraging Fox

Cauliflower Tots with The Foraging Fox

I’ve been trying to get back into the habit of eating better these days again. We were so good leading up to the wedding on our keto diet. While I don’t think I can be on strict keto anymore, I’m going to try to find […]

Matcha Mille Crepe Cake with Minimal Matcha

Matcha Mille Crepe Cake with Minimal Matcha

You don’t need Lady M when you have Lady S. Who wants a slice of this matcha mille crepe cake? I might be a little weird, but I love slicing into a mille cake and feeling the pressure give away as you slice through each […]

Quest for the Best Sushi

Quest for the Best Sushi

My parents like to travel during the end of the year, which means they’re never around for my birthday. It doesn’t really matter to me all that much as I’m an adult (kinda sorta) and they always try to make up for missing it when […]

āina

āina

I love Hawaii. I visit the islands at least once a year. There’s something about the people, culture, and food that makes me feel right at home; it also warms my heart when Hawaiians think I’m a local too. When I’m home in SF, I […]

TLT Food by the Lime Truck

TLT Food by the Lime Truck

We were in LA for a weekend and we wanted to try something new. Chris’s brother attends UCLA and he told us about this Mexican/Asian fusion place in Westwood. I didn’t know this until we got there, but TLT Food actually originated as a food […]

PPQ Dungeness Island: Crabby Garlic Noodles

PPQ Dungeness Island: Crabby Garlic Noodles

I love seafood. Crab is easily one of my favorites. Growing up, I was able to eat a whole dungeness crab on my own for dinner. My parents used to tell me the story of their first date eating dungeness crab at Pier 39. I […]
