My version of bibimbap (“hot pot”)

When I worked in South San Francisco there was a restaurant my co-workers and I frequented, Mom’s Tofu House. It was good and cheap (service isn’t great). We nicknamed it hot pot, as the food we ordered came in a hot pot (really a hot stone pot). I decided to recreate my favorite dish, tofu […]

Grateful for new recipe

Today I am going to share a recipe with you, which was shared with me by my friend Monica. Monica had lunch one day recently with a friend who replicated a recipe from Cafe Gratitude.

Being lazy while roasting Brussels sprouts

I decided to be “lazy” and not go to yoga tonight. I just wasn’t feeling it. I just feel tired. So I decided to just hang on the couch and watch some episodes of Parenthood and drink wine. For dinner I made Brussels sprouts. I normally make them in the rice cooker/steamer. But I decided […]

Recipes can be modified to be healthier

Guest Post: Alicia, a third-timer! I’m a great baker, but the problem is there are only so many cookies, cakes, pies, etc. anyone can eat before their pants start to explode. All this means is that a girl has to learn to how to cook “normal” food, too. Cooking means saving money and calories from […]


Guest Post: Alexa

Confessions of a Foodie (back) on the Weight Watchers Bandwagon I’m the kind of girl who considers cooking her most favorite hobby. Roasting, baking, braising, slow cooking, barbecueing, grilling, smoking, canning, preserving, butter making–this is what I like to do with my free time. In fact, in order to get fresher ingredients, I ripped out […]
