Broccolini

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

Jewish Whitefish Salad

Saturday, April 10, 2010

Finally! We moved, but it’s not all smooth sailing yet. We’re living out of boxes and we don’t have a kitchen yet.

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

I grew up with lots and lots of dumplings. Pork, chicken, shrimp, snow pea leaf, spinach, chives, fish, crab, roe, combination of, and many I’m just not thinking of at the moment. Sometimes they are boiled, sometimes steamed, sometimes fried. At times, we would make the dumplings from scratch, dough, filling, and all. But, we […]

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. […]
