Highlights of my week: 11/15-11/21

It’s amazing how much can happen in one week! This week I started a new job, I met more new people, I saw/experienced new things… Here are some highlights. View from the new job/office in Beverly Hills. Rest assured it’s just the neighborhood I happen to work in this time, it doesn’t make me snobby or whatever stereotype it has attached with it 🙂

I finally went! OIJI- korean restaurant in the East Village, NYC

Feast your eyes on General Tso

Surely you’ve heard of General Tso’s Chicken… In fact you’ve probably ordered it before. The fried boneless chicken in a sweet and spicy sauce, found in Chinese restaurants across the United States…  I’ll admit it was one of my favorites growing up. mmm I have since moved onto more authentic Chinese dishes: dan dan noodles, xiao long bao, char siu bao…ever since I found out that…

Dinner in the kitchen of my dreams

If it wasn’t already obvious, I love to learn and share; this is no different when it comes to food. Not too long ago, I blogged about how Urban Girl Squad announced a Sage Pesto cooking contest where we were given a Sage Pesto recipe to serve with a dish of our choice. Well, I won that contest (read/see my winning dish here) and my prize…

This morning I spent hours making a homemade Korean meal for my roommate for her birthday.
