Summer is almost here. Almost. I can feel it creeping around the corner, and I know it will be on full blast as soon as we return from our trip to the Pacific Northwest next month. Luckily, we have amazing locally grown fruits to get me through these humid Southern summers, and nothing says summer […]

Chocolate Chip Banana Pudding with Some Help from the Husband

March 27, 2012

I grew up eating banana pudding. Yes, me. That Taiwanese girl who grew up in Appalachia. My parents served it as a dessert selection in the buffet at their Chinese restaurant. Of course, it was the standard vanilla pudding with vanilla wafers and big slices of banana, but I really did eat almost every day […]

My work life has been busier than ever, filled with restaurant photo shoots, corporate headshots and business portraits. Not to mention the regular flow of branding projects and blog designs. […]

Southern Food Mashup | Szechuan Shrimp Po’ Boys

February 3, 2012

Southern food has a soul and a story. As does Asian cuisine. On this blog I love blending flavors from different cultures. That is what “Southern” food is truly all about. Famed Atlanta chef, Hugh Acheson, said it best in this article: “Southern food is a celebration of the people within the community, using the […]

Holiday Brunch with Friends | A Quiche & A Quick Bread

December 29, 2011

Yesterday a few of my favorite people came over for a holiday brunch. Nothing too fancy, just great people and great conversation, and maybe a few great mimosas as well. And unfortunately (and luckily for me, fortunately), I always like to test out new recipes when I have people over. This time I found two […]

What I’m Thankful For… and Cranberry Goat Cheese Cheesecake

November 25, 2011

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a Friendsgiving, followed by a Thanksgiving dinner at our house, some Black Friday shopping and then another dinner at the in-laws’ house.

Spiced Pear Plum Pie {Love the Pie}

November 16, 2011

This year I discovered a new found love and respect for pie. I used to be more of a cake person, but that’s when the thought of pie brought about visions of pumpkin, chocolate cream and lemon meringue. Me, being not a huge fan of the creams and gel textures would shy away from the […]

Whoopie pies seem to be popping up everywhere now, and after having one of West Egg Cafe’s amazing red velvet whoopie pies, I haven’t been able to get them out of my mind. With such a fun name, I wondered where whoopie pies got them namesake… so, I did a little research: “According to food […]

Pumpkin Butter with Cinnamon Cranberry Biscuits

October 4, 2011

The smell of fall spices brings childhood memories rushing back into my mind. Even though I grew up in a Taiwanese family, I also grew up in a fairly rural part of Southwest Virginia, tucked away in the Appalachian Mountains. A close family friend, who was like a grandmother to me, would always cook a […]
