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

Miso Plum Clafoutis

Miso Plum Clafoutis

Miso plum clafoutis. Have I lost my mind? Not really. Even my husband thought it didn’t sound very good at first. But he soon ate his words, and the clafoutis. Miso has been used in a lot of dishes lately not just as soup or […]

Cherry Shortcake

Cherry Shortcake

It’s been cherry season in California for the last month or so now. My parents gave me a bag of red cherries. Oddly enough, I don’t like eating cherries on their own. I feel they’re better suited in desserts for some reason. I wanted to […]

Sobacha Panna Cotta

Sobacha Panna Cotta

A few months ago, a friend of mine was visiting from out of town and we went to Soba Ichi in Oakland. Best soba I’ve had outside of Japan. Their juwari soba was incredible. Juwari soba is made from 100% buckwheat. This is incredibly hard […]

Strawberry Thyme Galettes (Phoros Mix)

Strawberry Thyme Galettes (Phoros Mix)

When it’s good, it’s good. And what’s good is the combination of strawberry and thyme. I love balancing sweet flavors with fresh herbs. It’s refreshing and adds layers of dynamic flavor. It’s the beginning of strawberry season and I’m so excited about all the pastries […]
