Nostalgic recipes from my family that strike the perfect balance of comfort, calories, and nostalgia.
Dad’s Scallion Pancakes
An all time classic for any Taiwanese family, these flaky crispy layered pancakes are my obsession. My dad used to make these for me all time the time and they go right from the frying pan into my mouth.
Steamed Pork Buns
This steamy, juicy pork bun represents my heritage, my midwest nostalgia in kitchen at grandma's as a kid, and the reason why I love eating and cooking.
Sesame Scallion Bread 大餅
This flatbread is like the softer, fluffier and just as delicious cousin of scallion pancakes. You guys on the internets have been making SO much bread, and carbs are my weakness so it inspired me to call my grandma over FaceTime and finally try to make this recipe.
Grandma’s Sticky Rice
For all my sticky rice lovers out there, An ode to my grandma's sticky rice comfort food stape with shittake mushrooms, and marinated chicken thigh.
Taiwanese Breakfast Crepes 蛋餅
A Taiwanese street food staple and a grandma classic. This savory, chewy, crepe-like addictive goodness literally is so easy to make in the morning.
Mom’s Tomato Parsnip Broth with Egg Noodles
A super simple bowl of my two favorite things in the winter, chewy egg noodles and a nice warm comforting bowl of light broth made with bone broth, tomatoes, parsnips, and onions.
Vegetable Steamed Bao and Dumplings
Classic vegetable filling made with bok choy, shiitake mushrooms, tofu, and scallions. A nostalgic flavor combo that reminds me of dim sum houses and grandma's on Sunday.
