Breakfast/Brunch: Buttermilk Pancakes w/ Peaches and cream

Finally made peaches and cream buttermilk pancakes. I did buy berries but the peaches were so yummy~

the first few pancakes got burnt so we tried lowing the heat down and we made better looking pancakes and they had a nice golden-brown colour. the recipe I used made 7 pancakes

First time making pancakes. I grew up with the "shake N pour" pancake mix, which in my opinion, isn't as good as homemade ones (or even Pancake Parlour). still haven't eaten dinner yet. Still full from the pancakes.

Baking: Blueberry Muffins

Made Blueberry muffins to share as we were invited to dinner at a friends house.

fresh from the oven

the recipe I used makes only 6 muffins apparently. But I think that's cos they used the massive Muffin tin. I managed to make 14 cupcake-sized muffins. and I used canola oil instead of vegetable oil.

But they're still irresistable.

Puffy Cheesy Omelette

just a photo of the omelette. you can see the egg whites whisked to soft peaks.

but for some reason, it keeps deflating as soon as i remove it from the pan. still trying to find a solution to that ^.^"

Failed Foods part 1 and Future recipes part 2

sorry I haven't posted much dinners... i did make dinner.... they just..... failed......................

Fail 1: Creamy mushroom chicken - we left it to simmer for too long and on medium heat that the chicken kinda burnt....

Fail 2: Korean chicken curry - we added too much water to the curry sauce it wasn't spicy at all.

recently we've just been eating instant noodles, fast food and desserts in the city lol!

food I wanna make in the future:
1. buttermilk pancakes
2. blueberry muffins
3. chocolate brownie muffins (centre nutella)

Breakfast: Sausage, Bacon and puffy cheesy Omelette

No pics again >.< cos it was my first omelette made.

Yesterday was our 3rd month anniversary and I want brekkie to be a lil different that's not bacon and eggs like we ate everyday (=.=) So the night before, I found my old recipes I collected while I was in high school and i looked through it. I found a puffy cheesy omelette recipe and thought I should give it a try.

with the sausage and bacon, we had a funny inspiration from Youtuber EpicMealTime and they pretty much make epic meals. And basically, they love their bacon and wrap meats in bacon (even a freaking pig!)

So from that I wrapped a sausage in bacon after they were both cooked lol!!!

back to my omelette, its not like any other omelette. It's puffy cos I separated the egg whites and yolks, whisk up the egg whites to soft peaks, season the egg yolks and milk and add it back in the egg whites and cook it for 2 minutes, then add grated cheese and cook it for another 2 minutes.

my first omelette deflated T.T but the second one was better. it's because the recipe was meant to be for one serving, so I doubled it... but I couldn't halve it lol! So yeah... It would be better to cook them separately.

other than that, we have a fantastic time yesterday.
