Seafood, Chicken, and Chorizo Paella


I tried paella at the Catal Restaurant in Anaheim several years back. It was a flavorful blend of rice, meat, vegetable, and seafood, all in one dish.

Always use avocado that gives slightly when pressed. Those are just riped enough to be mashed and yet not too mushy. The best way to enjoy guac is to Read More

Chipotle Chicken Bowl

Pan Seared Salmon with Cucumber Slaw


I was hooked on the Sesame Salmon bites from Three Restaurant and Bar after the first visit. Those salmon bites are crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. They are so good that I hardly ever try any other items on their menu. This is my attempt to recreate the dish at home so that I Read More

Yu Sheng for Year of Pooch


It’s the Year of the Pooch! Before Nike came into our lives, I could not imagine living with a dog. I am a convert now. Just seeing him wag his tail, snuggling up by my side when I work, and imploring with his soulful eyes to play brings so much joy and affection into our family. What did I miss Read More
