Spiced Chai Pedicure, a gorgeous treatment that starts with a warm foot bath infused with exotic spices, followed by a Spiced Chai sugar scrub to slough away winter dry skin, followed by a luxurious moisturizer to replenish lost moisture and topped off with a dazzling polish application. Oh,...

Posted by Skimkim It's that time of the year again. It's HOT here in NYC and we Koreans (and half Koreans) find relief in Oi Kimchi, or cucumber. When the temperature starts rising, Koreans get to fermenting cucumbers. I'm telling you, it's like our gazpacho, except spicier. For those of you...

Aaaaaaand, BIG NEWS, for all you West Coast Honeys: NATIONWIDE DELIVERY! Yes, for a $25 flat fee, you can finally get your paws on some Skimkim. And finally, we're getting the recognition we've worked so hard for– Tasting Table ran a National Feature on us yesterday!!! WHAT?! Huge. In...

Posted by Skimkim Today, after hitting the streets with samples for new accounts, I stopped by a bagel shop for my breakfast (it was 3pm, hadn't eaten all day). I was starving and so happy to finally sit down at home and eat a sandwich. Toasted everything bagel w/ turkey, tomato & avocado....

Posted by Skimkim Maybe I'm showing my age too much, but, oh well. When I think of root beer floats, I think of diners or old school soda fountains. Thus, THE PEACH PIT. Yeah, I said it. The rest of you thirty-somethings did, too. I don't know if they ever sat around talking about teenage...

Posted by Skimkim With these sweltering days, we need SOMEthing to cool us down. In my neighborhood of Sunset Park, Brooklyn, a predominately Mexican and Chinese area (with spatterings of Dominicans and Puerto Ricans, and one half Korean-Scotch Irish Woman), horchata is on every corner. A...

Shoot, I even make a kiwi salad dressing (Asian Green Goddess) for Skimkim Foods. Ok, enough of my ranting. If you find some of these, GET THEM. I'd give you some recipe ideas but really, they wouldn't last the time it would take to prep anything. Just pop 'em. Trust. Note: Pick up the...

The beautiful Pippa Vosper and Julia Restoin Roitfeld had invited a small group of women to join them for afternoon tea (which also included one of the strongest rose martinis I've ever experienced) and cakes courtesy of Laduree. I have to say I've never seen a more powerful collection of...

In addition to scarves and boots, this can only mean one thing for me: Chai teas. (Please don't hate me, but I like pumpkin... but not pumpkin spice lattes.) On especially dreary (or stressful) days, I swap out a typical coffee with a chai tea and instantly my day is transformed. I wish...

Posted by Skimkim If you follow me on Twitter (@skimkim), you would have seen that I've been going crazy making quinoa salads recently. The other night, I made a Greek version along with a huge vat of vegan lentil soup. Sooooo delicious. Oh, and HEALTHY. Quinoa is considered a whole grain...
