Mama Chang is Back!

Oh man this week has been such a treat~ my mama is back in LA and we have been lucky to get her home cookin each night.  I miss her food so much.  When I was pregnant all I wanted was her veggie stir fry’s, soups and kimchi.   

She came to visit for c’s bday and we seriously feasted 24/7.  Here’s a pic from one of our dinners.  :) 

Anti-hangover drink: Asian Pear Juice


Holy crap why did I not kno about this before???  This drink is a little miracle worker in a can.  I chugged this after a night of drinking and woke up hangover free~~~ I didn’t feel fresh as a flower the next morning but I also wasn’t puking with a crazy headache either.  So huge plus!   Next time I think I will try to drink this before a night of drinking and then again right after.  :).  For double the protection.  Hehe

Blood Orange white wine cocktail

  I saw blood oranges at Trader Joe’s and just HAD to make a cocktail with them!  I had a bottle of Savignon Blanc leftover from a dinner and decided to use that as my base for this cocktail. =)  This was such a wonderful and refreshing mid-week drink!

Here is my recipe:

1 (750ml) bottle of white wine (I used Savignon Blanc)

3 Blood Oranges Squeezed/muddled

1/4 cup of Brandy

2 cups of 7- Up (or any lemon lime soda)

(and i wished i had some mint to muddle with the blood oranges or add as a garnish)
