Peking Pork Chops
If you are thinking that much of what we eat at home is Asian food , or at the very least Asian-influenced food, then you would be absolutely right. My pantry is packed with everything from soy sauce ( regular and dark ) to sesame oil ( Chinese and Korean ), oyster sauce and hoisin, Shaoxing ...
Bulgogi Korean BBQ
My little neighborhood has been getting spiffier by the minute . I still remember when I just moved in, my pregnant belly swaying before me, excited to be in the heart of the city ( that’s me…the city girl ), eager to explore my new home. There were definitely some gems already in place back ...
Korean Beef Stew...and I'm back
Hi. I hope you’re still here. Because I am. I always have been in a way. All throughout these past months of little sleep, of no respite, of tiredness and sadness. Of trying to get by, trying to make sure everything was at least a decent amount done. Of squeezing in work, and children,
Fight Food Waste -- Love Food Don’t Waste
Hi folks…you still there? I hope so, because I've been a bit pensive lately, a bit meditative, and usually, when I surface from these states, I have a thing or two to share. And where else would I share it but here…a space where no one can interrupt me and I can ramble to my heart’s content. So
The Wagyu Bacon Giveaway...We Have a Winner!!
How is everyone doing this wet and windy Friday? Another typhoon has hit our shores and, as I've seen report after report on the news, floods abound and power is already down in some areas. Now is the time to stay home and hunker down with your family...or with a good book and a bowl of something
Hi there. I know I’ve been away for a bit. I know it’s been a little quiet over here. I wish I could tell you ( as I usually do ) that work, Halloween planning, big school decisions, friends, life, and a million and one everyday things kept me too busy. I wish . I wish for the insistent
Breakfast #72: Wagyu Bacon & Eggs, Indulgence, and A Giveaway!
I left you last week while I was bemoaning my sorry state of having been reduced to wearing all flats …my heels gathering dust as they no longer fit my post-pregnancy feet ( not to mention my post-pregnancy lifestyle ). What is a girl to do? Do I resign myself to the fact that tottering around,
It's Friday....and some bits & things for the weekend!
It's Friday and I'm down with horrid bug. It's been going around these parts, first with the little girl, then with the little boy, and then finally with mama...where it has settled with some vengeance in the form of achy bones and a really painful throat. Not much of a Friday night for certain
Three Cups Chicken
I swear. I look around and realize that I have, suddenly and frightfully, reached the depths of un-sophistication. Ok, I’ll be honest, maybe not so “ suddenly ”. But most definitely frightfully. I was puttering around one morning, organizing my shoes ( puttering?? organizing my shoes?? Why am
Double Chocolate Brownie Bites
Never enough hours in the day! I often find myself thinking this, wishing for a magic wand or time-management fairy godmother to grant me some extra hours to get just a little bit more done. Finish off a couple more emails, take the kids to the park, go through just one more extra report, cook a
