Hot Pot leftovers

We had a lot of left overs from hot pot. Therefore, we decided to cook some wheat noodles and make a couple bowls of soup noodles. We simmered up some extra ingredients like taro, mushrooms, etc. along with some added vegetables. Once heated, we poured it over our cooked wheat noodles.

Hot Pot

Hot pot (also known as: Chinese fondue or fire pot) is one of my favorites during the winter months. It’s also great for groups and festive times like a family Christmas dinner! Hot pot, as the name suggests, involves a simmering hot pot placed over either a portable gas stove or an electric stove, at...

Ultimate dinner from home

Home cooking has got to be the best. Often when I go home to visit my mom, I would ask her to cook a bunch of her amazing dishes. She would then portion them out and package them into frozen bags. Thanks to the creation of heavy duty zip lock bags and vacuum seal storage...

This year it was held...

Today is 7-11 Day!!!

Slurpees are one of my favorite frozen drinks ever since I was a little kid. It’s so refreshing and those brain freezes you get when you drink it too fast… wow, who can forget those. On 7-11 Day, 7-Eleven stores gives out complimentary 7.11oz Slurpees!!! (Too bad they don’t have one here where I am...

LookyTasty: The Beginning

Lately, I’ve been traveling quite a lot. Traveling means that you’ll probably not be cooking and will end up eating at quite a few restaurants. Whenever I go out to eat, I always liked taking photos of the dishes that I order. I think it has something to do with capturing the moment, before I...
