A Little Rebranding

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my blog. While you may have seen many entries in the past, this is my actual first post on this site. Due to an expansion of my ideas and some writer’s block, I decided to have a little rebranding and started a new site here.

My new goal is to have a blog where I can talk about food as well as crafts and design. As I have been doing more and more crafts for my wedding, I realized that I’ll always be drawn to arts and design, and I want an area of my blog to share these ideas, without needing to create a separate site. Hence  Wok Papers Scissors was born.

I had been keeping my cooking adventures since 2011. I have migrated all of those entries into this blog so you can take a look at my “old stuff.”

The new site is still a work in progress at the moment, but please feel free to check it out. I have migrated all of the posts from this blog to the site, so you will still be able to access the contents. It will take me quite a while to fix all of my images, but hopefully I can get all of that done by the end of the year.

Enjoy, and I look forward to sharing many recipes with you.

Meyer Lemon Marmalade Three Ways

I ordered $30 worth of Meyer lemons from the Lemon Ladies Orchard in California. Once I had a list of recipes lined up, I wished I spent $50 instead. The first thing was marmalade. I enjoy marmalade enough that I would eat it with a spoon….but since I’m scared of eating an entire jar in…

Meyer Lemon Rolls

Being nice to your sweetie doesn’t just end after Valentine’s Day. How about surprising your loved one with a nice little breakfast in the morning? These are lemon rolls, which are essentially cinnamon rolls but filled with lemon sweetness. I used my cinnamon rolls dough as a base (but used half WW and half AP…

Dinner for Two: Buttermilk-Brined Cornish Hens

Happy Birthday to me! I had been banned from baking any desserts all week, because SO didn’t want me to bake my own birthday treat, so unfortunately I had no treat for you. However, I have a quick date-night dinner if you are still debating what to make your significant other! Roasted Cornish hen is…

Elvis Bars

While there has been thousands of chocolate recipes floating around Pinterest because Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, I thought I’d come up with a different type of dessert. How about some bacon? Don’t get me wrong, I looooove chocolate. I also love bacon and peanut butter. And who says Valentine’s Day has to be filled with…

Baked Garlic Parmesan Drumsticks

Superbowl is approaching and the interwebs has been filled with all sorts of creative party foods. I am a huge sucker for chicken wings. Since I can’t handle too much spicy flavor, garlic parmesan is my go-to wing flavor. I had a bunch of drumsticks left over in my freezer, so I used those instead…

Sweet Bourbon Sausage Pasta

I finally looked at my Blogging Report from 2013. It’s interested that some of my recipes were shared to Reddit. Anyhoo, here’s a quick weeknight recipe for you. It’s one of those “roughly 30-minute meals”. Sorry for the cellphone photos again. This is a quick tomato-based pasta sauce, flavored with Italian sausage and sweet bourbon….

Eggnog Bread Pudding

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break! SO and I traveled around New England a bit to see family, and I also had the opportunity to meet up with my high school friends, and have some of my bridesmaids meet for the first time! That means a lot of eating out and not a…

Eggnog German Pancakes

Pancakes and I seem to have a love-hate relationship. I really want to love them, but I can never get myself to order them at a diner when they are huge and I can barely eat 1/3 of the stack before I want to roll over and go back to sleep. Then I discovered these…

Of Mice and Gingerbread Men

I have made a short attempt to bake a lot of cookies over the past couple of weeks, but SO started giving me glares for filling the refrigerator up with goods that I felt guilty. One of the things that I made were gingerbread cookies. I don’t remember why I didn’t make any last year,…

Cheesy Bacon Puff Pastry Twists

I think I eat too much bacon – wait, what kind of statement is that? I have been making way too many bacon-wrapped dates, so I thought it was time to branch out. This was one of the easiest appetizer recipes I had ever made – even the twisting wasn’t so terrible. They turned out…
