Fried eggs on Mango-leek-cashew salad

After months of hiding behind the clouds, Mr. Sun is finally out. It means like the blossoms starting to come out of hibernation, I’d be enthusiastic to go to the groceries and cook more. Like every time I pick the kids up we would buy a loaf of bread or two before going home. There’s that Billa store near the school where we get our stuff and at the end of the month that’s also where I would take a free recipe magazine from the cashier stand for cooking inspiration. I’ve long wanted to...

Cinnamon Toast

Breakfasts. They’re supposedly the foundation of everyday and yet I fail to prepare one that would energize the kids, hubby and myself. It has been my goal to wake up earlier so I can have all the time to make a decent meal. I fail…all the time. The easiest I can prepare are toasts which the kids normally like with just butter.  For hubby an egg and coffee with the toasts would suffice. So to spice those bread on some days, here’s my cinnamon toast for easy fix. Four ingredients and a toaster...

Breakfasts at Victoria Hotels

(photo from http://www.slrobertson.com) — My kids love to eat and have a good time. However, we all love traveling too. Imagine what hubby would search for each time we travel. Hotel with  ample amenities to keep the kids entertained, a pool for them to enjoy when it’s too hot, a park or playground just near the hotel for them to unwind and of course, yummy food. They enjoy breakfast buffets just like during our Paris trip. Thankfully the chain of Victoria hotels offers various restaurants with a...

Cupcakes for Breakfast

Early morning yummy smell. That’s what woke up the kids on a Saturday morning. The weather hasn’t been so cooperative – summer at 14 degrees? It’s not really that bad…I’m not really a summer person. I enjoy 18-22° more than sunny 30° or up. I’d prefer that too over rainy days and especially when I’m staying at home finishing translation jobs. So along with the rainy and cool atmosphere I baked these yummy breakfast treats. Normally they’d prefer doughnuts,...

Taho

I’m glad I was somehow able to  transfer this blog’s content to my other blog, really thought I’d lose everything. I just decided to keep this blog for recipes. Some of my entries that I transferred included a write up about taho (soy bean curd with caramel and tapioca pearls) – a childhood breakfast favorite. I’ve always enjoyed taho with my older sister. We would hurriedly get our glasses, mine would be stout but big, hers would be thin and taller…it doesn’t represent...

Homemade Taho

-Silken tofu with tapioca pearls and caramel- “The best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” goes Fanny Ferns’s quote. Jokingly, Robert Byrne believes  “Anybody who believes that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach flunked geography.” 😀 The last quote always makes me laugh. Thinking of it it should have been biography instead of geography but the author was  obviously suggesting something else, which I wouldn’t want to talk about. I can attest to...
