• 3 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse Squares

    As my first semester of online classes ends, I can ffiiinnnalllyyy start chipping away at the list of blog posts I had all intentions of posting months ago! Now that there aren’t any essays due to leave me drained and with writer’s block, here’s something chocolatey, fudgy, and rich to kick off the content on a sweet note!

  • Tokyo Food Tour

It has taken quite some time since my trip (Oct. – Dec. ’17) to compile what I ate and experienced (although @the_cutiefoodie did not exist yet, so please excuse my sub-par foodie pics). In my defense, at least you know that if these places have stuck in my head this long, they’re worth a try!

Through my foodie lens, I’ve documented my Tokyo travels…
