Panko-Crusted Chicken with Zesty Lemon-Garlic Pasta, Salad

Dear Reader,
I am sharing a bit of exciting news — as of today, my good friend Sarah Yee​ and I are starting a little food business! As you all know, we both love to cook. Now, we’ll be channeling this passion and skills into cooking for our community through Josephine.

Faithful readers may be asking, “where’ve you been, Yiling?” All over. Here is a list:

Friendly Friday: Introducing the Bizarro Tumblr, a Look Behind the Scenes

My friend Amy asked me when I was in Minnesota once, “do you ever make recipes that don’t turn out?”  and that spurred me starting a collection of fail/disappointment pictures. These have been deposited here as a stream, and has started to include situations I think funny.

You know, we’re all human, and we might as well admit it online, right?

I hope it makes you laugh. Let me know yes or no on that.

Future posts may also just include general behind-the-scenes tidbits, but you’ll just have to keep watching to find oot.

Little-known secret: not everything that goes up here goes up on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram accounts, and some times what does go up did not go up right away. Thanks for putting up with my corny jokes. ;D I made that one up myself, just for you.

Welcome to the Newly Redesigned Blog!

Dear Food the Wong Way readers,
We are happy to officially announce the launch of a newly redesigned website!

Cynthia Oconer has worked with me for a fresh new look with an emphasis on images. After all, you eat with your eyes. All this, while negotiating time to work on it between both our busy schedules stuffed with life.


Here’s a few of the changes:

• A fresh title banner at the top featuring fun cooking tools with a crisp, unified layout and matching color scheme
• More menu options with tools to help your browsing
• “Read More” buttons to give you a view of more posts on the landing page
• A slide deck on the landing page you can click on to get to recently featured posts

Post below to share your thoughts and suggestions.

Thanks for your faithful readership, hope you enjoy the new look!


A little about Cynthia:

Hi, I’m a Seattle transplant and enjoying the scene thus far. I’m excited to work and offer my energy and enthusiasm as a dedicated professional using my skills to create quality design solutions that fit the background and culture of the organization.
