Easy Thai Chicken with Coconut Peanut Sauce

Slightly crispy chicken over a bed of garlicky sautéed spinach served with a side of deliciously creamy coconut peanut sauce. This simplified version of the classic Pra Ram Thai dish is great as an entrée with rice.I don’t go out for Thai food that often anymore, but when I do, I think it’s safe to say that anything that comes with peanut sauce is bound to be a favorite....more

Savory Asian-Inspired Oatmeal

Oatmeal.  Love it or hate it there's no denying oatmeal is here to stay as being a staple health food.  For a long time I struggled figuring out a yummy way to prepare and eat it.  However, my sweet tooth always gave in and I would bombard it with brown sugar, butter, and more. Success for my sweet tooth! Epic fail in the health realm.  Enter my trip to Vegas a few weeks ago to visit my best friend Aiko.  She introduced me to a way to eat oatmeal I had never even thought of and has completely transformed my mornings!...more

That Awful Time I Found Out I'm a Woman and Asian

By age six, the world's mysteries open up and offer this pearl.I'm a girl.Sometimes I wear a dress that floats above my knees and lifts when a gust blows in.  Or at times I play with dolls.  Or god forbid, mommy combs my hair vigorously, then tightens two clumps of hair on either side of my head to create pigtails.  And the ribbons, she never forgets those.  I'm told to never talk to strange people.  It's unclear how that word translates into the crosswalk patrol near my elementary school, or my first grade teacher who smells of stale cheese and wears coke bottle glasses. I chalk up "strange" to mean people with goitres, maybe some other unspeakable deformity that will terrify me....more
