Pinterest Pick: VII

Hello Everyone!

Done editing a video tutorial on nail art and removing glitters! I’m gonna spam my blog for now about my pinterest picks for the day. We’re just two weeks aways before September arrives and the whole town would be covered with Christmas Decors. It would be exciting to wander around the malls and streets at night seeing the beautiful christmas lights and listening to christmas songs.. oops, been talking a lot about christmas, sorry! Fall and winter fashion are slowly emerging on pinterest which only means Christmas Season is almost here. Meanwhile, enjoy my pinterest pics for today! (and the kimchi I cooked)

Let’s eat Ramen – My favorite snack!

Who loves ramen?! Yup, I do! I know it’s like eating a whole bunch of chillies, but still, ramen is tasty, yummy and delicious! i love Ramen, it’s my favorite snack. I love eating it though it’s hot and spicy!. *oosh*. Well, it actually depends on the brand of ramen and the amount of seasoning you add unto it. If you haven’t tried it, I suggest you should! You might not like it at first,but as you keep on eating it you’re gonna like it for sure.^^.  I’m neither Chinese nor Japanese so eating ramen’s also my one way of practicing in handling chopsticks (which i’m already expert at!)

 

Here’s a little tidbits about ramen from wikipedia:

Ramen (ラーメン, rāmen?, IPA: ˈrä-mən) is a Japanese noodle dish. It consists of Chinese-style wheat noodles served in a meat- or fish-based broth, often flavored with soy sauce or miso, and uses toppings such as sliced pork (チャーシュー, chāshū?), dried seaweed (海苔, nori?), kamaboko, green onions, and occasionally corn. Almost every locality in Japan has its own variation of ramen, from the tonkotsu (pork bone broth) ramen of Kyūshū to the miso ramen of Hokkaidō.

 

I ate my ramen with a spam, egg or luncheon meat. Either way, it’s still yummy^^

boiling ramen,...mmmm, yum!

Let’s eat Pasta Garlic with Shrimps and Broccoli

Hello everyone! So aside from Nail Art, cooking is one of my passion. I love to Cook and I love to bake.  I do cook everyday and i sometimes cook special foods when I fell like cooking something (like pasta or recipes I can find on internet). Recently, i’ve been craving to eat pasta but not the ordinary ones we usually cook e.g. spaghetti and Carbonara. So I spent a little time searching for another pasta recipe and I found “Pasta Garlic with Shrimps and Broccoli” from wmn.ph The website features everything about style, style, food, celebrities, etc. It’s a site all about women^_^  It’s actually one of my fave recipe sites coz they not only provide recipes they also show demonstrations on how to cook the food. It’s owned by one of the local channels here and they mostly feature international dishes with a little Filipino touch.^_^

 

Below is the original recipe which I recommend you make especially winter season is here! (in your place). I found about this recipe like a month ago and been cooking it almost every week. My family and friends loved it so I guess you’ll love it too!

200 grams linguini, cooked
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup white shrimp
1/4 cup broccoli, blanched
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon all-purpose flour (i suggest you make it to 1 tablespoon)
1/3 cup Carnation Evap
2 tablespoons cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Parsley, chopped for garnish

Directions:
1. In a saute pan, heat oil and butter.
2. Add the shrimp. Saute for a minute then add the broccoli.
3. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant.
4. Add the flour. Gradually stir in Carnation Evap and cream.
5. Season with salt and pepper.

7. Serve on a pasta plate. Garnish with chopped parsley.

Aside from the ingredients mentioned above you can also try doing it with corns, mushrooms and ham.

PASTA GARLIC WITH SHRIMPS

First time cooking the recipe and didn't like it that much. You need to add more flour to make it thicker.

Let’s have Merienda.

Leche Flan - i ate the other half^_^

Let’s have merienda! (snaacks in english)

My sister baked this yummy and so sweet leche flan yesterday.  We got a dozen extra eggs that wouldn’t fit in our fridge so we made them into a healthy dessert or snack.  This is easy and simple to make if you know how to separate the egg yolk. In my case, I broke two egg yolk’s not yet separated with the egg white. ^_^  Its ingredients are only egg, sugar, vanilla and condensed milk.  We were able to bake 2 heart-shaped leche flan. I recommend you to try this delicious meal^_^

Here’s the recipe if you want to make this.

heart-shaped leche flan (those are sugar syrup on top)

LECHE FLAN RECIPE

  • 1 can (390g) evaporated milk
  • 1 can (390g) condensed milk
  • 10 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or lemon essence

For the caramel:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup water

Leche Flan Cooking Instructions:

  • In a saucepan, mix the sugar & water. Bring to a boil for a few minutes until the sugar caramelize.
  • Pour the caramelized sugar into aluminum moulds – you can use any shape: oval, round or square. Spread the caramel on the bottom of the moulds.
  • Mix well the evaporated milk, condensed milk, egg yolks and vanilla by hand or blender.
  • Gently pour the mixture on top of the caramel on the aluminum moulds. Fill the moulds to about 1 to  1 1/4 inch thick.
  • Cover moulds individually with aluminum foil.
  • Steam for about 20 minutes (the traditional way to make Leche Flan is by open-air steaming on either an open cooking fire or stove top) OR
  • Bake for about 45 minutes. Before baking the Leche Flan, place the moulds on a larger baking pan half filled with very hot water. Pre-heat oven to about 370 degrees before baking.
  • Let cool then refrigerate.
  • To serve: run a thin knife around the edges of the mould to loosen the Leche Flan. Place a platter on top of the mould and quickly turn upside down to position the golden brown caramel on top.

Cooking Tips:

  • You can tell when the Leche Flan is cooked by inserting a knife -if it comes out clean, it is cooked.
