Hi! I'm Jamie and I'm here to share my love for food and travel with all others alike. I live by spontaneity and simplicity, enjoying each day of my openness to experience.

Green Tea Marble Cake

My mom enjoys purchasing over-priced baked goods from high-end grocery stores, but I’m often intransigent on this because homemade pastries are just as piquant, possibly even more, and the production cost is often less. I know I’m biased and I’m only saying this because of my baking obsession […]

Crab Rangoon Bombs
