Sorry for the lack of posts for over a month. As my last semester of school wound down, I found myself at the complete and utter mercy of my own procrastination. I have finally dug myself out of the pit … Continue reading →
I remember when The Family Dog first took over the rather dismal, little Italian restaurant in the mini complex by Morningside. As I walked by it to buy some cookies from Alon’s, I thought to myself, cute name. I’ll try … Continue reading →
My friend and I decided to eat lunch somewhere in the H-Mart complex located on Pleasant Hill Road this weekend. As we pulled in, we noticed a new addition to the mini complex that lies between the busy street and … Continue reading →
Going to a college located halfway across the country eliminates worries of demands to return home every weekend, of surprise visits from parents every other weekend, and of giving (sometimes fabricated) excuses of being bogged down with homework and tests. … Continue reading →
Two years ago, I visited the Iberian Pig for my first and last time, until today. Don’t get me wrong – I had a wonderful experience. However, the relatively high prices and lack of transportation, for I had yet to … Continue reading →

About two months ago, as my friend and I drove back home from Emory, he suddenly pointed at Kitsch’n and exclaimed, “Hey! Did they close? Why’s the building so dark?” I figured that it since was already 10PM, the restaurant … Continue reading →
OK, so I was a little slow getting onto the Antico Pizza bandwagon. This pizzeria caught my attention shortly after its opening. Fountains of praise gushed forth, from Atlanta journals and Yelpers to my ever-critical fellow Emory blogger, The Toothfish. … Continue reading →
If you ask me about Taiwan, I will be able to spout about its foods for hours, and not be able to dredge up any specifics about its history or politics, besides some common knowledge. Ever since I can remember, … Continue reading →
Welcome to One Little Pig!
I first stepped into the food blogging world my Junior year in high school. I had just completed a research paper that I had been working on for a month and I needed a reward. Cookies. I mean, what better reward was there for a month of flipping through books, poring over articles, and organizing everything into a coherent argument? There wasn’t one. I went online and typed in “cookie recipes.” Near the top of the Google search results screen, I saw the link, Cookie Recipes | smitten kitchen and clicked on it. I was assaulted by mouthwatering photos of cookies of all shapes and sizes and flavors. One link led to another and it was 2:00AM when I realized I still hadn’t decided on a cookie recipe to try. From then on, I spent my free time drooling over photos, entering giveaways, and experiencing restaurants all over the country with my favorite food bloggers. I want to thank Deb (SmittenKitchen), Jamie (MyBakingAddiction), Joy (JoytheBaker), Nicole (BakingBites), Angie (Bakerella), and the folks working hard over at SeriousEats for bringing me into the world of food blogging. I continue to read your blogs and constantly find inspiration from the delicious foods and experiences you share.
Now, over four years later, I have finally created One Little Pig. Here, I will write about my kitchen adventures, restaurant experiences (both good and bad), various nommy foods I encounter, and, most importantly, the interweaving of food and my life. Thank you for accompanying me on my food journey!
