How to make tian dou hua (甜豆花), sweet tofu custard with ginger syrup


Out of all the recipes I've tried since moving to Norway in attempts to recreate dishes I've missed from home, this recipe for one of my favorite desserts, tian dou hua, is the easiest and most "omggggg this actually tastes like the thing I want it to taste like" dish. You can make it too using Cathy Erway's recipe from her Taiwanese recipe book, The Food of Taiwan.

Merry Christmas! Here's how to refer to the days of Christmas in Norwegian


Just last week I learned how to refer to the major days of Christmas in Norwegian. Cool! Maybe I should've learned that two Christmases ago when I moved here, but whatever!! Every day is another opportunity to limblessly flop my way up the stairwell of Norwegian competency!!!

Learning Mandarin at the MTC in Taipei, part 1: answers to a bunch of random questions you may or may not have


Got questions about what it's like learning Mandarin at the Mandarin Training Institute in Taipei? I've got answers, maybe! Here's a bunch of info I cobbled together from my nine months at the MTC.

Learning Mandarin at the MTC in Taipei, part 2: teaching and testing methods, plus an overview of my teachers


Here's more info about my time at the MTC, focusing on the school's teaching and testing methods.

RIP Cup & Saucer (but if you're in NYC you still have a few days to get there before it closes)


Cup & Saucer, an old-school diner that has been a fixture of Chinatown and the Lower East Side for decades, will be closing next Monday, July 17. I can't visit it before it closes, so I'll just wail about it on the internet (with the aid of excessive photos).

I redesigned my blog! It's now mildly newer and improved-er (maybe)


Behold, the redesign that no one asked for!

Looking for podcast recommendations? Here are 16 of my favorites from this month


When I'm alone in my kitchen, I listen to an endless stream of podcasts in order to drown out the sound of my culinary ineptitude. Here are some of my favorites, covering topics such as sound design, US history, the economics of buying oil, what Richard Simmons may or may not be doing, and more.

The Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival, celebrating Chinese New Year in the valley of the BURNING SKYYYY


Every year, a gajillion people head to this festival in New Taipei City to witness arresting displays of flame-powered lanterns being released en masse into the night sky. Here's how to get in on the lantern-loving mob and what to expect once you're there.

Shou Tian Pin (手天品), home of my favorite pineapple cakes in Taipei


I have an irrationally strong affinity for the pineapple cakes from this unassuming bakery near National Taiwan Normal University. Here's why.

I ate too much soft serve in Taiwan, and you can too!


I ate about one soft serve a week. This is definitely a reasonable amount of soft serve to eat in Taiwan. Yes.

Thank you for nominating me in Saveur's 2016 Blog Awards!


You nominated me for a Saveur Blog Award and they took you seriously. AAAHHHHHHHHHHHH

This Taiwanese food-themed deck of playing cards is my favorite souvenir from Taiwan (plus here's a map and list of the foods in the deck)


If you don't know anything about Taiwanese food, the deck is a nice intro to some of Taiwan's most popular foods with the added bonus of being a deck of cards (or it's a deck of cards that happens to be covered in photos of food—either way, it's awesome).

Over 50 places I'd want to eat, shop, and visit while on vacation in Taipei


In case you don't know what to eat or do in Taipei, here are too many suggestions.

My 12 favorite places to eat in Shida Night Market (plus 12 honorable mentions)


Pork bun sandwiches, butter-filled pineapple buns, fried chicken nubs, customized noodle bowls, overloaded dessert crepes, and more. This night market was basically my backyard for 10 months. And thus I know what heaven is.

Houtong Cat Village: Of course Taiwan has a village full of cats
