With flowers in the garden beginning to bloom, it is definitely starting to feel as if spring is just around the corner.

It was another busy weekend for me. Yesterday was Lunar New Year so I was with family celebrating and eating lots of food. But honestly, what’s new? Lol. We’re always finding reasons to celebrate. And well, to eat. Lol.
In the mean time, let’s talk about this chai spiced apple loaf cake.
Earlier this week, I finally got to go to Marufuku ramen.
I’ve heard so many good things about the ramen there, but the wait was so long. It’s almost always a 1.5-2 hour wait unless you get there early. But I highly recommend trying the ramen. The broth is so creamy and flavorful. Oh, and place yourself on the Yelp waitlist so you don’t have to wait there the whole time.
A delicious snack mix filled with chex cereal, pretzels, mochi bites, and almonds. This Sriracha furikake Chex mix is sweet and savory with just a hint of spicy, perfect for snacking.
It’s been a really long week even though it’s not quite over yet. And I am so in need of a midweek pick me up.

Just preparing for more rainy days ahead.
Last weekend, we decided to do a mini hike in the city after our French Quarter cooking class at Sur la Table. Even the skies were relatively clear, it was super cold and winter. But at least the views of the Golden Gate Bridge were clear.
Ramen tossed with baby spinach in a savory garlic ginger sesame sauce. This garlic sesame ramen is simple, delicious, and perfect for a quick light meal.
Let’s face it. There are days when we’re just not in the mood to cook.
Mochi muffins with crispy tops and edges filled with swirls of purple yam puree in every bite. These ube mochi muffins are delicious and so perfect for sharing.
I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend.
Last weekend, my sisters and I went to the newly opened Chase Center to watch a basketball game. The event center just opened for a few months ago so we were super excited to see it for the first time. Even though it was already January, the Christmas trees were still up with all the holiday decorations so it was super festive.
