Recipe 1-cauliflower with carne molida and oaxaca cheese
Recipe#2 – my first ever cheesecake
Mistakes: (hubby tells me i always watch cooking videos but end up fucking up because of my innate need to experiment, a quality that I got from my mother.)
Overdid the crust using an entire 1/2 quarter cup of butter, should have used only 3 tablespoons.
Overdid the eggs too, used 3 instead of just 2.
After it was out it tasted like flan but now that its refrigerated, it turned out fuckin delicious.
Panko breading is everything.
Batter: 2eggs + greek yogurt
Breading: pepper, garlic powder, cotija cheese, panko breadcrumbs
Came out really nice and crunchy. Hubby is silent but almost finished it.
280 degrees/ 20 mins + 5 mins on broil
Reason for making this is cos im so annoyed at how overpriced they sell for at the Filipino bakery. A pair of suman sells for 2.50 as opposed to less then 10 bucks all in all to buy the ingredients.
What I used:
Step 3: enjoy it warm and steamy after its cooked for an hour. My mothers creation is still the best
My first time to make my native Philippine snack!
Its a rootcrop sweetened with raw cane sugar and grated coconut mixed altogether, wrapped in banana leaves and steamed for 45 mins. My mother makes the best suman ever.
Step 1- combine all this madness in a wide bowl add sugar to your liking
Step 2: The tedious part is wrapping each handful to the banana leaf.
Star of the show: cauliflower cotija and oaxaca casserole, just my fancy way of saying cauliflower mac and cheese hahaha
2 lbs carne molida
Broil for 30mins + bake for an additional 20 mins.
What could have been done:
To put almond flour next time as the beatiful embotido is breaking apart when it cooks. But the taste is absolutely on point.
Cranky as fuck i wanted to eat out as soon as we got off work. Was silently seething when hubby didnt make a right turn to my fave thai place.
Then it dawned on me that the positives outweigh the unhealthy thinking in my head:
1. Saved bout 50 bucks from not eating out
2. Nourishing and controlled food at home
3. Cooking still is the best.
Yeah its way better.
Breakfast smoothie today was a big ass ripe avocado with a cup of baby spinach and blueberries. Ninja had a little trouble blending it for several reasons
1. Not enough liquid (sorry machine)
2. Shouldve chosen the smaller cup for this.
Anyway, the output was still a beautiful creamy dream of REAL avocado and greens. You cant compete that in thosr overly sweetened ones bought at a boba shop for about 4-5 bucks a pop. What a beautiful meal
