Sometimes, a food can evoke emotion and memory, even if it isn't one that you have eaten for a long time. I tried curry for the first time when I was 20 at an Indian restaurant, and I didn't like the flavors as much as I expected. Instead, I nibbled on naan bread and felt... Continue Reading →
This is my second adventure with lemon bars, and I think it turned out better this time around. The recipe I referenced is not dairy-free, so I used Melt buttery bar in place of real butter, which gives the base of the bars a hint of coconutty flavor. I chose to only use egg whites,...

When we were in Seattle last month, we went to the historic Panama Hotel in the international district and had matcha lattes which were DELICIOUS. I finally splurged today on some matcha ($17 for 1.5 oz), but it is such a nice and tasty treat!

Today was supposed to be a busy, productive day, but I woke up with a terrible migraine. So instead, it turned into a relaxing, lazy baking day. I started the ciabatta dough last night so the yeast could sit, then continued the process around 2 pm this afternoon. I had to relax a while until... Continue Reading →
I've recently discovered that I quite enjoy cooking and baking. I always knew I loved eating, but there's a certain joy to working to create something new. I recently tried this, a Japanese "pancake," which is really a pan-cooked souffle. It has a very simple recipe but took a few tries to get right. You will... Continue Reading →
