Hello friends, readers, and reading-friendly strangers. Welcome back to Young, Poor, and Hungry. As some of you may know, I’ve been entertaining ideas as to how to bring this blog back for years and failing to find inspiration. I just looked back at my post history and confirmed that this baby started back in 2010, […]Read more "Revival"
Do you ever have one of those days where you walk into your kitchen, look in your pantry/fridge, and wonder what you can make that will use all your odds and ends while still being edible? This meal stemmed from one of those days. I picked through my veggies and put random combinations into google […]Read more "Quick Post: Thai Long Bean, Tomato, and Cucumber Salad"
First things first, I want to apologize to my blog here. I’m sorry blog, for neglecting you for so incredibly long. Sure I moved a few times, picked up and dropped a few different jobs, fled a country or two, BUT guess what, that’s over now. No more neglecting my cooking, my crafts, or my […]Read more "Blueberry and Ricotta Pancakes"
I feel like people really take postickers for granted. Sure they can be hit or miss sometimes, maybe the wrapper is too thick and gummy or the filling is bland but when potstickers are made well…they…are…AWESOME. I’ve had a bajillion different kinds of potstickers, dumplings, gyozas, etc. over the years and I’ve loved nearly all […]Read more "Pork Potstickers"

It’s famous for its xiao long bao (soup dumplings) and the noodles are hand pulled fresh every day. It. Is. AWESOME. If I could, I would go there everyday and feast on all the amazing noodles, […]Read more "Quick Post: Dan Dan Mian"
Soooo I’m back again. For real this time too. Classes are finished, I’ve finally recovered from celebrating the end of classes, and I had a ridiculously easy exam schedule. With this term is over, I’ve only got to take two more classes during the summer to finish off my Bachelor degree. The realization that I […]Read more "Beef Stroganoff"
One of my favorite things in the world to do is to go grocery shopping. Probably not much of a surprise seeing as how I’m obsessed with food and all but whatever, it’s my favsies. I always try to go for groceries at LEAST once a week because there are always sweet new weekly bargains […]Read more "Gone Fishin: Black Bean Whole Trout"
Sooooooooooooooooo I guess I took a bit of an unexpected hiatus there…sooorry about that. You didn’t miss much though. I’m still poor, subsisting on quesadillas and mac n’ cheese, and blowing the last of my cash on concert tickets and cheap beer…basically being your typical college student. My lack of funds led to a pretty […]Read more "Indian Cookin Part 3: Vegetable Samosas"
I think I might have been very spoiled growing up. I’ve had the good fortune of always living in very diverse areas full of different kinds of ethnic stores and restaurants and lord knows I went to them all. Going for sushi or italian or dim sum was an everyday occurrence and for a long […]Read more "Dim Sum Cravings: Green Onion Pancakes"
Sooooo I’m broke. I don’t think that’s much of a surprise to anyone though; I’m a student, I have failed so far at scoring a job, AND I really set myself up by including poor in my blog title. I spent this weekend away in Seattle with some pals so I spent the week leading […]Read more "Broke Baking: Cheddar and Dill Drop Biscuits"
