Recipe: Beef and Mushroom Stew in an Instant Pot

Our latest addition to the cabinet of kitchen appliances is the Instant Pot. We got one over the holidays and it hasn’t failed to impress with every dish prepared so far. It’s like having a bunch of appliances in one. It’s a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, and yogurt maker. You can use...

Here’s a dish that’s perfect for minus degree weather. This recipe is from my roommate. This is a Korean dish that is easy...

Destination Chicago: Ken Kee Restaurant

Ken Kee Restaurant, a small restaurant located in Chinatown with lots of yummy Cantonese and Hong Kong style dishes on their menu. Two things that caught my eye! 1. Cheap prices! 2. Authentic Cantonese fast food (not the Americanized ones you find with names like “Happy Dragon Lucky Chinese restaurant”)! The wait was long (well,...
