Sous Chef Kenji, Me, and Chef Ming – the only thing missing is the watercress.

Watercress – the less looked-upon green – until now! Growing up in a Chinese household, watercress was always in our greens rotation.  Figuring prominently in hot pot meals, soup, and as a stir-fried veggie, I always loved this spicy, slightly bitter green.  So, I was super excited to attend last week’s watercress dinner hosted by Chef Ming Tsai and B&W Watercress Growers. Featuring a 6-course meal featuring watercress, I was curious to see how versatile the vegetable could be. And I was certainly not disappointed! See for yourself:

We started with watercress-artichoke dip served with whole wheat pita chips: Continue Reading

Living my best life in the sprinkle pool

I had the most amazing weekend in San Francisco – packed with friends, food, and of course – fun! I can’t wait to share more about my way-too-short trip with you, but I just *had* to share some photos from my visit to The Museum of Ice Cream.  I mean – this is my kind of museum, amirite?

October Howloween Barkbox!

Happy HOWLOWEEN, Noshers!! Today I’m happy to share our October BarkBox, which is, of course, Halloween themed!  I had previous written about our September Barkbox, a gift from Toby’s friend Buddy.  Buddy shared the love once again this month, but I told Toby that the subsequent boxes would have to go back to Buddy – we don’t want to make frenemies!  As mentioned with our first Barkbox, this super-cute monthly subscription box service surprises your furry friend with toys, treats and other goodies. As you can see, Toby was being a good boy sitting next to his box, but he really wanted to dig in! And could you blame him – look at what we received this month: Continue Reading

Apple Picking at Alldredge Orchards!

H-apple-y Monday, Noshers!  How was your weekend?  We had a pretty good one – we went apple picking!  It was one of the last weekends to pick apples (and we were forewarned that the apples left to pick were “challenging”) – for some reason, October really got away from me.  We really wanted to bring our pup Toby along, so we were happy to find Alldredge Orchards.

Two Paws Up for Barkbox!

Happy FriYAY, Noshers!! Today I’m happy to share our first experience with BarkBox – or rather, Toby’s first experience with BarkBox!  I realize I haven’t done a proper introduction of the newest member of the Nosh family – I’ll have to remedy that soon! In the meantime, Toby’s friend Buddy sent us a BarkBox as a welcome gift.  Isn’t that sweet? September’s theme was Bark to School, of course!  As you can see in the first photo, Toby was getting pretty impatient while waiting for me to take a photo – he wanted do dig right into the goodies. Can you blame him?

For the uninitiated, BarkBox is a monthly subscription box service for – you guessed it – your dog, featuring toys, treats, and goodies! I have a Korean beauty subscription box (Jini Beauty, which I’ve written about here on the blog), so why shouldn’t my dog have one as well? The Bark to School box definitely didn’t disappoint: Continue Reading
