Blueberry Lemon Chiffon Cake

Blueberry Lemon Chiffon Cake

A blueish purple cake is such a pain the neck to provide while not food product value-added. Natural pigments like anthocyanins found in fruits and vegetables appear to not stay prettily purple when baking. So, i attempted to play with its color. the color of the pigment will be simply altered by either adding AN acid or AN alkali. Acids like juice, vinegar and alkali like sodium bicarbonate.

I additionally found that South yank blueberries tend to own a redder hue, compared to those planted in North American country. once I seared the blueberry paste, I found that it turned magentaish, one thing just like the color of Barney the archosaurian reptile as a result of I created it with SA blueberries, mature in Chile. i attempted another batch with Argentinean blueberries and that they too, turned to the color of Barney.

When I created my Blueberry Ripple yoghourt frozen dessert last time with yank blueberries, the color was a lot of blueish. that was why I realized the color distinction. Your opinion might take issue from mine, this can be strictly my very own opinion. So, so as to show it to become a lot of violet, I value-added some sodium bicarbonate bit by bit to show it into the color i would like. do not get it too blue as once it gets created into a batter, it turns bluer. which could justify why some blueberry bakes flip achromatic. Too basic already. i suppose that's a lot of rampant with northern blueberries. To counter that, add in some juice.

Actually initially I did not consider turning this into a lemon flavored chiffon. however once I mixed the blueberry paste with the nutrient batter, it turned blue!!! Ohio.. currently i am setting out to worry that it will flip gray instead once baked. which was why I value-added in some juice and zest within the finish to counter it. This cake was bluer once recent out from the kitchen appliance, i glanced at the crack. however because it cooled down, it turned to be a soft lilac colored chiffon. Oh well, higher than a gray chiffon. Hahaha!

Delicious Crab Cake Burgers

March 16, 2019
I never ever thought I would make crab cakes. Never! Simple because crab meat is pricey.

Delicious Crab Cake Burgers
Delicious Crab Cake Burgers

For CNY this year, my FIL went on a seafood spree. Bought this and that and this and that. My MIL looked at the pack of crab meat and asked me, “Do you know how to finish this up??”

Haha, of course I do! The easiest way is crab cakes. It uses a great deal of crab meat.

And then few days before the day I was supposed to cook this (hey, I need to buy and gather ingredients ok, it’s not like I want to cook now, I can cook now), I then had the idea of making burgers out of the crab cakes and then hahaha, make my own mayo!!! Lime mayo with crab sounds good eh??? This crab cake burger is 100% homemade, except that I didn’t make the raw ingredients myself, didn’t plant my own lettuce, didn’t plant my own wheat, but then, all made from scratch.

I’m not that always that particular about my food, but I take it as a learning experience. Of course, buying buns and mayo is like.. walking next door only. Yes, I do mean that literally. My current neighbour, front and side are grocery stores and 2 more few doors away. But then, it’s a good chance for me to add more ‘posts” to my blog. But in the process, I do learn something new of course. I’ll talk about my mayo next time. And my burger buns too.

Today it’s only about the crab cake burger.

These are the crab cakes

The recipe initially called for 1 pound of crab meat, so then I reduced everything accordingly and skipped most of the seasonings as I can’t be bothered to go get mustard that I don’t’ really consume.

I too, like the other try-ers of this recipe found it too wet, even when I skipped the lemon juice and the mayo. My crab meat were moist but they weren’t wet as they weren’t frozen in water as some in supermarkets are. I found it so so hard to form into patties and flour them before frying. So, in the end, I threw the flour that I prepared to coat the patties with into the whole mixture itself. Phew, life is easier then on. I could form soft balls of it and gently place them into the pan. Life is full of contingency plans. Just don’t sit there and cry. Crab meat is very expensive to be wasted.

Easy Chicken Paprika Over Noodles

March 14, 2019
Every few months, my co-workers get along at someone's house for a repast dinner. we have a tendency to attempt to tie it to a subject simply to create it easier once somebody asks what to bring. 

Easy Chicken Paprika Over Noodles
Easy Chicken Paprika Over Noodles

Our most up-to-date theme was Oktoberfest, thus in fact the general public brought brew and/or pumpkin spice something. I brought chicken paprika. whereas the general public consider Paprika as Hungarian, I found enough sites that thought-about it German enough to travel with the theme at hand.

To make it easier for guests to get pleasure from without having a knife or sporting an excessive amount of of the sauce, I slice the burned chicken into one-bite items. If you propose to serve this dish to your family, build it simple on yourself and serve the thighs (or even drumsticks) intact, and permit one or 2 items per serving. there's lots enough sauce to extend the amount of items to ten or twelve.

I don't advocate breast meat. The long cookery time tends to dry out red meat. meat remains nice and tender.

If you've got no dairy farm aversion, be at liberty to use a cup of real cream in situ of the faux stuff.

Yield: 8 servings (12 for a party)


  • 6 chicken thighs
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt, plus more to taste if needed
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper, plus more to taste if needed
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • couple pinches hot paprika
  • 3 red bell peppers, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 3 Tbl. tomato paste
  • 1 tsp. chicken bouillon powder
  • 3 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 Tbl. olive oil
  • 2 onions, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
  • cold water
  • 1/4 loosely packed cup parsley leaves, chopped, divided
  • 2 Tbl. cornstarch mixed with 3 Tbl. cold water
  • 1 (12-14 oz.) bag medium egg noodles
  • 8 oz. non-dairy sour cream (optional)


  1. Sprinkle the chicken pieces generously with salt, pepper, and both paprikas.  Set aside.
  2. Process bell peppers, tomato paste, chicken bouillon and garlic in a blender until smooth. Set aside as well.
  3. In a 6-quart or larger saucepot, heat olive oil over medium. Saute onion slices until tender, about 5-6 minutes.  Add the seasoned chicken pieces.  Brown on skin side, about 5 minutes.
  4. Pour the red pepper mixture over the chicken. Add enough water until sauce just covers chicken.
  5. Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons of the chopped parsley.  Increase heat to medium-high and bring sauce to a boil.  Reduce heat to a low simmer. Cover pot loosely to allow a bit of evaporation.
  6. Cook chicken for 1 hour or to desired tenderness.
  7. Meanwhile, cook egg noodles one minutes less than package directions.  Drain and rinse with cold water to prevent noodles from sticking to each other.  Drain again; set aside.
  8. Remove chicken to a cutting board.  Remove meat from bones; discard skin and bones.  Cut meat into bite-size pieces, and return to the pot.
  9. Stir corn starch mixture into the sauce.  Simmer for a minute or two to thicken.  Reduce heat to low;  stir in sour cream.  Taste, and add additional salt and/or pepper if needed.
  10. Mix in cooked noodles.  Continue to cook over low heat for a few minutes to rewarm noodles.
  11. Transfer to large casserole dish or serving bowl.  Sprinkle with remaining tablespoon chopped parsley to garnish.
