Have you ever thought, that there is a chocolate? After making these delicious little Chocolate Budinos, I am now convince that there is such a place.
I have made these tasty desserts many times in the past, while my wife was still alive and for my grandchildren many times over. They're very simple to make and very addictive as well.
For those not familiar, Budino is simply put-pudding- to be served in a glass, ramekin or unmolded for a little more show.
Budino is a sweet Italian dish, usually rich and c... read more »
Egg rolls are delightful and delicious for appetizers, but what about desserts? Also, do they really have to be oriental? To me, egg rolls can be filled with whatever your heart desires, and I desire something sweet and unusual. Like I always tell my friends and colleagues, I am not your every day normal chef. I have the tendency to be more of the abnormal out-of-the-box kind of chef, thinking of new ways to bring to the table, exciting and unusual ideas for the palate.
Today's recipe, brings together Fr... read more »
Is this a cake or is it just a novelty dessert? It really depends on how you look at it really, for to me it is both.
This can be a fun project, for the kids, grandkids as well as a holiday or birthday cake. It is quite simple and it allows much imagination as to what you can add to it.

Lost Cheesecake Recipe Found!
The other day, I was going thru my recipe files and I came upon a recipe for a Cheesecake. Now, knowing my history, I have a very strong weakness for cheesecakes. How I overlooked this recipe is beyond me, but I was even more surprised to find a photo of the cheesecake as well. But what bothers me, is that I don't even remember making it. Guess the old age is creeping up on me.

the kouign amann at Brasserie Cicou
I was meaning to post this for Valentines. But since I'm such a slowpoke when it comes to writing articles for this online diary, plus inspiration to write a romantic post was sorta, kinda hard to find (surprise! surprise!) so this will serve as my first post for the month of March. And I'm not gonna try to make this a (to quote a phrase from that 90's hit TV show Ally McBeal) "sappy-sappy-puke-sappy" narration because to tell you honestly, it isn't gonna work. Nuh uh... read more »
Thanks to Michelle (pictured here) and Lyle for opening their home and supplying the BINGO cards and Ballot Sheets for tonights festivities. I think there were close to 30 people there and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. There was plenty of wine and other liquids for everyone to enjoy. Here are some photos of  read more »

Being food bloggers, we're always excitedwhen it comes to new food trends! And here's something we've been wanting to sink our teeth into: Pisang Goreng Cheese!
This box of cheese-topped fried bananas, however, only arrived at our table close to an hour after we'd ordered. Needless to say, that gave ample time for our initial excitement to dissipate into full-on annoyance.
So basically, the stall (located behind Giant i-City, Shah Alam)... read more »
