It's about time, Friday! Am I right???? This week has been wonderful, and I've nothing to complain about (well, there are things, but I'll keep them to myself), but seriously, my brain is fried. I mean like no neurons firing, can hardly remember my name, please somebody give me some... Continue reading

You know those weekends where you need a weekend to recover from the weekend? Yeah, that's how this past weekend was for me. MF and I went to a wedding on Long Island for one of his friends from home whose fiancee is from the island. MF and I drove... Continue reading

Are you a believer that everything happens for a reason? I am. Well, I am now. Because if I hadn't gotten locked out of my house for over an hour on Sunday morning, I wouldn't have this cake to share with you today. :) My sis (not to be confused... Continue reading

Happy September! Please tell me I'm not the only one who feels like it can't possibly be fall already? And yet, at the same time, totally excited for cool weather, sweatpants, and fall food! I am a creature of the summer - I thrive in the sunshine and I don't... Continue reading

Oh, hi. Do you remember me? Little Asian girl who loves butter, Ryan Gosling, and carbs? I completely understand if you don't -- I know I've been on an extended hiatus from blogging. And while, I could rattle off a list of excuses, the only one you really need to... Continue reading

May 22nd. For most people, it's just another day. For teachers, it's one day closer to summer vacation. For me, it's a Special Special Day. May 22nd is the day I was adopted. This day, 29 years ago, I flew halfway around the world, leaving an orphanage in Pusan,... Continue reading

Guys. I'm sorry. I've been a very bad blogger lately. By bad, I mean absent. And I'm sorry. I appreciate your inquiries of concern and your comments that you've been checking, but I haven't posted a new recipe in awhile. Your loyalty is unwavering and I am undeserving. But, sometimes,...

Something happened the other night that made me wonder 2 things. First, is chocoholism a real disease? Second, for those of you in relationships, do you remember the defining moment when your relationship crossed the line into intimacy (I'm not talking about physical intimacy) because I'm pretty sure that line...

Is it the weekend yet?? I know, I know. It's only Monday. I'm talking crazy talk. I'm not one to wish away time or live for the weekends, and it's not the full 5 day work week with 3 shifts at my second job and 2 early morning meetings and... Continue reading

Look, it's Friday. We made it. The end is in sight. I want to talk about life and tell you lots of things, but we'll save that for next week. All you need to know right now is that I made you rice krispie treats. They're exactly like regular rice... Continue reading

I am severely suffering from writer's block in this moment. I wrote a whole paragraph about how I love made-up words and acronyms, but it sounded ridiculous so I deleted it. I was writing about made-up words and acronyms because I suspect you might be wondering what a "skookie" is.... Continue reading

Happy Birthday to me! I bought myself some flowers and I baked myself a birthday cake - not because there aren't people who would have happily baked bought me a cake (or flowers), but because I wanted a very specific kind of cake with a very specific frosting. Marshmallow frosting.... Continue reading

I am in need of some inspiration. Maybe it's the weather. Maybe it's staring down the neck of 29 (less than 1 week! GAH). Maybe it's not getting enough sleep last night. I don't know. I'm just ready for a change. Life change. Big. Life. Change. Don't get me wrong,... Continue reading

January is coming to a close and I can't help but wonder how many people are still holding strong to their resolutions. Judging by the number of people still flocking to the gym in the evenings, I might guess, a lot. My resolutions? Well, I'm cursing less, but haven't stopped... Continue reading

I would do almost anything to eat a warm piece of this cake right now. I'll spare you the gruesome details, but suffice to say that I have been battling a GI problem since Friday night that has rendered me appetite-less. Those of you who know me know how devastating... Continue reading

I am borderline euphoric right now. It is Thursday afternoon. My work day is done and all that stands between me and Friday is a bartending shift, but even that can't bring down my happy happy mood! I promise I'll share a ridiculous recipe with you tomorrow (one that caused... Continue reading

Poor pound cake. Who likes pound cake? Everyone. Who ever thinks to bake pound cake? No one. Pound cake is such an underrated overlooked dessert. Have you ever heard someone say, "gosh I have such a craving for a piece of pound cake." Or, "I got the best dessert last... Continue reading

Oh, hey, hi there. I'm getting back into the swing of blogging recipes (I have so many stock piled for you!) so today I thought we'd go with something really simple, but so delicious just to ease ourselves back into things. I know it's the new year and so many... Continue reading

This may come as a surprise to you, but I eat a lot of cookies. Oh, I'm sorry. What's that? You're not surprised? You know about my inner cookie-loving fat kid? Cool. The reason why I'm making a point to proclaim my cookie expertise is because the recipe I'm about... Continue reading

I'm trying to be proactive on the cookie front for you this year. Recent studies have made it clear to me that the people want cookies. And by "recent studies" I mean, I am asked at least once by various people in a variety of places almost everyday whether I've... Continue reading

I have no doubt that you are probably sick and tired of all things turkey and cranberry, and while I understand your plight, I can not really empathize because I did not have a week's worth of leftovers to enjoy post-Thanksgiving so my turkey and cranberry craving is very much... Continue reading
