A couple of weeks ago, my little sister climbed one of our kitchen shelves and accidentally knocked over a jar of oatmeal. Instead of throwing it out, I decided to make dog treats instead (since my dogs started eating the oats on the floor like there’s no tomorrow.) I found this easy recipe from this website and tried it out.
That’s a lot of oatmeal.
The recipe calls for rolled oats, salt, egg, and beef broth or chicken broth. After I combined them all in a bowl, I found this bear-shaped ice tray (only because I don’t have cookie cutters at the moment) and filled it in with the mix.
I placed all the oat treats on a baking tray and popped it in the oven at around 325 degrees.
“Cookies” because it was originally a recipe for cookies – but then…well, you’ll see why by the end of this post.
So, just like last time, I was inspired by a YouTube video to bake! I was craving for some cookies and ended up doing Gemma Stafford’s 3-Ingredient Cookie recipe! Assessing the ingredients I have in the kitchen, I decided to make some peanut butter cookies. The recipe is very simple, and as the title suggests, it only requires three ingredients!
Unfortunately, I lacked peanut butter and decided to substitute half of it with Nutella. I combined one cup of peanut butter + Nutella, 1 cup of white sugar, and 1 egg into a bowl and combined them all together (1:1:1 ratio).
Afterward, I prepared a “cookie sheet” and asked my 6-year old sister to drop the cookies on top.
I literally turned away for a minute or so and my sister poured the batter on the cookie sheet – thus, it became a brownie.
See? Oh well, ha-ha!
I did the best I could and cut it into little pieces, but no one believes me when I said that it really cookies.
It surprisingly tasted really good! I would recommend this to anyone who wants to make a quick treat to satisfy their cravings.
Honey hotteok (pronounced ‘ho-tok’) is something like a “Korean filled pancake bread” and is a popular Korean street food. It got me curious – I’ve never tried to make any Korean food yet, so why not try something new? (Plus the fact that I won’t be using an oven?) The best part is that the ingredients aren’t too difficult to attain (also, I didn’t need to go to the supermarket for this recipe since I had everything I needed at home)!
Here are the ingredients:
For the dough: Bread flour 400g, Dry Yeast 6g, Salt 6g,
Sugar 45g, Milk 240g, 1 Egg, Butter 60g
For the filling:
Honey 60g, Brown sugar 100g, Water 100g,
Corn starch 20g, Cinnamon Powder 1/4 tsp
Salt 1/4 tsp
Sophie Makes: Milk Tea
Sophie TRIED to Make Milk Tea but Failed.
I think after my success with my Chocolate Chip Melon Pans, I got a little too excited or cocky. I had some black tea leaves in my room and decided to try to make my own milk tea.
The recipe is from Peaceful Cuisine (again):
[Side note: I’m sure his milk tea turned out great because of his skill and ingredients HAHA!]
Ingredients: (2 servings)
– 30g black tapioca pearl (in the end, I chose not to add in pearls anymore)
– 300g water
– 10g black tea leaves (I used CREAM of Earl Grey instead – bad move)
– 300g soy milk (I used full cream milk instead)
– 30 – 60g maple syrup (I added in white sugar, brown sugar, and condensed milk instead) Instructions:
1. Soak black tapioca pearls overnight. (I skipped this.)
2. Boil black tea leaves for 1 – 2 minutes.
3. Add in soy milk and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat when it brings to a boil again.
4. Boil black tapioca pearls for 1 – 2 minutes.
5. Let them cool then pour together into your cup.
Of course, I didn’t have the time and the exact ingredients, so I improvised.
