Cooking 101: #13 – Mix Mix Noodles

The Take-WHATEVER-You-Got-In-The-Fridge Noodles… About 11pm at night felt super hungry (note to self: this is extremely unhealthy!) so what better late-night snack than noodles? But since it was near the weekend, my fridge was running low on …everything! I didn’t even have instant noodles, so I just used Angel Hair Pasta and topped it with … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #12 – Sweet N’ Sour Chicken Wings

I LOVE SWEET N’ SOUR… So since I bought 3lbs of Wings at T&T, I still had a lot of wings this weekend to try out other sauces. I saw a lot of recipes for Sweet N’ Sour Chicken, so I wanted to use the sauce on Wings too! It might seem like the generic … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #11 – Ginger-Garlic Chicken WIngs

Missing My Mom’s Soy Sauce Chicken… I bought like 3lbs of wings from T&T, planning on a WING-WEEKEND:)! Wings are probably the one thing that you can eat everywhere in Ottawa, but the ones that I wanted are a harder to find. I love Honey Garlic Wings, but still can’t compare to those Asian- Style … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #10 – Mushroom Omelette

Napoleon Cake-like Omelette, Why not?… So I was watching YouTube and I wanted to try this plating design, but I think it matches a plate of dessert more. INGREDIENTS: – 2 Large Eggs – 1 Small Can of Mushrooms – 1/2 White Onion (I sliced most of it and diced a bit for topping) – … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #8 – Omurice (Japanese Omelette Rice)

The Wonders of YouTube… I usually follow RunnyRunny999 on Youtube, cause I think he’s pretty funny and he cooks dishes that I’d want to eat! Plus, he’s not some professional chef, so hopefully if he can cook it I can too! I saw his video for making Omurice, which I could probably eat non-stop if I … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #6 – Creamy Tomato Macaroni

Quick Fix For Lunch… So Sunday night is usually when I think about what I’ll make for lunch for the week. I usually try to think of something really easy to eat with a fork or spoon (cause you really don’t wanna look like a slob at work). I had some heavy cream left over from … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #5 – Olive Oil Pasta

Dramas Influence Me a Lil’ Too Much… I was actually watching this Korean Drama called “Pasta” and the girl in the drama is trying to be a chef. The dish that she tries to cook over and over again is “Olive Oil Pasta”; it seems quite simple and plain. But after all, the most generic … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #3 – Gluten-Free Pancakes

A Healthier Start to Your Day… I’ve been trying to make Macarons over and over and OVER again, so after I finally got it right (“APPLAUSE”) I realized I still had a half bag of Almond Flour left. I think I was watching Gossip Girl and they were having breakfast, which really made me want … Continue reading

Cooking 101 : #1 – Scallop Buckwheat Pasta

The Beginning of my Cooking Excursions… Moving to Ottawa for a year has begun in quite a challenge. I’ve lived alone in Vancouver, but cooking was never necessary. Let’s be honest, if you’re hungry in Vancouver there is always food at any hour! Unfortunately, Ottawa definitely does not accommodate my lack of cooking skills. So, … Continue reading
