Cooking 101: #14 – Low-Fat Panna Cotta

Need Some Grown-Up Jello… I was talking to an old friend about how I use to make jello that you could bounce off the walls (LOL). You might think that’s kind of strange, but I loved it because it’s like candy! But I’ve been going to the gym routinely, so I didn’t want to eat … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #13 – Mix Mix Noodles

The Take-WHATEVER-You-Got-In-The-Fridge Noodles… About 11pm at night felt super hungry (note to self: this is extremely unhealthy!) so what better late-night snack than noodles? But since it was near the weekend, my fridge was running low on …everything! I didn’t even have instant noodles, so I just used Angel Hair Pasta and topped it with … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #12 – Sweet N’ Sour Chicken Wings

I LOVE SWEET N’ SOUR… So since I bought 3lbs of Wings at T&T, I still had a lot of wings this weekend to try out other sauces. I saw a lot of recipes for Sweet N’ Sour Chicken, so I wanted to use the sauce on Wings too! It might seem like the generic … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #11 – Ginger-Garlic Chicken WIngs

Missing My Mom’s Soy Sauce Chicken… I bought like 3lbs of wings from T&T, planning on a WING-WEEKEND:)! Wings are probably the one thing that you can eat everywhere in Ottawa, but the ones that I wanted are a harder to find. I love Honey Garlic Wings, but still can’t compare to those Asian- Style … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #10 – Mushroom Omelette

Napoleon Cake-like Omelette, Why not?… So I was watching YouTube and I wanted to try this plating design, but I think it matches a plate of dessert more. INGREDIENTS: – 2 Large Eggs – 1 Small Can of Mushrooms – 1/2 White Onion (I sliced most of it and diced a bit for topping) – … Continue reading

Browsing through Urbanspoon.com it didn’t receive a lot of rave reviews, but seemed … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #9 – Asian-Inspired Rigatoni

All You Need is Sesame Oil… So I guess I was just experimenting with this. Usually I would use Olive Oil to keep the pasta moist and add a bit of flavor that goes well with Tomato Sauce. But I felt like eating something more with an Asian flavor and just wanted to dabble with … Continue reading

No doubt a tourist spot in Sydney, so I definitely had to pay a visit before my flight. On my last day, I got out bright and early … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #8 – Omurice (Japanese Omelette Rice)

The Wonders of YouTube… I usually follow RunnyRunny999 on Youtube, cause I think he’s pretty funny and he cooks dishes that I’d want to eat! Plus, he’s not some professional chef, so hopefully if he can cook it I can too! I saw his video for making Omurice, which I could probably eat non-stop if I … Continue reading
