It’s really crazy to think it’s already midway through October! It feels like it hasn’t been that long since school started in late August. Maybe it’s just the ridiculous amount ...

Happy Monday! (I honestly never thought I’d say those words… ever!) They always say you should start your day off with breakfast since it’s the most important meal of the day and all that other stuff. But, what do you do if you (gasp!) don’t like breakfast? You look for a better, more exciting breakfast […]
Labor Day has, unfortunately, come to a close. I found myself crying myself to sleep last night, solely because my extended three-day weekend came to an untimely end. Why me? I bawled. Why so soon? But of course, the end of breaks are inevitable. No matter how often I’d pray as a young child for some extension of […]
Hello from New York City! I just arrived in the Big Apple yesterday evening. Within just the first few hours of getting into New York, I met with some of my relatives and had dinner and dessert overlooking Times Square. The bright, flashy lights of Times Square were completely breathtaking. I’ll have a post filled […]
It’s been a few years since I last stepped foot in the Waldorf Astoria New York. It was my first trip to the Big Apple, a city I had always dreamed of seeing, even in my young, fresh-out-of-fourth-grade body. To make it even better, I was staying in the Waldorf Astoria New York, a luxury […]
This Thursday, we here in America are going to be celebrating the Fourth of July, American Independence Day. A day filled with patriotism—and barbecue!—awaits! No Fourth of July celebration is complete without sides though, and as a country that values diversity and inclusion, here are some unique side dishes inspired by our friends to the […]
At Me So Hungry in Austin, I tried the lemongrass tofu banh mi—my personal favorite from the truck. With the help of my mom, I have a new recipe today… our take on the banh mi we tried! You can read the full review here. I first tried banh mi last summer in San Francisco, […]
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to visit Me So Hungry, a veg-friendly Asian-fusion food truck in Austin, Texas. The city of Austin is considered the most vegetarian-friendly city in the entire United States, with nearly every single restaurant or food truck offering vegetarian—and quite often, a vegan—options. And in some places, it’s […]
One of the most common excuses I hear from people who say they could “never become vegetarian” is that they wouldn’t know what to make if they couldn’t cook with meat. When my mom and I began thinking of possible vegetarian (and even some vegan!) meals, we realized there is a plethora of great and easy […]
I think Korean food is just naturally yummy. From all-you-can-eat samgyeopsal—which is pretty much the only meat I’ll really and truly miss!—to freshly-cooked bibimbap. Korea seems to produce a lot of good stuff: K-Pop idols, pajeon, samgyeopsal, K-dramas, pajeon… Whoops. I guess it shows you what I’ve been thinking about lately: pajeon, or Korean pancakes. […]
If there’s one thing I absolutely love, it’s fried rice! Whenever my mom makes it, the aroma brings me straight to the kitchen. After a party we had, our fridge had a giant tub of fried rice left over. Guess what I ate for the next two days? The egg rolls that we also had […]
