To prevent overloading of this page with photos, I'll do them in series.
The first part of the series will be what I did over winter break, after the donuts that I wrote about in the last post.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (repeat)
|These never last long...|
Fruit Tart (wheat+walnut crust, pastry cream, fresh fruit, apricot glaze)
|Homemade pastry cream: egg yolks, almond milk, sugar, vanilla|
|Drizzled with Dove dark chocolate ganache|
Pandan Mini Baked Donuts
|Light cakes, perfect without icing, probably enhanced with coconut frosting|
Mango Peach Jam Cake
|From my Diabetic Cooking Cookbook, my favorite cookbook even though I'm not diabetic!|
|Organic mango peach jam layers the middle|
|Healthy, perfect breakfast or snack cake, and uses flaxmeal for egg|
That's what I'll tease you all with for now. Lots more to come, including full-fledged meals with meat! Look, ma, I cooked!
By the way, it's been pouring nonstop here in Berkeley. Man! It's crazy weather!!! There may be a couple minutes here and there where it stops, but then it starts up again like a shower in the sky. Poor E-Week events were dampened (pardon the pun) by the rain. No ultimate frisbee competition, but the carnival is still going on in Hearst Mining, which looked so fun. Too bad I have work (right now, poo) and can't go to it.
Wow, 2 more months and then I graduate!!! I've already selected to go to Texas A&M, College Station, to do my PhD in Biomedical Engineering, starting Fall 2012. So excited! I'm already planning how I'm getting groceries, where I'm living, places I want to eat and try, and dreaming of opening and managing a Trader Joe's while I'm doing my 5-6 year PhD there. Haha, crazy weather makes a crazy mind. Change is about, my friends, and the future shall bring to us its mysteries!!!
