Last week, for mother’s day, I made Sweet Potato, Avocado and Eggs Hash for breakfast, and I also made bread! These rolls are really easy to make and have a bit of a crunchy crust with a soft interior.
They might just look like potatoes, but I assure you it tastes much better than a raw potato. I like how they’re single portions because it makes it so much cuter and easier to serve because you don’t need to cut out a slice from a big loaf.
In other news, I submitted a few of my photos to foodgawker.com (check out my profile here) and although many were declined, I had three of them accepted! I never knew what a big difference it would make though, but yesterday I was amazed that my daily views tripled just because of those three photos. Incredible, huh? I will now stop being lazy put more effort into submitting photos!
Adapted from: Bread for Breakfast: Foolproof Overnight Rolls An easy breakfast roll that can be prepared the night before for a delicious morning meal. Crunchy on the outside and soft in the inside. Ingredients: 1 tsp. active dry yeast
1 1/5 cup (300 g) cold water
2 7/8 cup (320 g) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (72 g) whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in the water, then mix in the flours until starts forming a dough. Add in the salt and knead with your hands until thoroughly mixed. It will be sticky but that’s ok. Cover the bowl with a plate or plastic wrap and let rest overnight at room temperature.
In the morning, preheat oven to 250 °C (482 °F). Transfer risen dough onto a floured surface and fold the corners of the dough into the middle until it forms a rectangular package. Cover with a bowl for 45 minutes.
Uncover and cut into 8 pieces. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes then reduce temperature to 210 °C (410 °F) and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Serve straight away!
In Hong Kong, steamed buns, or Mantou, are essential to any dim sum.
I take no credit for these whatsoever. My mom adapted these buns from a Chinese recipe that I begged kindly asked her to translate for me so I could share the recipe with you guys. The steamed buns taste absolutely wonderful. Soft and warm, with a hint of matcha, I gotta say I loved them!Read More »
On Saturday, my brother had a soccer game that was pretty far away from home, which meant I was home alone for the entire day. Which also meant that I had to make dinner. My mom requested soup, so I had to look in the fridge and there were not a lot of vegetables. Just a few stalks of celery, carrots, and bell peppers.
And that is how this soup came to be.
Considering that I only added water (chicken stock, to me, always seems so unhealthy for some reason) and spices, the result was so creamy, I was shocked!Read More »
Healthy fries just got real. Sure, they don’t actually taste like salty potato fries, but don’t compare them to that unhealthy junk. Think of it as soft baked zucchini coated with a crispy layer of cheesy goodness and breadcrumbs.
I think summer flew by way too fast. I did summer school for a month, went camping one time and now it’s already school again. I don’t know if I should be sad or happy. On one end, I know I’ll have lots of homework and projects and classwork and tests, but on the other hand, I am excited to see my friends again and see if there are any new kids coming (our school is small so a new kid is a big deal)!
I will now veer away from the topic of school since that’s making me anxious. 🙂 Read More »
Yum. This is a killer bread machine recipe. Why? Because it makes pita pockets! Which you can fill with literally anything, such as an avocado mixture, or curry, or falafel, or your salad, or chunks of chicken wrapped in lettuce… Shall I continue? Oh, and it also has a fragrant fresh smell that wafts from the oven to your nose.
Since I’m all caught up in school, I’ll just leave you with the recipe. And photos of course.
Look! There’s a pocket! It was actually easier than I thought it would be. Read More »
Just in time for Valentine’s day! I was debating whether to make cookies, or maybe dessert, but I decided to change things up a bit since most of my posts are about baked goods anyways. This soup has such a lovely shade of red, and with feta cheese on top it tastes super good! Velvety and creamy, this soup has no milk or cream! My entire family loved it.
Did I mention that it is a one pot recipe? And it doesn’t need chicken stock for taste because water does the job quite well with the beets, sweet potatoes, and carrots.Read More »
An easy, yummy vegetable to eat as a side dish. Asparagus. When you hear the name, most of you think of the weird after smell that you can smell when you go to the bathroom. But it is completely worth it! Just make sure you don’t go to a public washroom afterwards (you know, the embarrassment when you come out of the stall and see everyone wrinkling their noses!).
This a pretty short post, but I’m so wrapped up with stuff in school that it is hard to find time to write food posts. But I usually post stuff on my instagram account, @akitchenfable, so you can check that out if you ever get anxious of waiting for me to post something. I know you guys can’t wait to hear from me 😉 .Read More »
This makes the perfect lunch or side dish for dinner.
Kale doesn’t taste that wonderful on its own, but mixed with a ton of ingredients including persimmon and toasted almonds, I couldn’t stop taking another serving.
It was that good.
Before, my mother never wanted to buy kale, even though she knew it was healthy. She took one look at it in the store, and decided it looked too bland. So we never ate kale a lot, except when someone brought kale salad over to a party. And the kale salads always tasted awesome, but it didn’t change my mother’s opinion on kale.Read More »
Tender, moist and yummy potatoes. The lemon makes these taste so good, just like those Greek potatoes you can get at the restaurant! These frequently find themselves on our dinner plates because they are easy to make and everyone likes the taste.
Had a very good Thanksgiving dinner yesterday, and these potatoes were one of the side dishes. The turkey, by the way, was humongous! We had so many things to eat, I think everyone was pretty full afterwards.Read More »
