The bakery offers various cakes, coffee and cookie ice cream sandwiches. For just $2.95, you choose 2 cookie flavors and an ice cream flavor. I chose snickerdoodle and chocolate […]

Gala Chicken

Gala Chicken

Gala Chicken   Every time I shop at Zion Market, I notice the Gala Chicken booth in the middle of the store. Gala Chicken offers twice-fried Korean style chicken. If you were out shopping this weekend, you probably noticed that just about every place was crowded and full of lines. We decided to take a […]

San Diego Night Market

San Diego Night Market

San Diego Night Market This past Saturday, San Diego had its own very first night market. Night markets are really popular in Taiwan and other parts of Asia. It’s always been one of my favorite things to do when I visit family in Taiwan. LA started doing them this summer and they were a huge […]

Thanksgiving Wrap-Up

Thanksgiving Wrap-Up

Thanksgiving Wrap-Up   I hope everyone had a safe and delicious Thanksgiving. This year, Mr. K and I spent Thanksgiving Day with his side of the extended family, which meant quite a layout of food.

McDonald’s Mighty Wings

McDonald’s Mighty Wings

McDonald’s Mighty Wings For the football season, McDonald’s released a limited time menu item: Mighty Wings. The wings are deep fried and spicy, just the way I like my wings. Even though I had my doubts, I couldn’t resist heading over to my nearest McDonald’s to try them out. A 10-piece was priced at $8.99, […]

Top Meals of 2013

Top Meals of 2013

Top Meals of 2013 It was hard to come up with my favorite meals of 2013. The previous year (2012) was such an indulgent year with the honeymoon in Europe, a reservation at French Laundry and more. I knew at the end of 2012 that there was no way 2013 would even come close. We […]

Cronuts from Vons

Cronuts from Vons

Cronuts from Vons I’m a little embarrassed to admit this, but I tried Vons’ version of Cronuts last month, which are labeled “donut croissant.” I kept seeing them when I was shopping and curiosity got the better of me. The cronut copycats are not in the fresh donut section, but rather in the other bakery […]

Lil’ Orbits

Lil’ Orbits

Lil’ Orbits Mr. K and I recently went to check out Lil’ Orbits, a small donut shop that makes mini made-to-order doughnuts. Lil Orbits is actually the name of a brand of portable mini doughnut machines which can be used for food vendors, though here it is an actual storefront. A dozen small donuts are […]
