Stewie Jung: A Photo Essay

Today marks Stewie's 3rd year arrival anniversary! In honor of such a momentous occasion, I baked special treats packed with all his favorite foods.

Shredding carrots (one of Stewie's favorite treats).

"Does this food involve me? I think it does..."

Cheese (another one of Stewie's faves), carrots and olive oil.

Combining dry ingredients (flour, whole wheat pancake mix and some baking powder) separately from wet.

Korean sweet potato, chicken stock and garlic also went into the mix (more of Stewie's faves). A tasty combo, no?

Stewie, do you want to try some batter before it goes in the oven?

"Yes, I would like to try some!"

"I think there's some on my nose..."

"Is it still there?"

"Got it!"

Getting ready to go in the oven...


The finished product! Stewie, do you want to try it?

"For me???"


"Seconds, please!"

Stewie loves his new treats!

2011 holiday recap

N, Stewie and I flew to upstate New York, then San Francisco, and finally rented a car and drove back down to LA for the holidays. We were gone for a solid 14 days and had a great time! We baked cookies, bowled, ate, shopped, played board games and exchanged tons of presents. A quick photo/video recap:

Stewie getting into the holiday spirit at N's parent's place. He makes a cute reindeer, no? That's Minnie in front:

I also helped N's parent's make divinity fudge for the first time ever! They have an old family recipe we used--I had never even tasted divinity fudge ever before, so it was pretty fun learning about it. We made chocolate, white chocolate raspberry, peanut butter and maple flavors. Here they are drying on the kitchen table:

An overly adorable photo of my one-year-old niece Hannah walking with my parents:

Hannah loves to dance when any kind of beat is playing (this time it's to Sesame Street):

Here she is giving a kiss ("bbo bbo" in Korean) to my sister:

Can you say kyoot?
