When they go dough, we go pie. 🥧| Last night, I posted to my story about an incident with a stranger who hurled racist insults at me as they drove by. I can’t say I’m that surprised, particularly in this climate, and I know there are people/communities that experience this (and worse) every day of their lives. We could stand to share some light, so tell me what act of kindness you’re putting out in the world today. (There’s a link in my ACRS story highlight if you need an idea. 👆🏽) Let’s be good to each other. 💛 . . . . . . . . . . #lokokitchen #strawberry #cherry #rhubarb #edibleflowers #hexagon #ombre #pie #pieart #f52grams #buzzfeast #huffposttaste #saveur #foodandwine #tastingtable #bakeandshare #onmytable #beautifulcuisines #postracialamerica #kindness #light #love #smallactsofkindness #lovewins #acrs @acrsnews @huffpostasianvoices #seattle #yeahbutwhatdoesitlooklikebaked

Hold on for year life. 🌪I 1 year, 100 posts, and a life completely transformed. I won’t keep telling my story since it’s been repeated in a lot of spaces now, but it has been an unreal 12 months. I’m perpetually brain-boggled and wildly grateful. Thank you for embracing the pie art and tolerating the puns. Vamos por más! 🤓| Prickly pear lime curd tart with mango tiles. ✨ . . . . . . . . . #lokokitchen #lime #pricklypear #mango #tart #tartart #textiles #geometricpatterns #1year #alifetransformed #mindblown #puns #designmilk #f52grams #buzzfeast #huffposttaste #bhgfood #onmytable #beautifulcuisines #marthabakes #imsomartha #cupcakeproject #heresmyfood #foodandwine #foodwinewomen #howisummer #seattle

Top to autumn. 🍁| This year has been a colossal pumpkin grind. So many events have struck a gourd and it feels like we’re skating on thin spice. Oh to simply squash our hands of the matter. But we must do harvest to keep pushing through. Let’s band together as thick as leaves and put the fall tales to rest. See you at the polls. ✔️| Hand-sliced cardamom pear tart; revisiting an old favorite with fresh produce. 🍐 . . . . . . . . . . #lokokitchen #pear #cardamom #tart #tartart #waves #fall #autumn #harvest #ohmygourd #thickasthieves #talltales #toptobottom #getoutandvote #f52grams #buzzfeast #huffposttaste @huffpostasianvoices #foodandwine #bareaders #marthabakes #imsomartha #bhgfood #mywilliamssonoma #fromwherewedesign #designforall @design #whpcolorplay #seattle

Happy as a cran. 🐚 I I spent the weekend blissfully soaking up all the sunshine in my hometown. Returning to chillier temps is bringing on major emoceans and much sand-wringing. Monday mourning is not just a figure of beach. 🏝I Channeled the lovely @julie_jonesuk for my contribution to the #yesyoucranberry party buzzing around the internet today. Cranberry curd tart with golden kiwis scales. 🥝 . . . . . . . . . . #lokokitchen #cranberry #curd #goldenkiwi #tart #tartart #scales #sandiego #sunshine #tacos #beach #ocean #sand #sun #surf #happyasaclam #figureofspeech #f52grams #onmytable #huffposttaste #thekitchn #foodandwine #buzzfeast #amazonkitchen #marthabakes #imsomartha #california
