Day 8: Share A Recipe

alrighty guys.

I know you are all just as lazy as me when it comes to making food. you don’t have to admit, I know it already. so, I have a great mug recipe for pizza that you can make in under 5 minutes! keep reading u.u



  • 4 tablespoons of flour
  • 1/8 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/16 tablespoons baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons milk (I used soymilk)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • marinara sauce
  • cheese (vegan or real)
  • Italian herbs


  1. Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mug.
  2. Add the milk and oil, then stir and get rid of any lumps.
  3. Spread a thick layer of marinara sauce on top of the batter.
  4. Sprinkle on cheese and your preferred spices.
  5. Microwave for 2 minutes or until the cheese starts to melt.

Warning: it’s super hot and I recommend letting it cool first before eating, otherwise you’ll end up with a burned mouth like me u.u


Food + Me = Bestie Goals

Hey guys,

I literally just finished doing my calisthenics aka torture. Why would I do such a thing to myself? It’s not even Christmas yet but I’ve kinda sorta maybe been eating a leetle too much. So, like a good girl, I did all my sit-ups, push-ups, planking, stretching, squats, lunges, and leg-lifts today. When I was done, I looked at my watch, expecting that I’d been working out for like 40 minutes but what did my faithful watch say? 15 MINUTES!!! like, seriously? It felt like eternity and I was already half-dead. And I seriously needed something to eat. Looking at food quotes on the Internet makes me feel lots better. Scroll down to see some of them!

^ so true ^
well, this is pretty much my whole life. is it yours?
Just imagine asking each other what we want to eat and then looking up burgers and fries online, tapping “save image food” and immediately having it appear in the photo album the fridge. Dream. Come. True.

So that is a wrap (see what I did there) and I think I need to pay my refrigerator a visit soooo I’m signing off~

Bubbling Hot Pot Night

December 23, 2014 but posted on December 26, 2014
Wow! Today we visited our second cousins in the very center of Taiwan, her Sun Moon Lake. They kindly took us out for a whole day of sightseeing! It was all very exciting, with so many new things to see (and eat). To finish the day off, our relatives drove us to a fancy hot pot restaurant. A hot pot consists of a pot of soup, with ingredients of your choice.

Night Market Adventure

“COME BUY MY HANDBAGS!” A lady’s shrill market voice sliced through the air.
Not to be outdone, another vender yelled, also in Chinese, “Come buy my clothes! You can even try them on!!!”
The night market in Taiwan is bustling and as packed as sardines in a can.
I stayed close to Mom as we moved forward at the pace of one inch per second. Bright lights dazzled my eyes as they clashed with equally shining colors. Chinese characters shouted silently for customers to buy.

“How about some food?” Mom joined the throng at a booth.
I sniffed the air. It all smelled strange to me. As an American-born Chinese with Taiwanese parents, I was unfamiliar with the culture of Taiwan. This visit of six weeks hopefully would help to immerse me into my parents’ homeland.

Mom appeared with a paper bowl of deep-fried mushrooms. Normally, we don’t eat such things, but hey — its Taiwan! I popped a tasty, crispy oyster mushroom into my mouth as we moved from booth to booth, store to store. While shopping, we also munched on goodies like green onion pancake, a salty, fluffy dough studded with green onions. There are so many incredibly cute things there. Plus, everything is way cheaper than it would be in America!!!! As the night progressed, I purchased a pair of jeans and some adorable slip-on shoes to bring back to the U.S. It was amazing how I then became tired after only thee hours. I guess the crowds and heavy air was getting to me. Wearily, we waved for a taxi. Then, a large one pulled over to the side, and I fell asleep in its backseat as we zoomed back to my grandparents’ house.
I’ll definitely go back to the night market — later.

Yummy in Your Tummy for Winter

    Mmmmmm.. don’t these pictures make you feel hungry? I love sweet things, from pies to brownies, but I especially enjoy the desserts that are VEGAN. And guess what? The scrumptious-looking cupcake above is vegan! Now, you should be drooling and begging me to tell you where I got this.

Well, I have to say first that I didn’t buy it. Nope, can’t find that particular cupcake in a store! We have an amazing friend/baker who specializes in sweets. Usually, she makes them just for us and some other close friends. But, lucky you! She has an online bakery where she sells her beautiful and yummy products. She bakes goodies that will make you want more! Tell me in the comments below if you want the website link. I promise you, you’ll love our baker/friend’s desserts! (at least we do!)
