Curry Chicken

You know we all have that one dish that screams "MOM"? At least I do... Curry chicken is that dish for me. I don't remember if it's because I have said it was delicious in some distant past but she makes it all the time... or was it the fact that this is one of the very few dishes that I would eat leftovers and wouldn't give her a hard time... I've tried to replicate it over the years but there was only 1 time when I thought... "ok, this taste like hers". So I have my mom wrote down what she does... yet, mine taste nothing like hers... it's still good... just different...

Hot Wings

It is so cold and gloomy this weekend... I didn't feel like doing anything at all... but laying in bed all day is not going to make my tummy satisfy... My brother suggests I eat some crackers or chips if I am so lazy to cook... well... I haven't sink that low yet...

Inari Sushi

When I woke up this morning, it's already almost noon (the usual - I actually woke up before 8am but opted to sleep some more).  The weather is gorgeous and it's just a perfect biking weather.  So to enjoy the day without spending too much time on my brunch, I opted to make some sushi!

Afternoon Tea

What’s America’s idea of food? After years of living in this country, my conclusion is breakfast, lunch, and dinner… that’s it! And to this date, I can’t think of anything else that reminds me more of America than a hamburger…

Tentsuke is a Japanese groceries store w/ a food court that's packed at lunch every single day.  It's located in Elk Grove Village, IL and it's one of my favorite place for a good, quick, and cheap lunch.

Not feeling peachy at all today… in fact, I am quite sick… Headache, stuffy and runny nose, sexy voice, achy body, I might even be burning a temperature... so I took advantage of one of my “work from home” days this year… and yes I did work! I just didn’t drive to the office, spread germs, and endanger the lives of the people on the road…

Radish Cake

I have been craving this one for a while now... and they only have them at the "yum cha" places here... and it's really not that difficult to DIY... and once you learned it, you can put the same formula to Taro Cake, Sticky Rice, etc.

Banana Banana Bread

I checked my fridge earlier today and saw the bananas I got from the week before is starting to get mushy... So I tried out this recipe... not bad :)


After Freshman 15, Sophomore 20, and the forever expanding waistline ever since I started working (I blame my job)... I have to stop myself from eating and start thinking... this can't go on forever... I love to eat too much... there is no way I can survive those apple and cabbage soup diets... but I don't want to weigh 300 pounds...

Not eating and chewing celery sticks is never an option... just the thought alone is repulsive... but I have to start somewhere… so I take the matter upon my own hands… I cook almost everyday when I am not travelling… I am never keen on spending that $10 at fast food joints that I know I won’t enjoy and I just can’t afford eating that $30 meal at nice sit down restaurants. So cooking not only helped me save $, but I also control exactly what I put into my food.

My new approach to eating (or food) now is "if I have to gain weight, I will only eat things that are worth it!" and "everything in moderation". I indulge but I exercise… so hopefully I won’t become that 300 pounds person that I dread to be…

As for this blog, I am just sharing my tried and true recipes… and in a way, I am still working towards that food critic goal...

Bon Appétit!
