Pocky CM featuring Oreskaband

This commercial combines two things that have been on my mind lately - Pocky and Oreskaband. So far no new flavors to add to my quest for the Pocky fix but I do plan on hitting Little Tokyo for New Years so I'll see what flavors I can pick up then.

Christmas Songs to end 2007

Okay I'm proud of it so I'm posting it everywhere. Here is our Christmas Playlist

1. Tahitian Vanilla
2. Strawberry (w/ flavor crystals)
3. Strawberry
4. Coconut

Pocky Quest - 2 flavors

In life I think it is important to have goals. Well one of my goals is to try every single Pocky there is. Yeah I know it won't save lives or anything, but I pick my goals and you pick yours. I've had a few before but starting today I will keep track. I'll let you know how it goes

So far
1. Tahitian Vanilla
2. Strawberry

Korean BBQ Project

Well in my quest to make some Korean BBQ I did purchase this table top Electric Grill at Marukai Market. I'm excited to try it out. I've been searching the internet for various recipes. I still plan on going to Korean BBQ restaurants from time to time but I just think it will be fun to also do something at home - and economical. I'm also going to try to make some Panchan but I'm not crazy I'm buying the Kimchi. Never had Soju before but may get one bottle just to try. It would most likely be a flavored one though since when we went to Manna I kept wanting to try their flavored Soju's but didn't. I'll let you know how it all turns out. I have the camera ready

Korean BBQ - in search of recipes

Korean BBQ is something that I crave from time to time. Fortunately there are many Korean BBQ places to try but it gets expensive. I would like to learn how to make some at home for those low fund days. Any recipes you want to share?

See's Candies

Every year around this time I get a craving for See's Candies. It is strange how something has been a part of your life that you assume people all across the states know of this company. They don't - but they should.

Sadly for 2-3 years I had a guy friend who would buy me the same box of expensive See's every year. At a young age, you are flattered. But as I've gotten older and wiser I realize that he never bothered to pay attention to the fact that I do not like nuts in my chocolate. I think as you get older and more in tune with the spirit of giving you realize that it doesn't take much to buy the hugest box - a small box of the ones I like would be so much more meaningful.

I've been having a tamale craving

Unfortunately I am finding if I try to order Tamales online, the shipment costs more than the product. I'm seriously thinking of learning how to make my own. Meanwhile, I'm on the hunt for some local tamales. I just hope I'm not too late since this is the season for tamale making & eating

Looking for good places to buy tamales

After the tamale festival I realize I still have a taste for some. Anyone know of some good tamales in the Los Angeles area?

LA Tamale Festival

We went to the Tamale Festival Yesterday. It was the 3rd annual but my first time. I love food festivals and trying new things. Had a great torta and some pretty good tamales. I should have known to stay away from the 3 for $5 tamales at the place where people were lining up for the tortas. I'll just leave it at that. Did try a pineapple tamale for the first time ever and would have another one. I see myself going back next year but this is one of those festivals that I would go for maybe an hour but I can't see spending a day there.

Because Less Money for Gas = More Money for Food

Sk Donuts

Growing up I've always enjoyed donuts. Winchells was my favorite and I always felt a loyalty to it. Yum Yum, Dunkin - they just could not compete. Even when Krispy Kreme made it to the Los Angeles scene they could not completely push out my Winchell's love. (I actually only like the original glazed at Krispy Kreme). Recently, some yelpers directed me to SK DONUTS and I have fallen in love again with "donuts". There are times I actually will crave SK Donuts. I did try to reignite the flame at Winchell's last month but all it did was make me want SK Donuts even more.

I see a lot of exercise tapes in my future

1. Tous Les Jours Bakery
2. Griddle Cafe
3. Mu Dung San
4. Ondal 2
5. LaBrea Bakery
6. King Taco

there are actually lots more but this will help with formulate a game plan.
