September Recent Eats and Updates

Exam sustenance -- smoothie from the roomie, and homemade macarons from a friend. What sweeties :) 

Post exam so I finally have time to cook again :) Chinese rib soup, so just pork rib pieces boiled with ginger and bok choi. 

Birthday cake for the roomie! It was just as intense as the last time I made it...

Mapo tofu -- just throwing together ingredients that I have lying around, so not super authentic but still tasty. I use: ground beef, medium firm tofu, soy sauce, sugar, cornstarch, green onions, and lao gan ma

I've mastered the art of the meal salad! The trick is spring mix with broccoli slaw. Also Trader Joe's sweet and spicy pecans, whee.

Glass noodles with chicken and mushrooms, which I loosely adapted from this recipe. So good, but avoid if you're a cilantro hater cause it calls for a whole bunch.

Skillet chicken and rice with peppers and onions, which I loosely adapted from this recipe. Also delicious. I'm really the worst at following recipes (throw in whatever ingredients/substitutes I have in whatever amounts that I feel like) but it didn't hurt me here. Gotta work on da plating skills though...

This will likely be a series. Until next time, ciao :)


  1. can you make hainan chicken next? :)

    1. I've been meaning to try to make that. Gotta go buy some Asian grocery ingredients first though, I'm running low on stuff :(
