I noticed that I haven't been talking about food lately (my no. 1 passion). I have somewhat abandoned my other blog about food, Gula & Garam, since like who has the time to commit to 2 blogs, let alone 1?
Anyways, since I graduated ProBaking 1 last March, I have been experimenting on baking and cooking. Lately I have been drawn more on learning how to perfect a cake and actually learning more on Korean food. I swear I am secretly Korean... Maybe in my past life!
I made some Spinach and Bean Sprout Korean Side Dish. Mother went ham on this. It was so good consuming this with a bowl of hot rice and spam. #droolz
These cupcakes were made for a baby shower with a Superman theme (hence the colored frostings).
One day I was craving Beef Teriyaki. Then I went to the store, bought beef and duh, made Beef Teriyaki. Again, Mother went ham on this.
This naked Carrot Cake was made for a baby shower at work for a fellow nurse. Her baby's name was Ella, but after the birth of the baby girl, we found out she named her Kennedy Ella. How freakin' adorable is that name?!?!
My Assist. Manager at work challenged me to make a layered Pineapple Upside Down cake. I have never had or made this cake before and now I know why this is a classic American cake. Hot damn this cake was glorious. So for this cake, the top was the Upside down cake and the layers were Vanilla cake with whipped buttercream & crushed pineapples in between. #winner
Another Korean dish. During that nurse's baby shower, my little Korean nurse made Japchae. I asked her what in the world is this noodle dish because it was divine. I made some at home and of course, Mother went ham on it. I ended up making 2 huge foils of this for my church's potluck.
One Sunday morning, Mother wanted Pancakes. She woke me up on a deep sleep (uh, thanks). Mother wants pancakes, Mother gets pancakes. I ended up feeding the whole house. These were so fluffy, even Chimmy was jealous. I really need to practice on flipping dem jacks though!
I made Baked Zucchini & Corn Pasta and it was a hit at home & at work.
I really do miss taking cooking/baking classes. Unfortunately I can not continue to take ProBaking 2. My school decided to merge ProBaking 1 & 2 into just, ProBaking. I was really sad when I found out about it, but what do you do. Good thing there is Craftsy.com but I still do miss having the human interaction. I guess I will browse around for other classes, like a 1 day course (thru Sur La Table or other schools), and maybe browse on the interweb for future classes/school in Zurich.
I hope I didn't make you hungry!
