It’s Wednesday, which means we’re already half way through the week!

I’m soo excited. Only one more week until vacation. This time, we’re headed to Denver. My cousin is graduating from Regis University so the rest of us decided that we’re making a vacation out of it. Because, why not?! AirBnB booked! But I’m having a little trouble coming up with things to do in Denver.

Honestly, most of the things I came up with is food related. No surprise though, right? On my list is Snooze for brunch, Root Down, Hammond’s Candies, maybe breweries, a hike? I need help! Please send me recommendations. I would love to know how to make the best of my four full days there.

In the meantime, this avocado toast with soft boiled egg <3

Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? I hope you had an uneventful and restful couple of days off. We had a citywide blackout most of Friday so I ended up leaving after just a few hours and starting my weekend early. Even better? I wasn’t scheduled to work Saturday, which means it was an extra long weekend for me. Yay!

But sometimes I feel, even with the extra time, weekends pass by so quickly. While the rest of week seems to go by ever so slowly. Do you feel the same way?

Anyways, I’ve been craving acai and pitaya lately . It’s been sooo long since I’ve had either. So today, I thought I’d share with you an acai pitaya smoothie bowl, a combination of two of my favorite tropical smoothie bowls. Why do I have to choose one or the other when I can have both? Right?

Earlier this week, I met my friend Emily in the Mission area of San Francisco for lunch. We had vegetarian Japanese food, and I absolutely loved it because it was so different. It’s all about the flavor and the texture.

Emily also gave me a box of macarons from Ketsourine Macarons. These macarons are so cute! They have Belle from Beauty and the Beast, unicorns, and Pokemon! And that candle? It’s Pinot Noir.

Um, have I mentioned that I might be addicted to bread?

Give me a warm loaf of bread fresh out of the oven and I can probably sit there and devour it all on my own. I don’t need cheese or butter or balsamic vinegar or olive oil. But, you know, it doesn’t hurt to add all those extras to bread, right?

I don’t know why it took me this long to share with you this deliciously cheesy garlic bread, but it’s about time. Because when it’s this easy and this delicious, you know it has to be shared.

Back in February, my friend Kim, from Sweet Kimplicity, and I went down to Southern California where we would board for our cruise trip to Ensenada.

I’m utterly obsessed with the vibrant color of this purple yam bun that my aunt made.

My aunt loves making baos (buns) and giving them away to family and friends. Most of the time, she uses yam or sweet potatoes. But every once in awhile, she uses purple yam in the dough and it turns into this pretty purple color.

Happy Monday!

I can’t believe it’s already another week! Did you have a good weekend? Ours was filled with both rain and sunshine. So it was a relatively quiet weekend. I’ve been trying to do some spring cleaning, reorganize my schedule, and create brand new recipes.

I did go out to the farmer’s market though and spotted blood oranges. I cannot believe I haven’t made anything with blood oranges this citrus season! So today, we have a spring time salad with blood oranges. Because I can’t let the citrus season pass without featuring blood oranges somewhere!

I seriously love latte art.

Even the simple ones like these hearts. Not to say that the lattes aren’t good, but it’s even better when there’s pretty art on top.

These are cookie butter latte and black sesame latte.

Lattes

I’m always on the lookout for new latte art cafes to try. So if you know any in San Francisco, I’d love a recommendation. =)
