As of lately, food porn has been quite the hype. Specifically, indulgent food porn. Whether it be Pinterest boards of peanut butter Oreo brownies, Instagram feeds of donut or pizza-themed cheat days, and Buzzfeed’s Tasty videos of insanely cool desserts that no one would actually make (think unicorn cream puffs or a blue velvet cake made in … More Types of Cheat Meals + How to Take Advantage of Them
Welcome to my first recipe of 2018! Inspiration for this recipe came from some mad chocolate cravings. My love for dark chocolate is already strong in itself, but this time, it was ferociously gnarly. At the same time, I also needed a kick for some creativity. In addition, I’ve noticed that most New Year’s recipes … More Chocolate Roasted Kabocha Squash (with a keto option)

For some strange reason, this year, I tried to manifest my hopes that my family and I would have a home-cooked Christmas feast. Seriously, why on Earth did I believe that such a thing could possibly happen, given that … More Hoisin-Style Tofu

But in all seriousness, like most of us, I am an extremely flawed individual. I knew this … More 2017: The Year of Coming to Terms With My Body + Worst Qualities
Christmas. Two days away. And Christmas Eve is literally TOMORROW. While this post is being published, I’m either raiding the nearest shopping mall in hopes of finding gifts for my family or covering my entire house with wrapping paper while attempting to wrap my gifts because I cannot gift-wrap even if my life depended on it. … More Feeling Serene, Dynamic, and Peaceful
THIS is the major volunteering opportunity for Thanksgiving that I wanted to talk about in my last Tuesday Thoughts post! I remember my last visit at Cafe Gratitude–it was gorgeous, memorable and sweet with a new hippie vibe I adored and food I devoured. I still dream about my banana bread and “I Am Terrific” … More Volunteering at Cafe Gratitude + Asian Thanksgiving?
