Nagaimo, Chinese Yam, Korean Yam

Nagaimo, Chinese Yam, Korean Yam

If you eat Asian cuisines, you have most likely come across Nagaimo. Nagaimo is know as a yam, but reminds me more of a radish, such as daikon, because of it’s ultra light and crispy texture. It’s very sticky and snotty, similar to the insides of okra. If you eat omakase, you have most likely […] more…
Finding Love at a NYC Supper Club

Finding Love at a NYC Supper Club

According to my single friends and my eyes, dating nowadays seems to be extremely difficult. It was fun when I was single and dating, but now in the days of social media and apps like Tinder, whenever I turn around it looks as if tiny piglets are being eaten alive by multiple wolf packs (even […] more…

End of National Chicken Month

End of National Chicken Month

  I do eat eggs once in a while when I’m at home, and for people who do eat eggs, I strongly, strongly advise you to purchase cage-free eggs, pasture-fed chicken eggs or eggs from humanely raised chickens.

Delicious, Easy, Basic Chocolate Cake Recipe

Hmmm…so I think that when it comes to my blog, you’re going to have to imagine that you have the hands of a girl that has a height of 4’11” so that you can figure out what measurements I used. This cake was so good. Not overly sweet, but chocolate-ly and extremely moist. And I […] more…

Dough Loco Review

Dough Loco Review

I feel like I have to explain myself when it comes to Dough Loco. Their doughnuts look so beautiful and inviting, and I’ve tried a bunch of their flavors (chocolate, raspberry Sriracha, cinnamon sugar, maple miso and pineapple brown butter), but I am just not major fan of them. I think that they make a […] more…

Weight Gain, But Not From Food

Weight Gain, But Not From Food

Surprise, surprise, I have been blaming all of my weight gain on eating a lot, but looking back, I think it simply isn’t 100% true. In the past 7-8 months, I have had to switch back and forth between some medications and think that my body has been constantly trying to adjust them and one […] more…

The Valentine’s Macaron Massacre

Trying to stay on a clean eating kick this week has really hindered my going out. I’ve been trying to keep myself busy at home and one of the things that I have been doing is going to food photos on my computer that I never wrote about. Apparently there are a ton. I like […] more…
