My 2nd attempt in making the green onion buns, 1st one lacked the flavor, so I thought to give it another shot. This one was a bit saltier than normal. Will do it again, hopefully third time’s a charm!IMG_9924

My sister gave me a couple loaves of day old bread. They’re hard as a baseball bat. Of course there are other recipes out there for stale old bread. I decided to make bread chips as snacks for the boys. It was a big hit since half of it was gone when when it came out of the oven. IMG_9863IMG_9868IMG_9872With the other loaf of bread, I made croutons with it.

Love love love green onion buns, so meaning to try baking it myself. This batch lacked the green onion flavor. I knew I didn’t have green onions to begin with, but too lazy to get more, so I ended up using whatever I had. I will try again!IMG_9839Boys don’t seem to mind it (they’re not big fans of green onions). IMG_9850

Fresh baked bread right out of the oven. Mr. Piggy was hovering my shoulders this morning waiting for this to come out of the oven. I had to tease him a bit when I took my lovely time to snap a few pictures. These were all gone in one sitting. Not enough to go around for another day.IMG_9748IMG_9751

These past few days have been record high in the city, almost to the point it was unbearable. And of course, I had to pick this time to bake. I was thinking to take advantage of the heat for getting the dough to rise quicker. It sure did, but that was when I realized I had to put them in the oven. Yikes! The entire kitchen got even warmer. At least the boys had fresh bread for breakfast!UntitledUntitled2Untitled3

I’ve always loved lemon poppyseed pound cakes. That’s the first thing I’d go for if I see it in a platter of pastries. I think it’s about time I learn how to bake it. My food critics gave it a thumbs up while enjoying it for breakfast.   IMG_9624

Now that the boys are off to camp, I have all the time in the world! What to do? Baking bread of course! Garlic and cheese bread…Love the smell of fresh baked bread.

Had some middle school friends over today and cooked up a storm. There’s always endless topics to talk about with this group of friends. So when we go out, we always get kicked out before we can all share our stories. That’s why we decided to have it in one of our homes so we can talk/laugh without anyone constantly coming over asking if we wanted anything else. *wink* IMG_8695

It was supposed to be potluck, but somehow I did most of the cooking. One friend brought small pot of tofu soup, one brought drinks, one brought fruits, and my sister brought chicken wings and garlic enoki mushrooms.

For me, I made some rose dumplings, mini mango tart, egg leaf salad, japchae and green onion pancakes. My friends have been wanting to try my homemade bread, so it’s right there on the table! Since it’s an Asian themed brunch, I made name cards using each person’s chinese name.

Breakfast I made this weekend for Ah Lo and myself (Mr. Piggy is not a big fan of porridge). Oh well, more for us!IMG_8647Baked some fresh bread on Saturday morning to load up Ah Lo with carbs for his triathlon.IMG_8602

 

Always happy to get some ripe bananas from the inlaws. I had to snatch it from them before the bananas go to compost! This is what I did with them. One of the boys’ favorite breakfast.IMG_8279
