Blog Redesign

Given how the content of this blog has shifted, I figured I might as well update its look too. Enjoy!

Rose Hot Chocolate

Unlike my spiced hot chocolate (recipe here), this is something I tried on a whim very recently and fell in love with. If you're not someone who loves the sight, smell, and/or taste of roses, then this might not be for you. Don't knock it till you try it though! As with my spiced hot chocolate, this is more of a set of guidelines than a recipe per se.

Broccoli Cheddar Soup

A slight twist on an oldie but a goodie. My recipe's below. It serves two comfortably, so if you're cooking for more than that I would double or triple the recipe. Enjoy!

Vegetable Rice with Sausage and Egg

I've been trying to economize these last couple of months - for economizing's sake, thank goodness - and a variation of what became this was suggested by a friend when I complained about being tired of fried everything. If you've lived in the PRC, you know how cheap the ingredients are! And you've probably also used them (in combination with various other things) in countless fried rice and fried noodle dinners. It's so nice to have an alternative - not a big change up, but enough to keep me
from getting tired of all the rice! (I know, I know, I'm far from enculturated. I recently had a new coworker begin our first conversation with, 'Do you like rice? I love rice. I only eat rice!' In the past I would have dismissed such a story as stereotyping, but I have yet to meet someone here who thought a proper meal was complete without rice...)
