Flourless Chocolate Cake

April 08 , 2015 by Hong - in Food

One of my most favorite things in the world is chocolate cake. I came across this recipe about a year ago and have attempted it a few times. The first time I failed miserably as I didn’t use a spring form pan. This time it came out imperfectly perfect. I was saving my Belgian chocolates […]

Easter Cake

April 07 , 2015 by Hong - in Holiday, Weekend

Did you have a nice Easter celebration? Here are some photos from my weekend. We had a little celebration in our backyard, starting with firing up the grill and then an egg hunt for the wee ones. I baked this coconut cake and topped it off with the sweetest bunny. And of course my favorite […]

In honor of the 126th Birthday of the Eiffel Tower yesterday, I thought I would share some of my best places in Paris to view this beauty. The 2nd floor of the Louvre from the Richelieu wing. From the Dome of Sacre Coeur. Keep in mind it is a climb of 300 steps but absolutely […]

Hello and Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Did you try that macaron recipe? How did it turn out? I thought I would share some photos of Paris with you this week. I wasn’t quite sure how to organize the trip in writing so I think I’ll just highlight a few of my favorite sights. […]

I’m taking a little break from Europe and treating you all to this beautifully delicious recipe to start your weekend. One of my splurge souvenirs while in France was a Laduree cookbook. This book is absolutely breathtaking, which inspired me to get into the kitchen…you can thank me later! Remember when I made these? You […]

Eating and Seeing in Bruges

When I’m visiting a foreign country I love discovering the local eateries. If you haven’t already guessed, my life revolves around eating and photographing. I was quite surprised to experience such great food while we were in Bruges. Our first dinner was at this great Argentinian restaurant just near the town square. My sister in […]

Did you know that the historic city center of Bruges is a UNESCO World Heritage Site? One can understand why after exploring just a small part of the city square. This is where we focused most of our attention for two days. I arrived at the train station early in the afternoon and was able […]

Bruges, Belgium

March 21 , 2015 by Hong - in Places

Bruges, Belgium can best described as a backdrop for a fairytale. With it’s medieval charm, cobblestones streets, picturesque canals, and historical architecture, I was in love….here’s proof of why. This is just one of many canals that had me swooning. You can’t help but to feel like you’ve traveled back several hundred years. This gorgeous […]

I’ve been on this ginger kick lately and recently I stumbled across this recipe that makes for a perfect marriage. This traditional pear upside down cake gets a little makeover with some added candied ginger.  Speaking of candied ginger, have you ever made your own? It’s super easy and makes such a great gift! Yeah, […]

Spring Forward

I’m so excited that Daylight Savings will begin this weekend! Although the loss of an extra hour is significant, the extra light is so worth it. Here in Seattle, if feels like Spring has been long underway. A few lovely blooms from around my neighborhood. The loss of an extra hour means I’m an hour […]
