Dog Biscuits

As a puppy mom, every time I bake cookies for myself, for friends – basically, other humans – I would feel super guilty when I looked down to see a pair of puppy eyes asking me: “Where are my treats mom?” NOW, I don’t have to feel that guilt any longer! This recipe is for… Continue Reading


Overnight Cinnamon Rolls

  This is my last weekend before I go back to classes and adulting. I wanted to make this last weekend memorable, so I did it in the best way I know how – BAKING! I have made these cinnamon rolls a few times before, and they are always a HIT! From friends to my… Continue Reading


Phoenix Buns (Egg Custard Buns)

Let me start off this post by saying that my love of phoenix buns was born from my love of hot pot. The hot pot restaurant I go to around here, and back home is Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot in Mountain View. REAL TALK: I really like the hot pot but I LOVE THE… Continue Reading

Many times, I have these late-night cravings and NO BARK THINS. BUT, I… Continue Reading


Cute Carrot Cupcakes

So…parents always tell us that vegetables are good for us… but do us children ever listen? Rarely.

While that might have been true (the fact that I did not eat enough carrots), was my… Continue Reading


Grilled Cheese

I HAVE NEVER MADE GRILLED CHEESE BEFORE TODAY. I REPEAT: I HAVE NEVER MADE GRILLED CHEESE BEFORE TODAY. Reason: I thought it was so complicated and intricate, and I always wondered how people got that char of toasted brown on the bread! Obviously, growing up in a traditionally Korean household, neither of my parents made grilled… Continue Reading


Tomato Soup: Healthy & Simple

When I was an undergraduate freshman in the dorms, I had A LOT of Campbell’s soup, especially the ones that had the letters in it. Do you all know what I am talking about? The ones with the soggy ABCS? I know that I could have bought the ones that didn’t have the mushy letters… Continue Reading
