I have a great news to share with everyone.  My one and only brother Jean had his first baby girl this weekend.   I became an auntie to a beautiful baby girl Alicia.  She is  so tiny but yet so perfect and precious in every way.  To welcome baby Alicia home, I decided to make some […]

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Fried-Zucchini Spaghetti

I recently realized that I have some commonalities with Gwyneth Paltrow. Maybe not the height, or the beauty, or her acting ability, but I am happy to admit that we both  enjoy food/cooking, we value family and kids, we appreciate fashion, love blogging and last but not least watching Glee – actually probably my favorite […]

Celebrating Autumn – Butternut Squash and Vanilla Risotto

I love butternut squash and I look for ways to incorporate them in my food preparation.  When I came across the risotto recipe in Giada’s book, Giada’s Kitchen, I was intrigued by the addition of vanilla bean and really wanted to try it.   I added the recipe to my recent shopping list and thought […]

Quick & Easy Mini Pizza Buns!

Today was another day that I had to rush dinner after work.  I opened the fridge and started thinking what can I make that can be quick and family friendly?

Grilled Potato Salad with Creamy Herbal Dressing

I was asked to bring a potato salad for a family July 4th party.  Well, not really asked… It’s more like I volunteered to bring something and my friend suggested that I bring a potato salad.  But because I am such a difficult person, I could not settle for just buying one from the store.  […]

Fried Fresh Mozzarella with Mushroom Ragu

I bought some fresh mozzarella from Trader Joe’s and was thinking what I can cook with it.  I really loved the way it was packaged.  It was already pre-sliced and ready for sandwiches, or frying.  After opening the package, I transferred the contents (including the water) into a tupperware.   Then I did some recipe […]
