My friend invited us to her place for lunch to try her Shanghai Vegetable Rice 上海菜饭. I must be in serious need for inspiration and motivation!

Preparing a meal for one is quite a chore. Some of you may just settle with salad but that is really not my kind of meal.

We had delicious Korean food (Soondubu and seafood pancake) at Jang Su Jang in Santa Clara the other day and brought home the only food that was left - rice.

A big pot of chicken soup is "double- (Read more...)
