I learned a few exciting facts recently 1) Things become infinitely kooler if you spell them with a “k” instead of a “c” (I, obvs, am very aware of what is hip and “kool” with kids these days. Please see the title of this post for further proof) 2) My hands are incredibly shaky and […]Read more "Korean Komfort: Japchae (Stir Fried Noodles)"
As I grew up and my exposure to Burmese food increased, I discovered that salads are a fundamental part of Burmese cuisine. There’s tea leaf salad, rice salad, ginger salad, and so on and so forth. Many of them are mixed by hand and include fish sauce, oil, and a variety of aromatics. Some of […]Read more "Burmese Days: Gin Thoke (Ginger Salad)"
One of my New Years Resolutions was to be better and more consistent with my blogging….well I’ll admit I’m off to a poor start BUT its not all my fault! School, snow, and a computer in the shop have left me busy and backlogged on recipes. I’ve been cooking a LOT so I’ve got plenty […]Read more "Burmese Days: Pork Curry"
While I was home in California neglecting you all, I made a variety of delicious Burmese dishes that I want to share with you now. Burmese food can seem a bit involved but it is delicious and worth any extra effort it may require. My mom is burmese and she has seven brothers and sisters.

Speaking from experience, I can say that holiday eating is beyond deadly for the waistline. We’ve already received four different boxes/tins of candy and I know for a fact that there will be more. The holiday parties I’ve attended so far boasted an array of cheeses, crackers, cookies, and in a few cases, pizzas, further […]Read more "Healthy Holiday: Tomato Vegetable Soup"
Being at home definitely has its perks. There’s the free food, the parents to make fun of…aaaaand the awesome kitchen gadgets! We’ve got a standing mixer (be still my heart), a huge cuisinart (it works like a DREAM), a cookie press (adorable and retro), a Canon SLR (note the new and improved photos!!!!!!!!!!1), and a […]Read more "Camels, Christmas Trees, and Wreaths!

To get home to Berkeley by the 11th (and my dad’s 50th bday party) I had to switch around an exam and schedule my flight for about 24 hrs after my last exam. As you can imagine this left very little time for goodbyes, cooking, and life in general. Still, I wanted a chance to […]Read more "Simply Lovely: Hot Apple Cider"
K so I’m done finals, I made it home to California, and I’m all settled in with the fam…now where were we? Indian food! Right! O soul healing comfort food, o heavenly combinations of spices, how I love thee……….too much? Fine. It’s been a long week. My Indian feast was a bit of a pre-exams […]Read more "Indian Cookin Part 2: Chicken Masala"
K so I thought that somehow I would magically be able to balance school and blogging. I can’t. I haven’t blogged since the 3rd and definitely won’t be able to start until Friday. BUT FRIDAY! Friday will be so glorious. I will post the rest of the Indian food for you and also hopefully be […]Read more "Exam Hiatus: I’m Not Having the Time of My Life."
I adore Indian food. It’s filling, hearty, and full of delicious spices. I’ve been eating naan, curry, pakoras, etc. for most of my life and looooooving it. We ate out at Indian places a lot BUT we never made our own Indian food. I always assumed it was super complicated and involved. How did they […]Read more "Indian Cookin Part 1: Vegetable Pakora and Naan Bread"
