Black Forest Mochi Balls-2790

Black Forest Mochi Ice Cream

July 24, 2017 | 7 comments

The Common App opens in 8 days and I’ve already begun the countdown to my doom. As it turns out, in 8 days I will also be 4 days away from the bane of my life, aka college finals. Who knew that finals could be worth SO MUCH of your grade? I mean, doesn’t 45%…

Matcha Choux Turtles-4

Matcha Choux Turtles (with a video!)

March 27, 2017 | 7 comments

Ever since the tortoise and the rabbit, I’ve loved all slow moving creatures. In fact I like to think of myself as an oversized sloth, which makes for a way too easy excuse about why my calculus homework isn’t finished yet (to be real though, calculus takes legit takes forever) and my webassign only has…

Matcha Strawberry Coconut Cupcakes-4

Coconut Frosted Strawberry Matcha Cupcakes

So as many of you have noticed from my irregular absences, junior year (most important year yay!) seems to have gone down a very black, very deep, very rough hole. Classes that were supposed to be fun (yay!) have turned into review sessions of honors classes with Barron’s AP book by the side. Well prepared…

Flaky Custard Buns

November 18, 2016 | 6 comments

Debate is a death trap. Long hours researching random international/national affairs (yay/nay plan columbia!) and unabashedly amusing (and long) saturdays. Like can I please just go to sleep now? Please? no you gotta do more DEBATE!!. This basically just turns into slightly less fun weekdays, researching cross legged on my friend’s floor, listening to Milord…

Sesame Viennese Matcha Ice Cream Sandwiches {vegan}

September 14, 2016 | 5 comments

I have a serious case of junioritis, which is why I’ve been absent recently (that and the fact that Lightroom decided NOW was the time to ask for money, and let me tell you, NOW is not the right time at all). For those of you unacquainted with junioritis, it’s extremely serious so here’s the…

Steamed Buns-15

Mantou + Baozi {vegan}

July 26, 2016 | 21 comments

My mom has magic powers. One of my favorite memories of China were the many super sketchy (super super sketchy) street vendors who stood with red sticks of candy, freshly roasted burn your mouth sweet potatoes, and stinky tofu by busy streets and market centers during the day (but even more so during the night)….

Bubble Tea Affogato-5

Bubble Tea Affogato {gluten free}

May 8, 2016 | 21 comments

First, an apology. I’m sorry for giving you yet another dessert with bubbles and ruining a perfectly traditional Italian dessert. I say this like most other people apologizing, that is, without a twinge of regret. This bubble tea + ice cream mix turned out even more delicious than normal affogato and anything with bubbles and…

Red Bean + Black Sesame Madeleines-8

Black Sesame Madeleines + Red Bean Madeleines

February 7, 2016 | 4 comments

So it’s around this time of the year when the sky becomes grey with sadness, the grass dries yellow, and the geese flood the pond that homework, projects, and tests (but mostly projects) pile like a thick blanket, muffling all my dreams of going to bed before 12. Thus goes my sanity and my ability…

Nian Gao-10

Nian Gao -i.e. Sticky Cake, 年糕 {gluten free}

January 31, 2016 | 6 comments

Okay so sticky cake is only what I translate this as. It seems that whenever the chinese name foods cake, it’s not actually the stereotypical soft, fluffy, thickly frosted cakes that are so common in America. This particular cake is apologetically bouncy, squishy, and chewy. Nian gao is essentially a mix between mochi and a…

No Knead Hokkaido Milk Bread-6

No Knead Hokkaido Milk Bread

January 24, 2016 | 100 comments

There are days that I want to knead to my heart’s content -for the dough to form a thin windowpane that could substitute for glass. This weekend did not contain any of those days. It was more of a throw stuff into a bowl and hope something good comes out weekend. My family has always…
