The popular sweet and savory Chinese orange chicken sauce is mixed with noodles to make an addicting orange chicken pasta.

You know how sometimes you fall in love with a sauce so much that you want to use it on everything? Dip stuff in it, spread it toast, eat it by the spoonful. So I was eating orange chicken the other day and thought, why not use it as a pasta sauce?

CREAM (“cookies rule everything around me”), an ice cream sandwich chain from the Bay Area, recently opened a location in San Diego.

It’s located right next to Bruxie, in the SDSU area.

The focus of the shop is its handcrafted ice cream sandwiches. For $2.99, you can choose two cookie flavors and an ice cream flavor. You can also add toppings for an additional charge.

This simple roasted asparagus dish is a delicious way to enjoy asparagus and makes an easy side dish.

Asparagus is one of my least favorite vegetables. I usually love my greens. I was never that kid that had to be forced to eat vegetables. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always enjoyed broccoli, beans, spinach, etc. But asparagus was the one exception. My mom used to say “You should be eating asparagus. They’re the king of the vegetables!” And so I’d force myself to eat a few pieces but it was always like medicine.

I saw these thin asparagus at the market and I couldn’t resist buying a bundle. I was determined to cook them in a way to make it tasty. And here it is.
