This is a by-product from the cheesecake. The egg white left from the baking is required in this butter twist recipe. While the cheesecake was in the oven, I make those buttery twist. They are cute in shape, but not satisfy my taste. I didn't mean they are bad, but for me they lack the depth in flavor. Simply buttery and sweet is less than enough for me.

This cake was baked because my friend can't eat chocolate. For me, dessert without chocolate is impossible. So I had to search Internet and find something doable. Luckily, my friend does love cheesecake, so I came across this recipe and believe it's the perfect fit. The picture on the site caught my eyes first and I hope to have my cake as pretty as it. However, you can see the picture here, not pretty at all, even messy. But the taste is good. I did twist a bit to use a tart crust rather than the graham cracker bottom.

Even though biscotti is not quite my kind of food, this recipe looks interesting enough to try. The baked biscotti has the crunch texture because of the cornmeal. Not like most biscotti made entirely by flour, the cornmeal does make it crispy but not too hard to bite. The lime gives a fresh taste which I like a lot. My only complain about this recipe is that I can definitely taste the baking soda. Next time I might try to use egg white as the leavening.

I have been cooking this dish a lot recently. It's simple and quick to make. A time saver without sacrificing the taste. The bean noodle is available from most Asian markets. All I need to do is to stir-fry the ground pork until it releases the juice. Then, add the soaked noodle with broth, soysauce, sugar and chili flakes into the pot mixing together with the ground meat. The noodle will continue absorbing the liquid until done. To finalize the dish, sprinkle some green onion on the top to garnish.
This is the cake I baked for the 4th of July hiking. Regardless the taste, the house smells sweet like maple while the cake was baked in the oven. The cake recipe is from here. Though it says this is a pound cake, the texture isn't. And if you read the recipe, the oil was added in the last and mixed in a non-typical way, which results the separate of oil and cake batter. The taste is not bad though.
