This is such a cheap post because it guarantees “awwws” and “oohs” and replays.
But then again, there’s nothing wrong with that.
How can Asian babies be so cute?
There’s no better way to beat the summer heat than indulge in some delicious cold meals. Audrey is going to share some fab recipes with you to make in the comfort of your own home!
I always turn to my favorite summer dish–the cold sesame peanut noodles — when I want to chill out when dining in.
Here, I share the recipe with you! We’re even making these recipe cards so you can easily transfer the recipe (picture and all!) to friends and family. Thoughtful, huh?
Nina Simond‘s Cold Sesame Peanut Noodle
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 tbsp. smooth peanut butter
1 1/2 tsp tomato paste
1 tsp sugar
1/3 cup water
1 tsp. safflower or corn oil
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp crushed red pepper
Mix the first 5 ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
Heat a small, heavy saucepan over high heat, add the oil and heat until hot (about 20 seconds). Then add the garlic and pepper and heat until fragrant (5 seconds or so). Then add the mixture and cook until warmed through, about 3-4 minutes.
What’s your favorite cold summer meal? Share with us in comments and we may just post about it!
Awesome news of the week: Kal Penn will be returning to Hollywood to play Cobie Smulder‘s love interest in How I Met Your Mother!
The Washington Post has reported that Kal will be leaving his position as associate director in the Office of Public Engagement at the White House for a role on the hit CBS sitcom.
I love Kal in anything he does, whether it’s as an actor or as a government official. But I’m especially excited because I love Kal Penn and I love How I Met Your Mother!
It’s also exciting to hear that one of the lead females on prime time television will have an Asian American love interest. We’re already familiar with Asian Female – Caucasian Male relationships in Hollywood. It’s about time we show some love to our Asian American men out there!
How do you feel about Kal Penn on How I Met Your Mother?
This has gone on too long.
I have felt like a degenerate teenager with my trendy/rebellious golden-streaked locks that don’t match any of my pretty Spring/Summer wardrobe for far too long.
Just as I was about to purchase a home hair-dye kit, my editor asks me, “Do you want to get your ombre locks fixed by this famous Beverly Hills colorist?”
Thank you, Lord for answering my prayers.
I set an appointment to the luxe Neil George Salon in Beverly Hills, frequented by Reese Witherspoon, Laguna Beach starlets, and Hollywood housewives.
Entering the salon, I was surprised by how hip the atmosphere is. I usually associate Beverly Hills salons with stuffy, boring, pretentiousness but this was neither as the vibe was bustling and colorful and the folks were friendly and inviting.
Troves of star power trekked out to the Snow Flower and the Secret Fan screening at the Tribeca Grand Hotel last week. And the fashion, though tamer than, say, the Cannes Film Fest or NY fashion week, was still something to be noted.
Do you ever wake up one day and feel like there’s something you’re just so thankful for, you wanna tell the world about it?
Sometimes it could be big stuff. (My baby sister is so awesome! My car didn’t die on me today!) Sometimes it’s a little more minuscule.
Today’s one of those days.
I’ve always been a makeup hoarder. I have to pack my two giant makeup pouches everywhere I go just in case my makeup melted off my face one day and I’ll have to reapply.
But Too Faced‘s Glamour to Go palette, available at Sephora, completely changed my world.
It’s cliche but it’s true.
You never know what you have until it’s gone.
My hair was getting long.
It was starting to just become this wisp of a thing that planted flat against my head and clung lifelessly by its roots. Sure, sometimes it was pretty but it was bOring!
Like all restless souls, I needed a change. I wanted to set aside my prudish reputation and BE COOL for once.
Will Harry Shum, Jr. finally be able to shed his moniker as Glee‘s “Other Asian” this season?
From a non-speaking role that was only supposed to last an episode to series regular, Shum’s Mike Chang has finally been promoted to a series regular for season 3 of Glee. Yay!
He, along with the ever-popular Darren Criss (who plays Blaine) will follow in cast-mates Heather Morris and Naya Rivera‘s footsteps to a season with hopefully better story arcs and funnier lines.
We know one person who will be thrilled about Shum’s promotion–longtime friend and collaborator, director John M. Chu.
Chu has already concocted a storyline for the smooth-moving Mike Chang. Chu tweeted to Audrey Magazine:
Hope you take note of that, Ryan Murphy!
