"clay pot" salmon recipe

with all the excitement around here lately, hung and i have been slacking in the kitchen. it's not that we haven't been cooking, it's just that we haven't been cooking anything new or, well, presentable. i mean, ramen noodles with egg and spinach isn't exactly rocket science (but gosh does it taste good!). a rotisserie chicken sammich? come on, guys, you don't need instructions on that…. but now that things have calmed down a bit, we (hung) have been stepping things up. the last visitors…

DIY paneled door headboard for under $50

after a night spent flying home from a business trip, partying with e.tittlemouse and co. at the night of noir event for jc fridays, and snagging a "night cap" of sour cream blueberry ice cream and earl grey fudge ice cream at milk sugar love, who knew we could even be functional on saturday, let alone saturday MORNING. (see tomorrow's post for details from the night of noir event!!) here's the story. hung and i had been putting off getting a headboard for our bed for a long time. like 6…

porta jersey city

i've been waiting for this place to open for so long! those people know what they're doing when they start creating buzz about the place months ahead of time and block it off from the street, making it even MORE mysterious and enticing. carefully following porta's instagram feed, i saw a little comment stating the opening for last night... my instant reaction was "NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!" i had been waiting for it for so long, and they just "had" to open on a day that i had tickets for another…

brown butter truffle sage rice krispie treats

if you follow @beyondthetoop on instagram, you had to know this recipe post was coming ;) if you read the title thinking "ew gross" you'll be sticking your foot in your mouth after you try these. our friend made them once during a dinner party, and i (along with everyone else) went crazy over them! they are the perfect combination of sweet and savory, and take hardly any more effort to make than regular rice krispie treats with just butter and marshmallow. i made them for thanksgiving…

Brushed finish, silver with white gold plated his and her wedding bands with inlayed emeralds. Decorating Small Spaces, Emeralds, Wedding Bands, Rings For Men, Silver Rings, White Gold, Posts, Jewelry, Men Rings

the rings

ok ok ok, i know i said i wasn't going to share details of the wedding until i get photos back from cheyenne , but GUYS! i just can't help it! first of all, hung decided he wanted a really cool ring. nothing average from the jewelry store would do. only a unique, never-been-seen-before style would do for him. so we set our eyes on pinterest . after many nights spent pinning mixed metal rings, metal and wood rings, hammered metal rings, brushed finish rings... just when i thought i had…

A Night of Noir - JC Fridays with E. Tittlemouse and Co.

jersey city has seriously been stepping up its game. and right now, i'd have to say most of it has to do with the residents stepping up their game, coming out to support those small businesses that are popping up all over town right now, and the businesses stepping up either game by hosting community events. it's been a win-win for everyone. jc fridays has been a fantastic event in downtown jersey city for a while now, celebrating the works of local artists, getting the community out for a…

hey LA, new york city hates the rain too.

if you live in NYC (or the surrounding areas), you know how crappy it was this weekend. when it's raining and you have to walk everywhere, you order take-out, you cancel your plans to "go out", you make watch the entire first season of friends (because HELLO!! friends is now on netflix, finally!)… i guess it's not just LA gets depressed when it rains outside. hung and i may or may not do this when it's nice outside too, but this weekend a friend from college told me she was in town, which…

....and so the holidays have begun. our new-to-us car has already seen some miles, and there are more to be clocked, but as long as there are smiles and laughter and good food and good company, we can claim a successful holiday season. in light of my absence on this space, and likely more to come, here's a recap of the holidays for us so far. between thanksgiving, friendsgiving, a wedding, a friends chrismakuh, holiday parties, and birthdays, we've been busy. but we can only be thankful to…

let's start.

i'm sitting in my living room writing this, quiet with the only sound being the crackling of a wood wick candle, in my robe, feet propped up on our newly-reupholstered ottoman, my husband napping beside me, hot coffee at my fingertips, the sun shining in from all directions… and i wouldn't ask for anything more right now. 2014 brought us many good memories, shoving our engagement, the purchase of our first home, and our wedding all in the same year. we took the first phan family trip to dc…

French hors d'oeuvres cooking class with Bambino Chef and Lourdes of the Vine in Jersey City. Hors D'oeuvres, Jersey City, After Dark, Cooking Classes, Posts, French, Food, Messages, French People

chef after dark

"taking a cooking class with your husband." it sounds like a fun date night, right? while it was a blast to go to, it was hardly a date night. i guess the point of "date night" though, is to force ourselves out of the house and do something fun together. so last night "technically" still fit our requirements. it just happened to be with people we "know" (more on that later) and ended in a hangover the next morning. jersey city is a funny place. people are so welcoming and interested in…

my (his) best friend's (indian) wedding

although i quite enjoyed saying these words, i think i said "bedazzled" and "bedazzles" more times last weekend than the rest of my life combined. obviously i'm talking about an indian wedding! hung's best friend, to be exact. nope, he's not indian, but his wife is, and they had the most beautiful wedding (with lots of bedazzles) i was told that indian weddings are long, which i assumed in my head to mean boring. no so, my friend! when you're given food (GOOD food), you can smear turmeric on…

masquerade soiree with e.tittlemouse and co.

the idea of a masquerade party seemed so distant to me. my only two visions of it were scenes from breakfast at tiffany's and from gossip girl (who DOESN'T remember that episode where lil J gets smooched by nate for looking like serena?!). i was so excited to go to this party with e.tittlemouse, because it was going to be my first one! it's rare for us to show up to an event like this empty-handed, so we (ahem, hung) decided to make meatballs! nowadays we can't make hardly anything without…
