There’s nothing quite the same as finals week. You study, study, study for the past week and a half (if you’re a good student), take the test, then promptly forget about it all as you walk out the door and … Continue reading
Hey there! I have a confession: Lately I’ve been void of inspiration for recipes. I’ve been racking my brain over and over for a good recipe to share, but every time I do, I’m dead tired and want to just … Continue reading
I was always told that macarons were difficult to make. But capitalistic me thought “Eh! I’m a pretty good baker, I think I can succeed where everyone else has failed!” Silly me. After an overcooked set, an extremely cracked set, … Continue reading
My dog is scared of our dining room table. True fact. It was looking a little shabby, so my dad put some wood polish on the surface, and now my dog won’t come near the table. And so we had … Continue reading
My brother came home for a week from University to visit us, and of course we had to spoil him with food. He’s extremely skinny and dresses that way so my mom and dad wanted to fatten him up before … Continue reading
School’s finally over! Woohoo! We had a picnic to commemorate it and there were bags and bags of food. Of course we couldn’t finish it all (I wish I could) but they packed it all away before I had a … Continue reading
Welcome to the first “Top 5 Thursday!” This is a series where I’m going to upload top 5 list on Thursday instead of Friday. I love lists, especially top 5 lists, so I decided– why not do one of my own?
This first list is over after school snacks. After a long day at school, it’s nice to kick back, take a walk with your dog, and have a nice snack before
procrastinating working on your homework. You know, just a little pick me up without the “pick me up”, if you know what I mean (:
These range from light and refreshing to filling. Homemade? Sometimes. But some of the best snacks aren’t homemade (i.e., gummy bears).
These lists won’t be every week, just when a good list is compiled.
I’m going to go get a snack right now… can you guess which one it is?
Young Coconut. Coconuts are gifts from God. I love coconuts so much. Coconut water and coconut flesh are great. If you close your eyes, you can imagine you’re on the beach. Young coconuts are full of nutrients and are low calorie, if you’re into that sort of thing. If it rained coconuts instead of manna, that would’ve been terrific. Actually–now that I think about it, concussions would’ve been exponentially increased if that were the case.
Cheese & Crackers. Who doesn’t love good ‘ol fashioned cheese and crackers? We’re not too good at pairing cheeses with things because, well, we don’t usually eat cheese. My parents aren’t big fans of cheese, but us, being second-generation Asian Americans, love it. Here, we have Smoked Gouda, our favorite, with black olives, since my sister can eat them like grapes. What’s your favorite cheese?
Homemade Larabars. Bars are the epitome of school snacks. Healthify it with no added sugar. It’s an acquired taste, but it’s a nice acquired taste. Like tea. Which brings me to…
Bubble Tea. Enough said.
Cucumber and Jellyfish Salad. Especially in the summer months, and especially when you need something to get you going for the rest of the day, and when you’re feeling Asian. You know, all around good snack.
What’s your favorite afterschool snack?
I remember the first time I had Larabars. It was during Cross Country. People brought snacks for the whole group, and once this girl brought Larabars. The one I had was the Chocolate Chip Cookie, so I was intrigued. I … Continue reading
Every country has their famous dish, or maybe even stereotypical dish. Italy has spaghetti and pizza. France has their escargot. Vietnam has their pho; Thailand their Pad Thai. And let’s not forget Japan’s sushi. I feel as if master sushi … Continue reading
Guess what. No really, guess what. We…. GOT A DOG! Oooooh my goodness he’s adorable. They said he was 4 years old, but… he can’t keep up with jogging. So he’s probably around… 7? We decided to call him Toffee, … Continue reading
