I am sure everyone is busy this time of year. It has been a hectic week: school work, my tutoring job, and some sad news about my favorite Szechuan restaurant in Seattle. I found out the restaurant had a fire that was set by an arsonist when I went over to order some food to go last night.… MORE

People reading my blog may have been wondering if I am from an area in China where people eat a lot of spicy food. I am actually from Southern China where Dim Sum was originated and the food is usually light in taste. I am the only one in my family who likes spicy food, and I went to… MORE

The dish I made on Halloween weekend--Ma La Ji Ding. "Ma" means "numb", "La" means "spicy", "Ji Ding" means "Chicken cubes". Some of you may know that Szechuan food has a unique flavor which can make your tongue a bit numb after you eat the food. Some people are crazy about this sensation,… MORE

What is chicken powder? This is the most common question people would ask when they read my blog or recipes. It is actually a chicken broth but in powder form. Sometimes they even come in cubes. For me, they are a great substitution of MSG. As we all know that, Asian cooking especially in… MORE
