Braided Bread 1 - Contemplating a blogging break + my favorite Braided Bread recipe [VIDEO]

If you’ve been wondering why I haven’t been posting a lot or making new recipe videos lately, it’s because I haven’t been in the blogging groove for a long while now. I haven’t been feeling like myself these past few months. I’m not normally this uninspired and dispirited. I had expected that at some point, …

#ReturnToReal California Cheese with this Cheesy Garlic, Bacon, & Jalapeño Pull-Apart Bread

Calif Cheese 1 - #ReturnToReal California Cheese with this Cheesy Garlic, Bacon, & Jalapeño Pull-Apart Bread

Ahh pull-apart breads. I really wish they would become mainstream because more people need to know about this awesomeness. It’s basically a loaf of bread, but you peel it apart layer by flavorful layer to reveal the filling that hides within. It is especially exciting to eat this when the filling involves California Cheese. And …

Despite having been open for years, I was not at all familiar with Oedo until I heard an aunt mention it to my Dad. She talked about how it had become her go-to place with my Uncle whenever she was too lazy to cook at home. Being the fan of Japanese food that we are, …

Morning Coffee Muffins 1 - Have breakfast in bed with these Morning Coffee Muffins (feat. Jimm's Cafe Clara)

It’s been a while since I last made a muffin that I loved as much as I loved these Morning Coffee Muffins. There’s something to the pleasantly deep flavor of it that was such a hit to me. Normally, when you buy chocolate chip muffins from the store, it’s got this sweet vanilla taste made …

Looking to #BeefUp your meals? Try BonChon’s Korean Beef Stew

Bonchon Korean Beef Stew 1 - Looking to #BeefUp your meals? Try BonChon's Korean Beef Stew

One of my greatest frustrations when eating at quick service restaurants is how sometimes they have the tendency to serve watered-down dishes. This is especially true when it comes to dishes involving beef. We all know beef is best when it is well-flavored and when the texture is just right. I will never understand how …
