Miss Baby Sunshine's Kitchen

I love to cook, eat, dream, and shop for food. Come and see what's cooking in my kitchen today.

Farm Fresh Eggs

Rachel at work gave me her Farm Fresh Eggs today!

farmeggsLook how lovely they are in different colors and sizes! I couldn’t pass this opportunity to make something immediately. I really wanted to taste the eggs so I kept it simple. Japanese dish called tamago don. Basically, it’s onions and eggs simmered in soy, mirin, sugar and dashi broth over rice in a bowl. The key for this dish is to NOT scramble or over cook the eggs.

Work Potluck

poachedchickenThis is one of my favorite ways to eat chicken breast. Poached chicken with scallion ginger sauce. I like to organize potluck at work time to time. So I brought these to work. Food always makes people happier…especially home cooked¬† meals.

Holiday Baking 2012

Last week, I invited few of my friends to come join me for my annual Gingerbread house making. It’s more like intensive baking/decorating session of 8 hours or so… but it’s a fun way to¬† bring Christmas spirits up.
