spring cooking

I sometimes get this phase when I am more enthusiastic about dinners and cooking in general. Last couple of weeks seem so. Sharing some pics of what I have been doing here...

Asparagus au gratin.
I've been into making this Béchamel sauce - so versatile -
once you know the basics, it's easy & always delicious.

Burnt Caramel Mocha Scones, not necessarily springy, but I had to paint.

Brussel sprouts with EVOO and garlic.

Aren't they beautiful?

Kimchee & avocado salad with fresh, homemade kimchee
from Park Korean Food at Green Flea Market in Upper West Side.
I drizzled some soy & toasted sesame oil.

And today was the Mother's Day. My 7-year-old made me a fancy brunch - French toast on a stick - and Randy got some crispy bacon. What more can I ask for?

My mother's home-cooked food nurtured us both physically & mentally - her dinners and lunch boxes are one of my favorite memories of childhood. I'm glad to see it being passed on to the next one in line!
