Pork and Asparagus with Hoisin Sauce
Okay guys, let’s be real here - it’s seriously impossible to shoot everything in natural lighting, right? Ever since I got my DSLR, everything has actually been shot in natural lighting but with a full-time 9-5 job, that just means that I have to stay cooped up in the house during the weekends and cook and blog all day. And as you could imagine, that gets pretty damn exhausting. Not only that, when go out with friends or go up to SF to see Jason during the weekends, I get into somewhat of a panic because losing out on a weekend means I just gave up doing at least 6 posts.
Pesto Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Roasted Asparagus
Pesto is seriously one of my favorite things ever. It is so easy to make, it’s incredibly versatile, and it pretty much tastes amazing in and on anything and everything.
Like for this pasta dish here, I tossed the pesto in some simple ingredients like sun dried tomatoes, roasted asparagus and mozzarella cubes, finishing it off with a fried egg, and it was seriously one of the best weeknight meals ever! It’s so simple and easy to whip up, and my most favorite thing about it is that some of the pesto gets stuck in the crevices of the shell pasta. AH-MAZING, right? Plus, this tastes just as good, if not better, as work leftovers since the mozzarella cubes gets all melted/ooey-gooey in between the pasta. Mmmmmm.
Poached Egg on Roasted Asparagus with Hollandaise
Homemade hollandaise sauce has been on my bucket list since forever, but since I didn’t have a blender other than the magic bullet, I was out of luck to give it a try. But I recently made an investment on a gorgeous looking blender so I immediately went searching for hollandaise sauce recipes.
