This creamy mushroom cauliflower gnocchi is the perfect recipe to whip up if you're short on time, if you're craving something hearty and delicious. It's creamy, and every bite of the well-flavored, well-seasoned sauce pairs perfectly with the chewy gnocchi. Your kitchen will be smelling like heavenly mushrooms for a good few hours afterwards, though (not a problem, of course).
Ma lai gao (马拉糕) is a popular dim sum dessert, alongside the ever-popular salted-egg yolk custard bao. It's essentially a sponge cake with a beautiful caramel color due to the brown sugar, and because it's steamed, ma lai gao is a fluffy, soft and gorgeous cake (it will literally spring back if you push down on it!).
Red-braised pork belly (Chinese: 红烧肉) has been a staple of my childhood diet -- and now that I've moved out of Texas, it was the first thing that I was determined to learn how to make. It's made with a wonderful mix of spices, cooking wine, a soy sauce power duo, and more. What you end up with is soft, melt-in-your mouth pork belly from a two-hour long braising process, and a thick, subtly sweet sauce that's perfect for drizzling over white rice.
Here's an extremely simple yet delicious lil' recipe for Amber Walnuts to add a bit of spice and edge to your life! 🙂
My mom loves to bake, and she's frequently sending me photos of her latest creations as I stay in my dorm eating ramen and mac & cheese. *cries* Anyways, this time, she made Zebra Stripe Japanese Cotton Cheesecake, which looks amazingly good, so I thought I'd share it with y'all too!
As with everyone else this quarantine, I have definitely on a baking rampage this weekend (more like, every weekend): after buying some on-sale cookie butter, I figured I'd try one of the many recipes that involved cookie butter. The easiest? These cookie butter brown sugar cookies!
Although the brunt of summer has passed us, it’s always fun to have an indoor activity to take me away from the extreme Texas heat (that lasts until mid-December...). One of my favorite things to do is to explore new and easy recipes for healthy snacks that I can snack on the rest of the day or after a sweaty workout -- and not feel guilty!
Wontons are a classic Chinese dumpling variation: instead of like their semi-circle cousins, wontons are made from a square wrapper and usually have less filling (but of course, this just means you can eat more of them in one sitting). They're literally a soul-warming meal, especially if you eat them alongside the hot soup, with a generous dollop of spicy chili crisps and green onions.
This recipe is one of my favorites: it's my attempt to replicate the famous Auntie Anne's softest cinnamon sugar pretzels. It's a pretty simple recipe too -- and hopefully will satisfy your cinnamon sugar pretzel needs.
Goat cheese in eggs - now that just sounds like heresy, doesn’t it? And I’m not gonna lie - this dish is odd at first bite; however, this is a good first impression. Each bite invites you further into the food and you accelerate your curiosity until you’ve destroyed the dish and feel satisfied beyond any initial wonderment.
