Chocolaty Multi-grain Pancake

It's not from scratch but I added chocolate powder and chips to the multi-grain pancake mix. It turned out like chocolate brownies or simply chocolate cake, and dding cream on top made it rich taste.

Sweet Potato Fries

A sweet and healthy fries for today! We used to add sugar to sweet potato and place in a stick for snack. But this time, the sweet potato itself is already sweet. So, let it be that way.

Hot Pot Chocolate (Fondue)

I'll be moving back to the Philippines for good, I'll be busy and while I'm away, here's a treat to everyone! I'll be back posting once I'm settled. See you guys when I get back. Cheers!

Time to dip the Pancake Muffin and Choco Coconut Balls in this small pot I bought in Dante Coffee. For those who love chocolate, never mind if it's summer, just let it cool first before eating :) The kids love it!

Chocolate Coconut Balls and Pancake Muffin

Nothing difference from the first Coconut Balls I made, I just added chocolate powder to the mixture. For the muffin, I used pancake mix, followed the procedure from the box, and just baked in muffin pan. I made these two for the hot chocolate pot (also known as chocolate fondue).

V is for Vietnamese Food

Although I already tried cooking Vietnamese Food, but living in Taipei for nine years and yet never tried eating Vietnamese Food in a restaurant. Finally, thanks to my Vietnamese Classmates for taking the class in Madame Jill's Vietnamese Restaurant last month. Here are the meal we had:

Simple Carrot Cupcake

The first time I tried eating carrot cake/bread was my sister's home-baked. She used to make a lot and give to friends as a gift on Christmas. I made this carrot cupcake today, definitely not the same as hers. This is just simple one.

Avocado Ice Cream

It's not yet avocado season for sure, you know why? I bought 2 avocados for NT$145. In fact I can buy  for only NT$40 during avocado season. I was just craving to make avocado ice scramble, the way we used to do when were little. For a change, this time I added cream that made it into Avocado Ice cream. That's right, time to beat the heat!

Baked Penne with Spinach

It's just a simple dinner, no exact recipe! Run out of lasagna pasta, instead I used penne pasta and I added spinach, baked until the mix-grated cheese melted. The left over can just be heated for the next meal or simple eat it like cold noodle salad.

Simple Jackfruit Candy

Jackfruit is a kind of tropical fruit that looks like Durian, but bigger than Durian. It's yellow inside and sweet when it's ripe. I remember in the place where I grew up, we had a tree and it had lots of fruits down to the ground. I'm not fun of eating jackfruit, but I usually made them into candies by cooking with condensed milk.  I bought a can of jackfruit in syrup at Vietnamese Restaurant here in Taipei, and here's the catch it's made in Thailand. Filipino made the candies and  International Classmates around the globe tasted them. This is what I call "a taste of culture" :) This is similar to Yema (Custard Candy), but I didn't add any eggs that made into just Simple Jackfruit Candy.

Simple Whole Wheat French Toast

The whole wheat bread I made that turned to french toast! What a nice day to start the day when eating proper homemade breakfast specially in this side of town where breakfast stores are all over. French toast and hot dog, plus a few seedless grapes. Everyone knows how to make french toast, but I never posted one so here it is :)
