Cooking 101: #20 – Rice Crispy Stuffed French Toast

Dessert for Breakfast? Yes Please… I had some rice crispy squares and I wanted to use some bread to make breakfast, so what better than French Toast! I wish I had some French Baguette because I was got the idea from watching the Food Channel and they used a Baguette! Oh Well:) This satisfied my … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #19 – Japanese Curry Chicken w/ Rice

Thank Goodness for Air Mailed Glico Curry… I don’t always eat curry, but somehow I was just craving Japanese Curry. That creamy, mildly spicy yet sweet sauce over firmly cooked rice “drools”:). How fortunate that my friend mailed me boxes of Glico Mild Curry Blocks <3! I was even more excited to cook after watching … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #18 – The Perfect Boiled Egg

Sharing the Secret to Boiling Attractive Eggs… I was actually looking for a Creamy Carbonara Recipe and on the side of the website there was this blurb, “How to Make Perfect Boiled Eggs”. My first response was “How does one Boil an Egg Wrong?”. I mean you can’t boil an egg wrong exactly, but you … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #17 – Tuna Fish Cakes

Watching A Little Too Much Man Vs. Food… It’s always been an item on my Bucket list to do some sort of eating challenge and lately I’ve been watching Man vs.Food daily. This wasn’t part of any challenge, but I was attracted by some tasty crab cakes! Unfortunately, I didn’t have any crab meat, so … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #16 – Chicken Stirfry

Bean Sprouts Go Bad Way Too Quickly… Every time I want to eat Bean Sprouts I have to think of ways to cook it in large portions because, apparently, they only sell it in large portions. It goes great with Soup Noodles, but I wanted to try a stir-fry because the Bean Sprouts really soak … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #15 – Baked Cajun Spice Chicken Leg

To Be Honest I Bought the Wrong Thing… I actually thought a chicken leg was along the same lines as a chicken drumstick. But it’s actually not as meaty as the drumstick and has a lot more fat and skin. INGREDIENTS: – 2 Chicken Legs – 1/2 White Onion – 1 tbsp Minced Garlic – … Continue reading

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
