Caprese Salad

A recipe so simple, you’ll be wondering why you haven’t tried making this already!

I didn’t put measurements for the ingredients because I don’t think there is an actual correct “serving size” for this heh. You could make this as a hors d’oeuvre, snack, appetizer, or even as a meal! It’s something you could easily make more of if you need a bigger portion, but also something you could keep in the fridge for a couple days if you end up with extra. (more…)

Patbingsoo

Patbingsoo is a popular dessert eaten in Korea during the summer. Although the weather’s cold now since fall is here, I love to have it anytime I want something refreshing throughout the year!

Red Bean Shaved Ice

Red Bean Shaved Ice

What started off as simply shaved ice and sweetened azuki beans (‘pat’), the dessert has evolved into a fancy dish that now includes various toppings such as:

  • ice cream
  • condensed milk
  • fresh fruit
  • nuts
  • cereal
  • rice cake

It’s like a luxurious snowcone, but in a bowl (which makes it even better because there’s no need to worry about anything melting and dripping anywhere)!

Nutella Hot Chocolate

As October comes to an end, fall season has finally arrived in SB – with the morning air beginning to feel crispy, the skies getting gloomy, and the nights becoming too chilly to go out without a jacket. With fall season comes warm layers, comfy sweatpants, more Netflix in bed, and the oh-so-famous pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks (how can we forget?!).

Personally, their pumpkin spice latte tastes too artificial and sweet for me. You know what I’d rather have?

A cup of nutella hot chocolate.

NUTELLAAA

Yaaaasssssss. (more…)

Elote

“Honk, honk!”

This is a sound I hear almost everyday from “The Mexican Corn Man” as he walks up and down the streets of my neighborhood with a cart full of corn and mangoes. He usually makes a stop right outside my apartment, letting his presence be known loud and clear with his horn. For only $2, you can get a customized elote from this wonderful man. I equate the sound of his horn to that of an ice cream truck because it makes me feel all happy inside 🙂
