Homemade breakfast options – hard choice to choose from American or Asian style?



How about some soft pretzels for breakfast this morning? 3choices: sesame, salted and cheese.

Got up early to make avocado toast with poached egg, something different other than cereal or plain old bread. Something simple like this will cost an arm and a leg at a restaurant. IMG_E1435

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

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

If the boys had the choice, they’d probably chow down a box of cereals every morning, because it’s the easiest. On weekends, I would show the boys make simple breakfast. Today, they learned how to make omelette with bell peppers, bacon and onions. Ah Lo decided to add some ground peppers because he knows best.breakfastcooking

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.


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
