November 15 , 2012 by Hong - in Food

Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week? Wow. I can’t believe a full year has already gone by. I’m excited to be hosting our family Thanksgiving meal again. I’ve been researching recipes for the past few weeks and came across this recipe for Plum Apple Butter. Since we are no longer in plum season I […]

Autumn Air

The boys are now in their first full week of school and things are starting to get back to “normal.” I love this time of the year as we slowly merge blue skies with Autumn’s crisp air. During one of my walks this week, I noticed some of the leaves turning…. …and the lighting starting […]

It’s been about three weeks since the girls have started laying. They are finally on a regular cycle and we’ve been averaging at least three eggs a day, sometimes four if we’re lucky. Every time I lift open that nesting box it kind of feels like Christmas morning. I instantly smile…oh bliss! There’s something truly […]

Pho Goodness

Seattle’s weather has been a little schizophrenic lately. Today, I thought my house was going to flood. I actually woke up to a leak and a slight power outage. Since I’m an emotional eater, pho was a must for today. When it comes to customizing my bowl of pho, I’m quite a simple girl. Actually […]

Bouchon Bistro

My friend Victoria recently visited a restaurant that I’ve been coveting, Bouchon Bistro. She was kind enough to write about her experience for Seasons For Cake. Not only has Victoria been a great supporter of S4C, but she is one inspirational human being. She has joined me as a contributing editor and I am so […]

Egg Roll Goodness

February 09 , 2012 by Hong - in Favorites, Food

I have a special treat for you today! This is one of my favorite recipes to make as it brings me so many fond memories of my childhood. Egg rolls have been a part of our culinary culture as far as I can remember. It’s one of those food items that seem intimidating to make […]
