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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Banana Cream Cake

banana cream cake

Banana bread was the first dessert that had me hooked on baking. So soft and moist, and turning my least favorite fruit into something much more magical. I used to not like eating bananas back in high school, and when my mom would say “eat some bananas they are good for you” I would hope […]

Easy Saucy Chow Mein

If there is one thing the Savoring Spork loves, it is chow mein – especially saucy chow mein with noodles swimming in a golden brown coat of soy sauce. Chow mein translates to “fried noodles” and is the noodle cousin of fried rice. You can put anything you want in it – make it vegetarian […]

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 […]

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 […]
