Funnel Cake & Cultural Differences 😂

My #Chinese student said #funnelcakes looks like chicken feet 😂😂😂😂

Distracted #Cooking!

13 Aug

Lol 😛 Decided to make my mom a treat the other day – #NoBake Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies.

To be fair to myself, I was also baking #stuffedpeppers, answering student messages, and finishing a major project for my MSc.

anyway, I was already experimenting a bit. No #butter, so I tried #CoconutOil. No #PeanutButter, so I made my own.

Got to taste them and mom’s like ‘these don’t taste right. . . ‘

Me: ‘Better term – They taste #disgusting 😱

Us: Why 🤔

Mom: Did you #cook them to a high enough temperature?🙂

Me: ❓❓❓ They don’t cook, they’re #nobake.

Mom: 😳🙄

Me: Wait. . . . ‘checks recipe’ Well *&%$.

Hahahaha! They were supposed to be boiled, and I didn’t cook them at all. No wonder they were #terrible #spititout

#Baking in China – Apple Pie!

​Viola! I make a mean #ApplePie if I say so myself. Little more difficult to do in #China; but still. . . . came out delicious!   People at work appreciate it 😜

#Foodie! Stewed Iron Eggs

29 May

​Stewed Iron Eggs – everypne’s favorite food! It even comes #SPICED! As my ESL students say – ‘have a try!’

Notice the star #anise on the picture (tastes like licorice – often poisonous here in #China since the legit anise stars go to theraflu factories).  Can only imagine that added to stewed egg flavor!

Going a Little #Nuts Today!

10 Apr

Hmmmmmm.  I ❤this brand of nuts from #China. They are probably the best almonds, pistachios, etc. I’ve ever had.  

But ‘CRAB ROE’ and ‘BROAD BEANS-beef’ flavored?. . . . I’m gonna have to think about that for a minutes
