Make This Easy 5-Ingredient Spicy Korean Rice Cake Snack!

Meet spicy Korean rice cakes I would walk nearly a kilometre during the winter in -20 weather for a taste of these freshly grilled Korean rice cake skewers at Yonge & Finch. It’d be a rough walk, but I knew it’d be worth it every time. One order for $1.50, and worth every…

Make Siu Mai in 30 Minutes

Homemade siu mai is my new fave snack. This is incredibly easy to make, it’s ridiculous. I often make it over my 1-hour lunches, for me, it only takes 20-25 minutes to make from start to finish! Here’s a video of how easy-peasy it is. Growing up in Sydney, I remember that this…

3 Ways To Peach!

Peach season is here! I enjoy eating peaches and nectarines in one of two ways, either as is, or dipped into a mix of chili & salt. Coming up with a way to use these peaches that required more than two steps was a bit of a pickle for me. Of course, I…

Air Fryer Corn Ribs (with Green Onion Oil!)

The taste and texture of these “corn ribs” will be my exact fuel to continue to buy corn from now on. I would never buy corn otherwise – before this, corn would only be good for one thing – on the BBQ with a slather of butter. But now I’ve evolved. Here’s a…

How To Make Arepas

Cheesy Baked Feta Pasta (Yes, the TikTok Trend)

I’m all for viral Tiktok food trends. They must be spreading like wildfire for a delicious reason, wouldn’t they? The tortilla Tiktok hack is easy to understand how delicious it is. I also reluctantly tried out “sour patch kid grapes”, which tasted just like the ingredients: halved green grapes and a slice of…

Vietnamese Tomato & Fish Soup with Pickled Mustard Greens

This soup is a result of attempting to satisfy a nostalgic home-style Vietnamese soup that my dad would make growing up (minus the fish). For the protein, it’d instead be pork spare ribs, but I’m using frozen fish for this recipe. With every meal at home, we would have a soup, protein and…

Vegetable Chow Mein Noodles (No Wok Needed!)

The flavours in this chow mein recipe comes close to one of my favourites. The best chow mein I’ve tasted is from Sam’s Congee or that one Soy Bean place in Heritage Court (now a memory). The portion size from both restaurants are very small. And notice how at both places, they have…
