Grape Cheesecake

9 Jan

New Taste Testing!

My student brought me some grape cheesecakes πŸ˜ƒπŸ°πŸ‡πŸ€”

Tried them today and its. . . very grapey? If that makes sense? Tastes like a combination of cheesecake with dimeatapp / grape soda if that makes sense? Not bad really! Very sweet though πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ.

Walnuts For Sale!

13 Dec

Did you know when you buy walnuts, you should shake each one first? If it rattles, it’s dried and you should put it back! Find the ones that don’t shake πŸ˜ƒ

*I know this because I was,shopping like an uncouth wild thing just picking up a handful and a Chinese nai nai shook her head in a tsk-tsk manner and started teaching me the proper way 😊

Durian fruit! Smells and tastes disgusting, but I like the poky things. It’s like the porcupine of fruit πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

New Treats!

24 Nov

My student brought these today! They are a weird taste combination between sweet (sugary) and fritos? If that makes sense? πŸ€”
It’s like a healthy cookie texture + fritos flavoring? I dunno πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ But yummy!!!

Taste Buds Beware!

#Confession – Most of my phone gallery are pictures of random Chinese things I need to translate to save myself. E.g. to know the difference between microspicy and ‘it’s too spicy’ πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

What’s your go to snack?

#Chinese c-store treats include corn on the cob and tea soaked duck eggs. πŸ˜ƒ It’s funny to me how concepts of what constitutes a ‘treat’ changes culture to culture.

Distracted #Cooking!

13 Aug

Lol πŸ˜› 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 πŸ€”

Mom: Did you #cook them to a high enough temperature?πŸ™‚

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

Mom: πŸ˜³πŸ™„

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
