My Black & White Cookies

Thursday, January 7, 2010

You may be thinking that this does not look exactly like the Black & White Cookie you just bought at the deli/bakery/bagel shop. You are right. I’ve changed this long time classic.

You see, I made classic Black & White Cookies from Carole Walter’s Great Cookies book. These big waist busting beauties were very good. I love the lemon oil that brightens and lightens the simplicity of vanilla and chocolate. But, the best part is the middle. I tend to like the thicker parts and not the thinner edges. I like that these are cakey cookies.

Fancy Crab Fried Rice

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

There are so many versions of fried rice. I’m not even going to try and guess how many there are. Yet, what makes it a fried rice? My mom once told me that the very basic Chinese version is just scallion, egg, and rice. That’s all you need for fried rice and any other additions are your choice.

ABC Scrambled Eggs

Sunday, January 3, 2010

When I was in Taiwan (a long long time ago), I’d start speaking to a vendor, and they’d immediately say, “ABC”, nod, and go on with their answer to whatever my question was. It was a little odd that everyone wanted to clearly acknowledge and label me as an American Born Chinese. It was obvious from my accent, or long hair (school girls are not allowed to have hair past shoulder length), or being XXL by their standards (which is a size 2 in the US).

Pancake Inspired Cupcakes: Banana Nut

Tuesday, December 29, 2009

One of my favorite childhood memories was going to IHOP (International House of Pancakes) with my family. My mom and I both loved Banana Nut Pancakes (which I don’t see on their menu anymore these days but you can ask for it). For some reason, as a 6 year-old, I thought I was cooler than my brother, just for the sheer reason that I had the same favorite pancakes as my mom. I would share a giant stack with my mom, smiling all the way through the meal, because I just knew my mom liked me more. Yup, purely because my brother would order something else.

Winter Fruit Tart

Sunday, December 20, 2009

Are you busy but love to entertain? Do you have last minute guests popping in? Do you just like to make everything ahead of time? Do you just love easy desserts? (Do you like to ask questions?) I am so excited to share this dessert if any of those apply to you.

Double Chocolate Truffle Cupcakes

Friday, November 20, 2009

It was another day for experimenting, and again, things did not come out quite as expected, but just like the Cloud Topped Pumpkin Loaf (which I hope to be famous for one day), these cupcakes were a hit, and will remain in my repertoire.

Cloud Topped Pumpkin Loaf

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

I’m so excited to tell you about my Cloud Topped Pumpkin Loaf. I think I may have come up with a totally new dessert! But I guess I have to admit that this all happened by accident. It’s all because I completely messed up the idea I had, failed horribly, total embarrassment to bakers. I hope none of my old pastry instructors read this blog.

Mini Refugiado: Guava Cheese Pastry

Thursday, November 5, 2009

One of our favorite stops in Los Angeles was Porto’s Bakery. Everything was fresh and delicious at shockingly low prices. I’m dreaming about them expanding to New York one day but I know that’s a long shot so I may have to recreate some of their treats for myself. One of the pastries we enjoyed was a flaky and buttery pastry with a guava and cream cheese filling. They called it the Refugiado, but I’m not sure why it’s called the Refugee. (Hey Latino friends, holla if you know. ) Those layer-y doughs are a lot of work for home bakers and so is the idea of getting fresh guava to make a jam or preserve for yourself. Don’t worry, I came up with an easier alternative.

Blackberry Oatmeal Cookie Muffins

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

When I made the Cherry Almond Cookie Pies, JP asked if I could make a version without nuts for his nephew. Well, since JP is partially responsible for how Lon and I met, the least I could do was design a recipe for him. See JP was one of the first people I met in college, the second person on the first day of school, to be exact. Fast forward to after graduation, JP works with a cool gal named Resa. Resa is Kasi’s bestfriend. Kasi is Lon’s sister. Got it?
