Keep Calm & Bake Macarons

12 Nov 2015 | Seoul, South Korea —

The first time I had macarons was way back in February 2012. I tried them at a well-known, yet overrated dessert shop in Davao, right after Danny and I had dinner. They had bright yellow, orange and green colors, which are very unlikely used by other bakeries. Since then, I developed a love for this delicate pastry, though I haven’t tasted the perfect one ever yet.

Sweetened Condensed Soy Milk

It has been a while since I published a post since I am now back in America.  I am excited to share my sweetened condensed soy milk recipe.  It can be used in any recipe in place of the canned/bottled condensed milk such as my Thai Iced Tea recipe or even a tres leches cake!  You can control the sweetness, which is what I really appreciate about making my own.  I hope you give it a try :-)

Korean Sweet Rice Cake ‘Samoas’

Korean sweet rice cakes (gyungdan) are traditionally filled with red bean paste and coated in different grain or bean powders.  I created this rice cake recipe by chance when I was experimenting with different fillings and coatings and wound up with one that tastes like the famous ‘samoas’ girl scout cookie!  However, they are much healthier.  There are many types of Korean rice cakes, but this one is the easiest as it does not require ‘pounding’ with a pestle.  You simply make the 4-ingredient dough and boil the rice cake balls.  This particular version is filled with Nutella and coated with toasted coconut…yum!  Feel free to create your own unique variations.
