When it comes to protein, meats like chicken and beef tend to get all the love. But for me, lamb is probably my favorite. Here, I'm sharing three different ways to eat lamb, based on three of my favorite Chinese recipes.
Shu mai (烧卖) is probably one of my top three favorite dim sum items, so here's our family recipe to share with you guys! They're a part of the dumpling family, but are open-faced so you can see all the goodness inside!
Covfefe - some love it; others can’t live without it (I’m looking at you David 🤧). But we can all agree coffee is good; coffee lets us work harder for longer and it just gives us a boost when we need it the most. And for a grad and medical school student pairing, we sure do treasure our coffee. This admiration (and lowkey obsession) are why we wanted to share with you guys our way of crafting the ultimate Cup O’ Jo’ - pourover edition :).
In honor of National Peanut Butter day, and as avid peanut butter lovers, we'd like to share one of the simplest recipes ever -- homemade Nutter Butter cookie sandwiches! Nutter Butter cookies were all the craze for us growing up, and this quick recipe replicates the simplicity and joy of childhood. It's perfect as a snack throughout the day, and will ensure you get that protein in, too!
In honor of (one of my) favorite days of the year, I wanted to share this really quick and easy recipe for margherita pizza. It's halfway between a complete cheat day (i.e. Domino's night, otherwise known as study-until-2-am-finals-night) and a full Gordon Ramsey, everything-from-scratch night.
There's always room in the day for ramen and smiles! Here is our recipe for the quintessential college dorm, late-night snack: Maruchan ramen, topped to restaurant-level.
It's National Pie Day! Here's a fun and incredibly easy cream cheese pie. It'll take less than an hour, and looks beautifully designed with fruits. The fruit can be arranged in whatever pattern you like, and provide a tart contrast to the sweetness of the pie itself.
Hokkaido Milk Bread is a Japanese-style bread that's incredibly soft and fluffy, subtly sweet and beautifully-buttery. This pull-apart bread is great for making sandwiches, or just enjoying by itself with a nice warm cup of green tea.
It's He Zi recipe, round two! This time, we tackle the more traditional version of He Zi -- a popular Chinese street food item consisting of chopped chives and eggs, and of course, as the name suggests, shaped like a box.
Chinese egg tarts are popular treats found all over Chinatown, particularly in tea houses as a dim sum dish. Egg tarts are prominent in Guangzhou's food scene, and scholars call it the "quintessential symbol of the fusion between Cantonese and Western cultures."
