Quince Part 2: Ginger Poached Quince

Monday, November 16, 2009

Quince may sound mysterious (if it does, read part 1), but poaching quince couldn’t be a simpler task. It could even be your first attempt at cooking. The part I would worry about is peeling the quince. You need a very sharp knife and be extra careful please!

Instant Ramen Noodles

Sunday, November 15, 2009

It all started about six years ago, when I ended up in the hospital with a severe allergic reaction. I had developed an allergy to artificial food coloring and was covered in hives from right below my ear lobes, down to my toes. It was so itchy; I scratched my sides till they were bleeding. […]

Winter BLT

Friday, November 13, 2009

Yesterday, I woke up with flu-like symptoms that I really struggled with, but lost. I couldn’t even get up. Lon had already gone to work but my brother came over to walk Ice for me. Thanks Justin! I was so hot, it was causing a headache, but at the same time, I was shivering with […]

Dim Sum Go Go

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

I’ve passed by
Dim Sum Go Go 5 East Broadway, New York, NY 10038 countless times, assuming it was just another cookie cutter Chinese restaurant of Chinatown. I also don’t eat much in Chinatown these days, preferring the far away land of Flushing where everything is just a few notches better. I […]

Cloud Topped Pumpkin Loaf

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

I’m so excited to tell you about my Cloud Topped Pumpkin Loaf. I think I may have come up with a totally new dessert! But I guess I have to admit that this all happened by accident. It’s all because I completely messed up the idea I had, failed horribly, total embarrassment to bakers. I […]

Smoky Toasty Pumpkin Seeds

Monday, November 9, 2009

Do you ever have one of those days where everything seems to be going wrong? Your hair has enough static to start powering small appliances. You’re already running late and then a phone call comes; it’s the person (and I’m not saying who) that you can’t get off the phone. Your coffee maker is broken. […]

Cook.Eat.Drink.Live

Sunday, November 8, 2009

We were invited to attend Cook.Eat.Drink.Live, yet another food event. It seems like these are popping up every other week these days (in NYC). Held at The Tunnel/La Venue, there was a room for wine tasting, a long corridor of food tastings, and two stages with scheduled demos. There was also one room that seemed […]

Single Serve Hot Pot Soup

Friday, November 6, 2009

I love hot pot and if you love hot pot, you’re surely familiar with the soup at the end. Once it gets cold out, I start craving that soup, the melding of so many flavors. It’s soothing and nourishing, exactly what the doctor ordered. But, hot pot is a group activity, a perfect way to […]
