Golden Fried Rice with Salmon and Furikake

If the above video doesn’t load for you, click here to see it on TikTok! When I was a kid, I was part of a Girl Scout Troop. Every year, we’d go to a winter camp, where we’d go up to the snow and stay in cabins. There was this big lodge where we would

Banana chocolate-chip muffins

If the above video doesn’t load for you, click here to see it on TikTok! When I bought bananas for the kiwi muffins, I ended up with a bunch leftover. We didn’t get around to eating them before they started to overripen, which means OH DARN guess I have to make something with them. I


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.

Mickey Mouse Kazari Sushi

I am not really a morning person, but I’ve always had this positive association with getting up early and getting to see the sunrise – it always makes me really happy. And I think this comes from my childhood, where as a family… we weren’t really early risers if we could help it, but about

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
