the first Simply Delish Gathering

Last night, I was so excited to host the first Simply Delish Gathering with a fellow foodie, the lovely & talented Stephanie Chang. We were surrounded by great guests, delicious food & fun conversations. Thank you to everyone who attended! I am so thankful to be able to meet new people and be inspired by others. Our theme was a late autumn gathering and we decorated the table with pumpkins, persimmons, leaves & each person had an apple with a name tag (idea from Pinterest). We served citrus herb roasted chickens as one of the main dishes. This was the juiciest chicken I ever had, made by Steph. Check out her recipe on how to perfectly roast chicken. I wish I took some more photos of the food but I was just too excited to sit down and start eating! Thank you to Steph for being an amazing co-host and to our new friends 🙂

Just cook your steak how you like (I season with salt & pepper, sear it in a pan and finish in the oven) and slice into strips. The mushrooms were sauteed with olive oil and the bok choy was steamed and then sauteed with oyster sauce. Below is a good recipe for bok choy with oyster sauce. I did my own version with oyster sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil and minced garlic. After everything is cooked, assemble the ingredients on top of rice and top with more oyster sauce. SO GOOD! It’s …
