Hi.

Welcome to my site. Here you will find exciting mashups of my very own recipes for the everyday home cook. I draw influences from my days working as an Executive Chef at my own Chinese restaurant in Downtown San Francisco, as well as inspiration from various cuisines I experience from all my travels. 

ENJOY!

Happy Friday Ya'll!! Not sure where this Southern Twang came from, BUT this morning I'm feeling good because the week is finally coming to an end. This week has been INCREDIBLY long with the AGU Conference in town. Fang Restaurant was slammed like crazy and I feel like I haven't eaten a real meal or taken a sigh since Monday started. Needless to say, I'm freaken stoked that it's Friday and what makes it even better is I'm treating myself this morning to some coffee and doughnuts. Which leads me into my post for the day. Coffee and Doughnuts Make the World Go Round:)

For those of you who know me, I'm a creature of habit. My daily routine is simple. 

1. Wakeup and Workout

2. A cup of Americano with Almond Foam Dry, from Peet's Coffee.

3. Go to work from 11am-10pm

Wait what? Did a chef that lives in San Francisco (One of the Snobbiest Coffee City) just say she gets her usual cup of joe from Peet's?!? And not from some fancy coffee shop?!? Say it ain't so.

The Answer is YES! I unlike some people, don't have the time or luxury to walk or Uber to get fancy coffee. I need my morning pick me up STAT which means no more than 2 blocks of walking. After my workout it takes me 30 seconds to pick up my coffee from baristas I've known at Peet's for years now. I'm greeted there like family since I go in there EVERY SINGLE DAY and occasionally get a free doughnut or two from one of their employees (Ratani) who gets them fresh in the morning from his dad. I'm sorry but does your fancy barista bring you freshly baked free doughnuts every few weeks with your coffee? Probably not. Beyond me getting my energy jolt to fuel my grueling day of work, I now have a smile on my face because I get a nice thoughtful treat. There are good people in this world:)

Well actually the smile is because I'm biting into one of the fluffiest doughnuts with a slight aroma of yeast and washing it down with coffee. There's just this amazing chemistry there between coffee and doughnuts. And let's take a lesson from Homer Simpson here, a wise man when it comes to Doughnuts right?! lol

"Doughnuts can make even the worst day go faster" -Homer Simpson

And so, my day just got a little better and this grueling week is close to being over. Thanks to Ritani for making my world go round faster today. If only we could have doughnuts be dropped down from the sky by drones to brighten everyone's day around the world, we would have a slightly happier place on earth, at least for a few moments.
