Do you like apple crumble? With layers of cinnamon apples topped with crunchy crumble, who wouldn’t want to dig into this? While I love making this dish, I was trying to come up with a way to present this in a different way. I usually make apple crumble in a large baking dish. So I tried making individual apple crumble with small ramekins. Then I had an idea, what if I replace the small ramekins with an edible cup? The light bulb lit up and this is how my apple crumble baked in apple cups were born. I’m sure this is not a new idea but I was so excited when I thought of the idea. If you’re looking to amp up this comforting dessert, then give this recipe a try!
Recently I found some mini mozzarella (or bocconcini) in the grocery store and made some mini Caprese salad on a stick. I couldn’t believe they turned out so tasty and are so easy to make! Simply get all your ingredients ready and thread them through some skewers. Voilà, you’ve got some fancy looking appetizers ready for entertaining.
The first Starbucks Reserve in Western Canada opened in Vancouver in May 2017. Besides their normal menu, you can also get affogatos and cold brew floats which are unique to this location. But it was the experience bar that drew us to visit. This is where you can watch the Coffee Masters brew coffee using methods such as Siphon and Clover brewing techniques. Sounds interesting right?! Let’s take a look the Siphon Brewing method!
Yanagawa is about 1.5 hours train ride from Hakata, making it perfect for a day trip. Here are two reasons why you should visit Yanagawa: (1) the boat ride through the canals, and (2) the local specialty Unagi no Seiromushi – steamed unagi (eel) rice. Since the boat ride takes 70 minutes, I purposely took the morning tour. Then we can eat the delicious eel rice for lunch right after our ride!
