July 27, 2015 Breakfast

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 […]

Avocado Egg Toast

June 8, 2015 Breakfast
avocado egg toast

This is one of the simplest breakfasts that I make. It started with a jar of chipotle powder I had gotten almost two years ago, which I rarely used. Not sure what to put it in, the powder sat closed in my cabinet for months and the only time they made an appearance was when I […]

Imagine rolling out of bed to the smell of crispy eggs, sitting on a bed of chipotle draped potatoes, peppers, and sausage. Avocado toast awaits, with orange juice saying “drink me!” You pop your eyes open to see it was a dream. But a dream you can easily recreate with this recipe! You may be surprised […]

I have finally made it out of the dungeons of  my pre-clinical year med school finals, and it feels really good to be done with class forever. When the last final finished, my classmates celebrated at the fourth floor of the building we had classes in every day for the last 1.5 years and let out […]

These pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes are the perfect addition to your breakfast or brunch table. Moist and sweet, with pumpkin flavor.

Moist banana muffins with sweet drizzle

July 14, 2014 Breakfast
vegan banana muffins

I used to make banana bread pretty regularly using butter and sour cream. It was tasty, but pretty unhealthy, so not something I would eat for breakfast. This banana muffin is the healthier and moister version of the banana bread I used to make. Plus it’s vegan! Because this is the lightened up version, you […]

Red Bean Soup | Tang Yuan

Hello! Update: Some of you have asked me where to find certain cooking tools and ingredients, particularly Asian cooking and cake decorating material, so I have set up an amazon shop with links to where I get the things I use. There are annotations under many items about how I use it, and if you have […]

Moist Blueberry Skillet Cake

January 8, 2014 Breakfast
Blueberry Skillet Cake

I made this cake for a Christmas dinner recently. It’s the same recipe as the cranberry cornmeal cake from a few weeks ago. Blueberries make the cake sweeter, less tart, but it is still equally fitting for breakfast or dessert. The greek yogurt and soymilk make this cake extra moist. See recipe here, and simply […]

Cranberry Cornmeal Cake

December 23, 2013 Breakfast

This cake is moist and not too sweet, making it great for dessert or breakfast. Greek yogurt and soy milk give it the moist, and the cranberries bring bursts of tart through the cake. I first saw the recipe on butterlust, who adapted the recipe from Vintage Cakes . Both recipes are very good, and […]

Berry Smoothie

October 20, 2013 Breakfast

Fall happens later in California than in most states, which means berries are available longer. This smoothie is one I have for breakfast frequently during the summer and early fall. It’s strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, (and a banana) and manages to combine almost all of my favorite fruits into one meal. I also like how this […]
