I am going to share with you today my favorite sweets in the entire world, it's red bean ice cream. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I had to eat a red bean ice cream bar every single day. I love any sweets with red bean and since summer's here, I want to share my favorite dessert ingredient in it's very best form with you.
It's been a warm June in the bay area so the weather is perfect for experimenting with different flavors of ice creams and sorbets. I always loved the unique taste of lychee so when I found this recipe I knew I had to try it. The result was super delicious and perfect for cleaning the palate after a greasy meal.
My family loves the mango sorbet and ice bar from Trader Joe's. Unfortunately they are often out of stock and we come back disappointed. Armed with the new ice cream maker, we can now enjoy fresh mango ice cream whenever we want. The result is super rich and tasty, surprise your guests with some homemade mango ice cream this summer!
My children love fresh cherries and we had quite a bit extra from our cherry picking trip. What to do with delicious fresh cherries? I tried this easy cherry clafoutis recipe and had my little helpers assist me. The result was super yummy. Try this recipe while cherries are still in season.
One of my favorite part of the late spring early summer season is the abundance of fresh fruits. As most of you know I am not much of a baker but the recipe I am about to share is super easy and simple.... that even I can do it. Cheers!
One of the most popular desserts all over Asia is Crème Caramel, aka purin, pudding, or flan. You can find them in most restaurants, bakeries, or local convenience stores. It's definitely my husband's top 3 favorite dessert of all time. The flan recipe I am sharing is very simple and does not require baking. With just a little bit of patience you can enjoy these purin in less than 1 hour.
My favorite part about going to Chinese restaurants is the complimentary dessert soups they serve at the end of the meal. I love sweets and it's definitely one of my weakness. Among all the dessert soups, my two favorites are red bean and taro tapioca. I was so excited to find this recipe and share with my reader. Enjoy.
I am not much of a baker for someone who spends quite a bit of time in the kitchen. Maybe it's because most bakeries in Japan are simply amazing so we don't try to make too many dessert at home. There's a bakery near my house in Yokohama where the fresh cream taste just like heaven. When my friend Ellena asked me if I knew how to make Japanese steamed bread (Mushi Pan), I went to search for a recipe that looked yummy. After the snack judges in the house (my two children) approved, I am happy to share this recipe.
Today's recipe is crepes. I'm sure everyone LOOOVES crepes. These days I'm always staying up late to work on my blog and so has my new foodie friend, Suzana from Firefly Blog. She has been "torturing" me by posting delicious meals at night, more precisely she posts them past midnight when I'm really really hungry! One of her recent recipes was Crepes with Peanut Butter and Banana. Crepes are my favorite and I had to try!
