Milk Shake Part 2

When I began to tell people about the milkshake I saw and wanted to try, people kept giving me dirty looks and you could sense the doubt in their minds.

So the milk shake was tested with some friends and it was a success. Chocolate chips were used instead of the shavings…..stay with the shavings. The chocolate chips, even after being blended, still sank to the bottom of the cup. Also, we used 2% milk instead of whole milk.

Overall it was crazy easy to make and a huge success.

All the best,

Milk Shakes

Who doesn’t like milk shakes?!

I was watching food networks this morning and they had this coffee doughnut was crazy easy to make and looked amazing…it is definitely a must try.

This is how it was made….

Put coffee ice cream and half the amount of milk that you did ice cream in a blender.  After initial blend add semi-chocoalate shavings and crumbled up old fashioned glazed doughnuts.  Blend one more time. After blending is complete add to cup and put some doughnut on the cup as garnish.

Will follow up after testing!

All the best,

Some people eat to live….I live to eat!

First of all I would like to thank Anthony, for not only allowing me to be a co-blogger, but for taking me on and teaching me the science and art of food.

For the past 26 years I have ate with the best of them, sampling most of the cuisines that were presented to me.  It wasn’t until recently that I decided make the commitment to go beyond eating and learn how to cook!

Why do you cook? This weekend I realized that I find cooking, even in the stressful situation, to be therapeutic.  This weekend I was fortunate enough to engage in a cooking competition with some of my close friends.  Being in that kitchen, spending the hours prepping, cooking, platting, I found that I was able to forget about it all and focus on the food.  So my plan, though “Playing Around With Food”, in to take you on my adventure in learning how to cook.

My first purchase was a set of Global Knives…

Global Knives - Asian Style

I have used Global knives before, and I found them extremely comfortable. The reason I picked the Asian set is because they were the most comfortable in my hands.  Well, that is it for know…I look forward to sharing this adventure with you.

All the best,
