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 […]

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 […]

These cookies are sweet and salty in each bite, with chocolate chunks  drizzled with sea salt. A pecan and walnut blend gives bursts of crunch as you eat. It’s a classic chocolate chip cookie, dressed up with sea salt and nuts, with a soft chewy interior. These cookies started when I saw a photo of chocolate […]

My dad’s birthday was last week! So I made him oatmeal macadamia cookies to celebrate. Because of my finals schedule this year, I could not fly home for his birthday so mailed these cookies home. Since his favorite cookie is oatmeal and his favorite nut is macadamia nuts, I combined the two in an oatmeal macadamia […]

Easy delicious cream cheese swirl cookies that are vegan too! Perfect for picnics and gifting. I made these two years ago, non-vegan edition. They melted in my mouth at first bite, and I knew I’d make these again. They are good as a cookie, or crumbled into ice cream for an ice-cream party. If you’re […]

Hello! My family went to Canada for a week last week on vacation. We visited Banff and Jasper National Parks and both where astoundingly beautiful (pictures to come!). However after one week of traveling I missed home cooking, my oven, and DESSERT. Also the amazing California sunshine. These caramel blondies are the first thing I […]

Vegan Chocolate Chip cookies

These are the *yummiest* chocolate chip cookies that I have made yet. They are chewy, with a soft chocolatey center that fills your mouth with melted chocolate when they are warm right out of the oven. And the best part is, these cookies are vegan! Many people equate vegan baked goods to bland or less […]

Pumpkin reminds me of fall, and these cookies are a delicious blend of the kick you get from pumpkin spice with the smooth flavor of honey. I made these cookies for a pre-Thanksgiving potluck before everyone headed home for break. They were a hit! The cookies are soft and chewy on the inside. I just […]

I’ve started Med school! It’s been great so far, with lots and lots of information, most of it very new and interesting. There are also so many nice people in my class, it’s been really fun getting to know them. The university gave each of us a white coat (with our names on them!) and […]
