In one of the small malls in Chinatown Toronto, there is a small stall that makes these waffles. I don’t really know what the name of these are but it looked like waffles. The main thing that drew me in to buying one was how delicious it smelled!! It cost me about $3.50 for this. I ended up snacking on this tearing off small bites as I was walking through Chinatown today. I’d definitely buy another one for a nice snack.
My first time in Toronto Canada and also my first time eating Vietnamese food. I ordered Grilled chicken and rice with a Quiche from Pho Hung in downtown Toronto on Spadina avenue. I must admit that this was a treat my first day. The chicken was moist and soft and it went well with the rice and Quiche.
I found a recipe online at All recipes.com for yellow cake and decided to make some. I had some shortening, and cream that needed to be used so I made this cake. This cake didn’t taste like your usual boxed yellow cake. Instead, it tasted like pound cake. At least, to me it did. Maybe because it required the use of 4 eggs that made it taste rich in flavor. It was still a really good cake and deserved the 4 star rating it received.
I’ve wanted to make truffles for a while now. I had a whole bunch of nestle semi-sweet chocolate chip packages in the freezer and decided to use one of them to make truffles. I bought Half & Half instead of heavy cream because it was more affordable for me at the time. I used about 5 tablespoons of butter and a 1 1/2 cup of half of Half & Half. I think I used too much Half & Half. When I prepared it to be frozen, it couldn’t stay frozen. It turned into chocolate milk in a matter of minutes once removed from the freezer. The truffles taste GREAT but it was hard to get them to form into balls without the heat from my hand melting them. They melt in your hands and your mouth!
I rolled the truffles in four ingredients: walnuts, almonds, crushed coconut cookies and powdered chocolate. I ended up using the left over chocolate to make some really delicious chocolate milk!
There is a Fleischmann’s bread competition coming up and I wanted to bake my pizza as if this was the competition itself. As I’ve mentioned before, I love my homemade pizza! It tastes great to me! One of the judging criteria in the upcoming competition is appearance. My pizza is normally covered with cheese so it’s usually a surprise to find out what other toppings are on it. I couldn’t figure out why that happens even when I add the cheese first. So with this pizza, I added the cheese first then the pepperoni. Instead of cooking it at 375 F like I normally do, I cooked it at 415 F and not only were the pepperonis visible, the cheese didn’t look completely burnt like it had in the past. If I didn’t add too much tomato sauce, this would have been perfect. It’s a series of trial and error but I’m learning. 🙂
It’s been many years since I’ve made my homemade peach cobbler. Thank goodness my recipe was still in good condition. After reading Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook, I wanted to challenge myself to make a lattice crust decoration. This is also the first time I’ve made the crust using wheat flour. The wheat flour was overpowering the rest of the cobbler. I don’t think I’ll use wheat flour again for this kind of dessert.
