If something involves pork belly, I’m pretty much guaranteed to love it, and this tocino is no exception! It’s a Filipino cured pork dish, often eaten with sinangag (garlic fried rice) and a fried egg for breakfast. I chose to use pork belly, but other cuts of pork such as the butt or the ham


So many of us have creative dreams that we never quite pursue. Maybe you want to be an artist or a writer or a dancer or a musician or anything where you’re creating something… but you’re scared. What if you’re no good? What if nobody likes it? What if you just can’t do it? I’ve

Tiger Stripe Sushi

I love the practice of referring to stretch marks as tiger stripes. It just sounds so fierce. I haven’t been pregnant yet – I have no children, but I do have stretch marks on my legs from when I hit puberty and my hips just blossomed like crazy. So I’ve got these stretch marks on

Kiwi muffins

Every single time for the past 15 years that we’ve gone home to my in-laws house, they always have to send home fruit. Sometimes it’s apples. Sometimes it’s oranges or tangerines or homegrown dragonfruit, but every once in a while, we’ll get some kiwi. And my husband will always say don’t you worry – I

Do you ever have something that just sticks in your mind, and you can’t stop thinking about it? I bookmarked this recipe for philly cheesesteak sloppy joes from the Dinner Then

Black and white triangle kazari makizushi

Growing up, I didn’t really wear makeup except for the occasional dance show or Halloween. But the older I’ve gotten, the more makeup kind of feels like a shield against the world. Oh, well, I have to wear it because I’m going to look washed out if I’m filming and I’m not wearing makeup. Oh,

Broccoli Cheddar Soup

As the weather gets colder, I’m really getting in the mood for soups. Any kind of soups. One soup that I’ve never actually made at home until now, but has always been really good when I’ve tried it, is broccoli cheddar soup. BUT I’m lactose-intolerant, so I can’t really go for the kind of soups
