late to the game. [jalapeño poppers w. sausage & parmesan]

February 6th, 2013 by | comments


I’m a little late, but I hope everyone’s Super Bowl Sunday was a blast (aside from the 49ers losing). My roommate and I had a bunch of friends over to  watch the game, eat mass amounts of food and drink an exorbitant amount of beer. We had a variety of appetizers ranging from these stuffed jalapenos to a crock-pot sausage and cheese dip to mini weenies in Jack Daniels sauce to homemade chicken tenders to a kale cheese dip. Since a couple of my friends are vegetarians, I made half of the jalapenos with sausage, and half with just the cheese mixture–both were equally delicious!

let’s get festive. [roasted red pepper, artichoke & cream cheese dip]

I’m back…and extremely behind on blogging! I was in D.C. all last week for the National Christmas Tree Lighting for work; so, needless to say, I didn’t have any time to cook.

Since Christmas is fast approaching, I’m catching up on cooking/posting holiday recipes. This delicious red pepper dip more often than not makes an appearance at our holiday parties. In fact, I’m bringing the appetizer to a secret Santa party tonight. It’s tasty, simple and festive–can’t get much better than that.

playing catch up. [crock-pot shredded chicken in poblano cream sauce]

I was in New York this past weekend for work, so needless to say, I’m behind on blogging. Even though the trip was quick, I was able to see a couple of friends and spend a few hours perusing the city. I absolutely love NY and didn’t want to leave, but it was nice to get home and back in the kitchen. But what does one cook when jet lagged and lazy? Well, obviously a crock-pot recipe. Or at least that’s what sounded easiest to me, and that it was!

Food Porn Daily featured my mushroom and ricotta cheese toasts today. Check it out here.

A much needed reunion with my friend, Liza. Check out her blog here!

perfect pair. [Blue Moon cupcakes w. orange cream cheese frosting]

March 23rd, 2012 by | comments


We’re celebrating my friend Ashley’s birthday tonight, so naturally, I wanted to bake cupcakes. When I saw this recipe for Blue Moon cupcakes on Spoon Fork Bacon, I knew exactly what I was going to bake. Seriously…how could anyone pass these up? I knew I couldn’t, considering Blue Moon is my favorite beer and cupcakes are my favorite dessert. Let’s just hope Ashley feels the same way. ;)

I also wanted to give this recipe a test run, as I’m planning on baking these cupcakes for the LA Food Blogger Bake Sale. If you’re in the Los Angeles area, I’d love you to join me, Geni at Sweet and Crumby, and your fellow LA food bloggers on Saturday, April 28th from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at BLD Restaurant (7450 Beverly Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90036) for the third annual LA Food Blogger Bake Sale to end childhood hunger.

If you want to help bake, please send an e-mail to chungahrhee@gmail.com. Hope to see you there!

celebration time. [almond-vanilla cupcakes w. whipped raspberry cream cheese frosting & raspberry cream filling]

June 16th, 2011 by | comments

Although I didn’t make these cupcakes for my birthday (which is today :)), I thought they’d be the perfect post for the occasion.

I brought these fluffy and moist almond-vanilla cupcakes into work the other day. We had a bunch of interviews scheduled at our office for one of our clients, so I wanted to have a sweet treat for the media (it was also our intern’s birthday). The cupcakes were an absolute hit.

One of the photographers told me that he had a brief relationship with the cupcake. Clearly he approved. :)

I still have a few in my fridge, so I’m sure I’ll indulge in one today to celebrate!

a little sugar, a lot of spice. [gingerbread cupcakes w. maple cinnamon cream cheese frosting]

December 21st, 2010 by | comments

Since I’m fully embracing the Christmas season, I wanted to experiment with the holiday’s most popular and traditional flavors. My mom purchased a variety of Christmas themed cupcake liners a month ago—a small gift that wouldn’t excite many people. But I, of course, was ecstatic over her purchase. I wanted to use some of these liners before Saturday, so I decided to bake some cupcakes for my friend, Dana’s, ugly Christmas-sweater party.

I baked gingerbread cupcakes and chose to pipe them with a cream cheese frosting. Although moist and delicious, the cupcakes did not have a strong gingerbread flavor. I decided to add cinnamon and imitation maple extract to the frosting to give the cupcakes a more prominent taste. The frosting turned out absolutely delectable and paired wonderfully with the cupcakes.
