Very Strawberry Ice Pops

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Finally! We moved, but it’s not all smooth sailing yet. We’re living out of boxes and we don’t have a kitchen yet. While our perfect kitchen is being built (which we will be talking about soon), I’m going to have to get crafty. I do have many plug-in appliances (rice cooker, toaster oven, panini press, waffle maker, microwave, etc.) so we’re still going to have a ball here. I think we’re going to be pleasantly surprised with how much I (or you) can do without a kitchen. (Gulp) Determined to eat well every single day without exceptions, here goes…

Before the string of cold days, we had some wonderful hot days, and that’s when I started thinking about one of my favorite summer treats. I am such a huge fan of ice cream and gelato, but occasionally, I want something lighter. Starting in high school, I would often grab FrozFruits at the delis nearby. Chunky Strawberry was/is my favorite.

Recently, I was ready to grab a Chunky Strawberry and I thought to check the ingredients. Yup, it’s made with high fructose corn syrup! That was it, I would have to make my own. I wanted to maintain what I do love about it though, the very strawberry flavor (deceptively natural), the chunks of strawberries in it, and the cool satisfying feeling it left me with every time. I made special care to keep all parts of the bargain and the result was better than I could have hoped for.

Coffee Milk Tea

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Coffee Milk Tea, called Yuen Yang (Ying Yang) in Chinese, is simply what it sounds like: coffee, milk, and tea. The coffee vs. tea debate is as common as the vanilla vs. chocolate, with fervent devotees on both sides. As hard as I’ve tried, I don’t favor one over the other and drink both coffee and tea almost every day. I wonder what that says about me? Indecisive, un-opinionated (ha, my brother is laughing out loud somewhere), equal opportunistic? It probably doesn’t mean anything other than my body can handle a lot of caffeine.

Simplified German Chocolate Cake

Simplified German Chocolate Cake

We had a little German themed dinner with pretzels, schnitzel, cabbage, and roasted potatoes so I wanted to follow through with a German dessert. I was feeling a bit lazy and decided to simplify German Chocolate Cake, a lot. I’m a little embarrassed by just how easy this was to make.

Raisin Banana Bread Pudding

Saturday, October 25, 2008

I had a little less than half of the raisin bread from the Chinese Bakery left. I had some ripe bananas, and I wanted to use them up. Naturally, the ingredients lend themselves to Bread Pudding. A couple of things to note here: organic half and half is a bit thinner than regular, at least it seems to be, to me. I added raisins because Chinese bakery raisin bread doesn’t have much raisins in it so adjust depending on how much raisin the bread already has. If you can’t get your hands on Chinese bakery raisin bread, try challah or raisin challah.
