Paris Baguette

Yum, stopped by Soho, Paris Baguette in Hmart yesterday. Soho has the best bon chon chicken, if you have not tried them yet, they are korean fried chicken wings that are extra crispy. The flavor is similar to a toned down general tso chicken. It’s a little sweet, tangy, garlic – y and spicy if you get the spicy kind. I also picked up some goodies from Paris Baguette, love their pastries and sweets. Most of the stuff I get are always light in flavor and texture and not extremely sweet, which I love. Here are some photos of the macarons, red velvet cupcake and cronut. The cronut isn’t the same as the original, it has more of a lemon kick to it but it’s still good. Thanks for reading, I would love for you to enjoy these goodies with me 🙂

Mother’s Day!

Happy late Mother’s Day to all the beautiful, strong, wonder women out there lols. For Mother’s day, my siblings and close friend and I threw a little bbq for my mom. I didn’t have time to fully decorate the way I planned or make macarons but we got the important dishes: clams, steaks, chicken kabobs, sangria and last but not least roasted marshmallow! Although it was chilly and breezy we had a great time with great people and great food. I hope everyone enjoyed their Mother’s Day. Thanks for reading! 😉

Hello, it was so beautiful out today. While I was trying to decide on what to do, I decided to do this look, however I didn’t get the photo until it was dark. Also, I spent friday night and this morning at my sister’s place and we had crazy snacks and she made us breakfast! 😉

Cooking!

Hello, so I love cooking and trying to make things from scratch. I haven’t tried making breads yet, but I will definitely get to that when I get the chance. So, this week I made salted caramel pudding and decided I would try to turn it into “ice cream”. Well, it turned out pretty good. I used a basic homemade vanilla pudding recipe with eggs, I know some people don’t use eggs, and I added my homemade salted caramel to get the salted caramel pudding. Then I just mixed in some heavy cream the next day and put it in the freezer. I took it out about 3 hours later to mix some air into it and put it back to freeze over night and it turned out pretty good, but really creamy. As for specific measurements, I’m sorry I don’t have it because I usually eyeball things but basically use any of your favorite pudding recipe, add as much caramel to your tasting then put in cream (a little less than half of your pudding) I believe. Today, I made sliders for my little brother, I promised I didn’t eat any even though I was tempted. I went to the gym, came home and made tomorrow lunch, just grilled chicken, brown rice and a side of salad with raspberry vinaigrette. YUM! Thanks for reading!

Weekend Feast

Hello loves. So I literally just ate and ate all weekend. Saturday night, I went to a birthday party and had asian “party food,” which are basically the usual food serve at asian restaurants when you throw a party there. On Monday night, my friends and I went out to Del Frisco Eagle Steakhouse for my cousin’s birthday and Philly’s Restaurant Week. It was definitely worth it, the steak and sides were delicious! Probably our best Restaurant Week choice. I was so stuffed! Today, it was getting  a little warm out, so I wanted some ice cream and decided to go to Franklin Fountain to try out their ice creams mainly because it looked cute lols. It’s an old fashion ice cream place that hand makes their ice cream fresh. It was so good and the ambiance was great. I love the old fashion vintage style, especially the vintage cash register and the ice cream was so good! I definitely would love to go back especially during summer to sit outside and try the many different tasty flavors! Next, one of my cousin’s friend wanted to go out to eat for my cousin’s birthday. I was already too full by then, but we stopped in to COPA on South Street and got the unlimited taco tuesday, jerk chicken turkey burger, bacon and cheddar burger and spanish fries. Everything tasted great, espeically the jerk chicken burger. We were sooo stuffed and trying to force ourselves to take advantage of the unlimited tacos. Alrighty, thanks for reading, have a good night!

Macarons driving me crazy

Image

Ever since I discovered macarons, I’ve been obsessed and ever since I’ve tried to bake them myself I’ve been obsessed over getting it right. Im the type of person to like to make things myself. If I see something I like, I usually llike to try and replicate it myself at home because one it saves money and two just because Im a hands on person. Idk. So like I mentioned yesterday I wanted to test out my new mixer and make some macarons and I did. The mixer did an okay job, but it’s not the best. I noticed it only mixes to the side so I had to keep stopping it and scrape everything to one side so that it can mix it better. I also bought these air bake trays from Target and they were okay I thikn itll be better if I get the other brands from I forget where but it cost more so probably works better. The one from target wasn’t really leveled so my cookies werent rising evenly most were tilting. Anyways, I gotta say this is my best one yet. I still have to work on it and it’s a work in progress, but Im so proud that I used the french meringue method and manage to make it actually look like macarons lols. Just wanted to share it. Also this morning I picked up some bagels from Manhattan bagels for the house. Theyre my favorite bagels and the cream cheese are so good especially the honey almond. I’m in love with it, it would go great with some wine ;). Alrighty thanks for reading!

Morning!

Hello, I had my mind set on getting back on track with my healthy life style and weight loss, but I couldn’t help it, they had macarons at work ;(. Tomorrow, for sure..lols. I also got an iced chai latte with skim milk yum. I also skipped the gym because I picked up some more wii games today and ended up staying in and playing most of it with my baby brother, I am loving Mario Kart. I’ve always loved Super mario bros. Earlier, I was craving green tea latte, so I just made a so called latte art for fun lols. Alrighty, thanks for reading!

Macaron Challenge

Hello, whoever has tried making Parisian macarons know that  it’s not a piece of cake ;). Well, for some, maybe, but if you’re not a baker, you might not do so well. I don’t like baking like that because it’s too precise, I like to eyeball. I’ve been trying out many different recipes trying to perfect my macarons, even the italian meringue method is much more easier because it’s harder to mess up, however I just get too nervous because I think I’ll mess up the sugar syrup stage involving a candy thermometer. Anywho, this is my third attempt. I did improve and I used the french meringue method, which I dread because it’s so easy to mess up. However, I still have to work on it because the “feet” isn’t perfect, but they always taste great. I decided to make pumpkin spice with lemon butter cream and pumpkin spice. The rest of the photos are from the rest of the other days of food and desserts I made and my dinner date with my cousin down town Philly and lastly my cutie pie Princess, she loves sleeping under the Christmas tree (and yes, I still haven’t taken it down yet lols). Alrighty, thanks for reading, good night!

Fotd & Fotn

Hey, one more day until New Year’s Eve! I’m not sure what I want to do yet, most likely just watch fireworks. I’m still trying to decide what kind of look I want to do tomorrow. I know when people think of New Year’s makeup, they think of glitter, so I may play with some glitter but I kinda want to do something different. We’ll see. Anyways just wanted to share my look of the day and night with you. For my day time look I decided to go for a more “natural” look, and only wore liner on my the top line of my eyes, mascara and smudged a little brown on the bottom and white on the inner tear duct area. For my night time look, I decided to add on to what I had on already by putting on falsies (red cherry #82) and  I lined the bottom water line only smudged on a copper brown on my bottom line. I put on sugar’s lip tint, but it looks red in the photo. And also, a meal I threw together just some stir fry egg plants with rice noodles and topped with eggs. Thanks for reading!
