Wok With Me Baby is Back…in Hanoi!

Guys, it’s been a while. A rather long while.   However, ever the optimist, I kept on paying my annual website hosting fees and renewed my domain name for nearly two years after I posted my last post here. Since November 2013, when I last explained at length how to make sweet potato or pumpkin…

Making Lovely Lazy Bread for the Zombie Apocalypse

Y’all, I’ve been quiet here. Eerily quiet. And you’re probably thinking, where has she been and why has she been such a lazy broad in that puny Chinese kitchen of hers? Well. To begin with, a few things have changed since I last showed my floury face in these parts (see here and here and here for details)….

Pumpkin Spice Toaster Oven Scones and Wok Parathas

  Given that it’s already, oh, mid April and the skies are light and fluffy and sometimes blue, and temperatures have already soared into the high 20s and it’s definitely shirtsleeve weather, I fear that the title of this one is a terrible misnomer. It isn’t though. I’m just a terrible, terrible procrastinator. [ETA: I’ve…

Eating My Way Through Winter: Coconut Spice Bread

  This is going to be a new series, if I can get my act together.   At the moment my act is very obviously not together, but more about that later. I’ve decided that the best way to deal with an unwanted winter is to ignore it entirely, to stay in bed as much…

Stuffed Cabbage (Because it’s Cabbage Season)

The wind is just howling out there. Last night, I was kept up until the uncivilized hours by the noise of it just whipping around the building, slamming against the balcony that juts out, catching on the corner. Being on the 16th floor is loud. I had no idea before we moved here. I’d always…

Spicy, buttery rearranged cheese biscuits

Apparently I’ve been on hiatus.   I popped by here yesterday to update my plug-ins and noticed I hadn’t done anything in two whole months. You’d think I was starving to death or something. Which I was, for a while. After we came back from a gluttonous week in Hong Kong in early October, I…

Killing My Crock Pot Softly With Yeast Breads

  I’m not, I admit, one of those pretty food writers. I’m not talking about me and my bad hair and naked face and un-manicured nails, mind you- I’m talking about my food styling abilities, or lack thereof.   I’m also not good at pretending that things turned out okay.  Like that time I made…

Awesome Nanjing Klepto-Banana Bread (and Pudding)

I’m a bad food blogger. While I’ve been blathering away over yonder about mops and Chinese demolition sites, I’ve been neglecting to talk with y’all about food. Because I have been cooking, believe it or not. And baking. And blowing up the kitchen. Daily! I just didn’t have the time or energy to take the…

Made in Jiānádà: Suzhou Porky Mooncakes

Hello. I’ve been away for a while, haven’t I? It’s been a very hot,  busy summer, much of it nowhere near a kitchen to call my own. We were in Morocco for a month, which was lovely in spite of the fact that it was 46 degrees in the shade AND Ramadan for most of…
