DSC_0031 The most satisfying meal is one that is home-cooked. While I am an avid foodie that embraces any opportunity to go out and eat, my mouth waters at the though of eating at home--especially as a college student living on dorm food and easy mac.

My grandparents have accumulated some amazing recipes over the years, including some of my favorite dishes like dumplings, scallion pancakes, and spicy Sichuan eggplant. It's things like my family's delicious Asian food that make me feel so blessed to be immersed in two different cultures.

Pancakes made of grated squash, flour, and eggs.


Da Cha Zhou!


Tomatoes and sugar, a childhood favorite.
