Hello there! I’m currently on my neurology rotation and recently made the switch from inpatient neurology to outpatient. Inpatient neurology means patients are living in the hospital while the medical team takes care of them, and was a combination of stroke patients and various neurological diseases ranging from severe migraine to spinal cord disease. It’s […]

Bloopers and Highlights of 2015

December 30, 2015 Recipe Roundup

Hello from my Grandparents’ place! I’m staying with them for the holidays, and wrapping up bloopers from this year while looking at their view from the 22nd floor (which coming from California where everything is flat, I can never get enough of especially at night when the city lights are twinkling!). I had two big […]

Fondant People

Instead of a recipe today, I’m sharing a tutorial on how I make fondant people. They are very fun to make, and make cute cake toppers. If you want the fondant people to keep their shape extra well, you can use a mixture of 1/2 fondant, 1/2 gum paste instead of all fondant. The gum […]

Caramel Pumpkin Cake

Pumpkin caramel cake

Silky pumpkin pie is one of my favorite desserts of the Fall. With Halloween around the corner, there is no shortage of caramel candies either. When I was young enough to trick or treat, I remember picking out the caramels and the toffees among the sea of snickers, dum dums, and milky ways filling my candy […]

Pina Colada Smoothie

Before the end of summer, I wanted to share a summer drink recipe that is one of my favorites! The simple pina colada smoothie. A mix of the coconut milk, pineapple, and banana lends a very tropical taste to this smoothie. It reminds of the time my parents and I went o Hawaii during college, and there […]

The Spork and I spent an amazing week in NYC and DC and between the two of us consumed 20 desserts. This is of course not counting the salted chocolate chip cookies I made and packed for the trip just incase we didn’t encounter enough dessert. I am happy to report we ate those as […]

As the Spork and I travel on the East coast, we are staying at an Airbnb where the homeowners have two dogs. It took a lot of convincing on my part, and grumbling from him (he’s not really into dogs, especially the poop and slobber), but I convinced him this is the best place to stay and […]

The other day when I was talking to the Spork, he told me he had never eaten a blueberry muffin before due to his allergy to milk. With it being berry season, I knew I had to make some blueberry muffins for him, so he could see what they tasted like. These blueberry crumb muffins are vegan […]

In many ways, I feel my dad is one of my best friends. After my family moved to the United States, I had some serious issues speaking English (didn’t speak any at first). Because I couldn’t communicate with my classmates in elementary school, it was really hard to play with them even though I wanted […]

June 15, 2015 Cakes
green tea cupcakes

I have long been a fan of green tea – whether the tea for drinking or any food that is green tea flavored. This is my simple go-to green tea cupcake. The best part is – a lot of this cupcake can be make-ahead. For example – you can bake the stumps and freeze them […]
