Ham & Cheese Pretzel Bites. Egg Drop. New categories for me.

Egg Drop

I’m filing this under ‘kids‘ and ‘breakfast‘. Not because it’s a specific food for children, but because my baby loves to eat this (will I ever stop calling him my baby? I somehow doubt it). This is by far his favorite breakfast -not to mention he loves to ‘help‘ me cook it – which makes it a fun thing for the both of us. If he likes it, chances are more toddlers out there like it and well, us moms gotta give each other a hand whenever we can, right! It’s just a little break from the traditional way of cooking eggs and it’s actually a pretty decent start of the day, nutritionally speaking. It’s not just fun to make but they’re also great to serve because they’re oh-so simple, but look oh-so good, and not just for kids!

I had an idea.

Honey Glazed Chicken and Bacon Bites

Actually, it was more like my three hundred and forty-sixth idea for this month and I now have the hips to show for it. No biggie, I consider it a small sacrifice for eating food that tastes this good. So I asked myself: “Would it be a really crazy idea to wrap loads of bacon around chicken strips and brush them with a spruced up honey marinade?”. Why yes, Kay, it would be. But frankly, I like crazy. Chocolate Wasted Cake. Ever since my brother started using the phrase "I wanna get chocolate wasted" from the movie Grown Ups, I've been wanting to make this cake for his birthday. Being a chocoholic myself, I had no trouble coming up with ways to fill this cake with layer upon layer of chocolatey goodness. Just looking at this cake, I think you'll agree that it definitely deserves its name.

Season with Spice - Features: Homemade Spicy Ginger Ale

If Ginger Ale did not include real ginger – with all its innumerable health benefits – why would our parents ask us to drink it when we have an upset stomach? Why would the canned drink be so popular on airplanes where many of us are prone to motion sickness? Real ginger can alleviate these symptoms. But when our stomach hurts and we’re munching on some dry crackers, or when the airline stewardess hands us that small bag of pretzels and asks us what we want to drink, we don’t think why we crave a can of Ginger Ale, we just order one.

Some traditions never change. What began as Ginger Beer a few centuries ago in England – a concoction of ginger, water, sugar, lemon juice and ginger beer plant – eventually led to the creation of a non-alcoholic version called Golden Ginger Ale.

frites & fries - Garlic Knots

Preschool-me was so fascinated by the fact that Grandma smelled like garlic 24/7 and I was always so amazed that something so small could create so much flavor. My grandmother’s native Shangdong province uses a lot of garlic in their cooking so it wasn’t surprising to see my mom or my grandmother use up an entire bulb of garlic for a small dinner.
