Happy Sacks’ Fried Dumplings

06.20.2013

It’s been a long time since I’ve last made something that resembles “food”, all thanks to my dear friend, procrastination.  I totally miss setting up my “table” for picture purposes that it was such a great news to hear from a friend if we could take pictures of their product. Who would say no to that? Add to the fact that she already has plenty of props ready, yipee!

First up for this batch is their Fried Dumplings which I was able to gobble up after the shoot for free, what a treat for my happy tummy🙂

Butterbeer and Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans

 

11.10.2012

Thanks to Harry Potter and Pepper.ph.

Three glasses. The first one was a fail – too much caramel, 2nd one was ok but there wasn’t much bubbles, 3rd one – I’ve only dropped a tiny bit of caramel and a whole lot of A&W Cream Soda.

and because I have no more pictures of this set to share: glasses, skittles and broken frames.

Chocolate-covered Strawberries

11.09.2012

Got a chance to buy same decent looking strawberries at Savemore and decided to make this. Frozen strawberries makes a great alternative to artificially flavored ice pops as well. Yum🙂

Toasted some bread as well and topped it off with whipped cream and cinnamon. I just come to love the smell and taste of cinnamon now – my new fave🙂

And a lonely looking hearty strawberry ♥

Fried breakfast

09.16.2012

Breakfast on a Sunday with the whole family around and no, we usually don’t have this kind of fancy shmancy breakfast food.

Aside from the fact that all of these are processed food, you should also take note that all of these are “fried”… except for the grapes and … parsley (does that even count?!).

Shrimp and corn (overload) chowder

09.13.2012

Grabbed this recipe from the back of Alaska Evaporada😉 I didn’t really follow it to the tiniest details but I love the result. A very fulfilling soup, top it off with a whole can of corn to feed my addiction.

Image

Took me 2 hours to prepare this dish, boy is shrimp peeling a tedious task.

Image

Sautee garlic, onions and shrimp and set aside.

Image

Boil water and potatoes then add milk and cheese then the shrimps when  potatoes are already  cooked and you’re done!

Bacon-filled “lunch”

09.12.2012

Bacon-mushroom dip and bacon-wrapped asparagus.

Image

I was really trying to make my own version of Cafe George’s bacon-mushroom dip on this one but I don’t think I even came close. The taste still works for me though, all that cheese(cream cheese + mozarella) in the dip is heaven ♥

Image

I also bump into our dear asparagus at Robison’s and finally had the courage to buy it since I am curious as to how this creature taste like after reading and seeing about it on different food blogs. Asparagus is not a household name for me at all. “A” tasted quite bland actually but crunchy, wrapping the bacon in it gives A the chance to absorb B’s unhealthy but flavorful taste.
