Oh dear, where has summer gone? It’s almost Fall here in Minnesota and you can definitely feel the weather changing. No Fall recipes yet, I’m still trying to savor the last golden days of summer by cooking and eating as much bbqs and seafood as possible. Like this Cambodian curry mussels. Read more
Summer is here! I survived another winter in MN (6 years and counting). I can tell you this much….nothing, NOTHING, beats a Minnesota’s summer. The weather for the most part is almost always perfect, theres 10,000 lakes to visit, and I grill almost every night, if not week, for dinner. I wanted to share with you my easy go to recipe for grilled shrimp/prawns with a side of spicy sour green mango salad, it’s a recipe you can use all summer long! Read more
Spring has finally arrive in the Twin Cities. Some celebrate spring by cooking with the usual spring arrivals such as asparagus, carrots, leeks, etc. I celebrate spring by eating baby green sour mangoes with a special fruit dip! As my bff would tell me, “Savy, you’re so Asian!”. HA!

The dog days of summer are upon us. I can’t tell you how many tubs/boxes of ice cream the bf and I have gone through. While this is an awesome way to beat the heat, we felt bad that we couldn’t share our ice cream with our furbaby Dobby. Dogs need a way to cool down too! Sure I made him those frozen patriotic treat for July 4th, but I wanted to share some ice cream with him too. I know, spoiled pup. Read more
A few weeks ago we went to the Minneapolis’ Farmers Market. We picked up some yummy goodies there. We even found some home baked dog treats for our dog Dobby. Dobby loved the cookies,but $7 a bag for just a few cookies was too steep. I was not going to buy him another bag. C’mon his mom is a food blogger…I got this. That’s how I came up with these soft chewy pumpkin carob chips cookies for him.
Happy Earth Day everyone! I hope everyone is doing their part for the earth. I know in the past year I have become a recycle maniac! I even make the bf dig out trash that can be recyclable haha! To reward his/our good effort I decided to make macarons inspired by our beautiful planet! Yup, they taste as good as they look. Read more
Today is very special to me…it’s Dobby’s first birthday. Dobby by the way is my dog. Last year, my bf and I were talking about how we needed a new addition to the family. We were thinking about fur babies instead of just babies. In came Dobby. He made our life complete.
Today we celebrate Dobby’s birthday with a homemade ‘pupcake’. I’ve made treats for him before in the past, in which I will share in future posts, but I wanted his birthday cake to be extra special. It’s really easy to make and yummy…according to Dobby’s clean plate. People might think I’m crazy to go all out for my dog, but he is a member of our family and I know he loves us dearly. What’s the craziest thing you have ever done for your dog?
