My Experience with Cooking Soft Shell Crabs

If you love seafood, especially shellfish, like crustaceans, you might have consumed soft shell crabs—or, at least, hope to. Maybe you enjoy them, or you dislike them. I personally love them. However, they’re only available from mid-spring to early fall. So, when I can get them, I do it as much as possible. My firstContinue reading “My Experience with Cooking Soft Shell Crabs”

Brown Rice-Flour Gnocchi – An Unexpected Failure

As of April 28th of this year (2022), I have given up many food ingredients due to having terrible anxiety since March of this year.

Restaurants That Permanently Closed in My Area and Which I Miss

As much as we wish, pretty much no public place stays forever, including restaurants. Even fast food restaurant locations can close. While those, like McDonald’s, will likely last for a long time, or not, for the rest of humanity, unfortunately, many won’t. You could blame the covid-19 pandemic for some of these restaurant closures. BelowContinue reading “Restaurants That Permanently Closed in My Area and Which I Miss”

I Will Never Take Pizza For Granted Again

I have cooked pizza in recent years, despite my tomato allergy. You can see that post about my pizza with pepper sauce here.  However, before I developed my tomato allergy right after graduating from college in 2017, I often found pizza just okay. I wasn’t passionate about eating it.  Oftentimes, I ate it because itContinue reading “I Will Never Take Pizza For Granted Again”

The Best Asian Cuisines I have Made

You know, you don’t have to only rely on restaurants for Asian food, whether it would be Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Korean, Vietnamese, and so on. Some people might, though, and that’s okay. However, some folks like to cook their own Asian cuisines. I’m a little bit of both, but more toward the commercially-made food. ButContinue reading “The Best Asian Cuisines I have Made”
