It’s Halloween. October 31. And it is SNOWING! The absolute worst weather for anything but December. Anything before and it’s too soon. Anything after and I am already sick of it. And it isn’t even good snow, it is half rain, freezing and ridiculously cold. No wonder they call it the windy city… but walking the mile and a half home from school was brutal … Continue reading Hallowieners!
A few weeks ago (yes I know, a few weeks is a long time that I kept this from you! I promise, I will be better. But first I have to catch up. And that takes time and effort. Maybe by next week? I swear I will write everyday… hopefully, maybe, as long as something doesn’t come up or go wrong, or if I can’t … Continue reading Mushroom Crepes
Like all the greatest recipes and ideas, or at least this one, was created during chemistry, where, as usual, I had no idea what the teacher was talking about seeing as it was 1st period and even with all of my daydreams (generally about food) I still manage to catch most of the content taught (that’s not to say I understand it). But anyway, I … Continue reading Mini Pumpkin Cakes
I thought I would go for a non food post today because you should really contemplate my too good to be true. I seriously mean it AMAZING Pad Thai. I think I did plenty enough loving on that last post so I will talk fall now. And just because I’m not doing a recipe doesn’t mean I won’t have a few pictures of food. You know … Continue reading All Things Autumn
I love grocery shopping. At produce markets that is. I hate big corporations selling foods for obscene amounts of money and no love. I get such a terrible vibe in those places. It sucks the fun right out of grocery shopping. It is so exciting to walk into the produce market, right into all the fruits and veg, ready to pick out the best ingredients for … Continue reading Pad Thai
Pudding, Pudding, Pudding. Is very similar to my last post, ice cream….whoops, sorry! Well that doesn’t make pudding any less good. Am I right? This pudding caused multiple bowls to be scraped clean! I promised a comparison. So here we go. Chocolate versus Butterscotch, but that’s not what I meant. I was talking about difference in methods. If you read ahead to the recipe you … Continue reading Butterscotch and Chocolate pudding swirl, and a comparison.
I first tried the New York Times Master Ice Cream recipe a few months ago (when it was actually warm!) and it is absolutely amazing! It is thick, creamy and perfect. When I make it plain I don’t even add a vanilla bean, and it is still ridiculously flavourful. Arrgg! Sooo good! I can’t get over it, and I made this a few weeks ago… … Continue reading NYTimes Custard Ice Cream Base
