Not Your Usual Jello: Coffee And Coconut Milk Jelly

Wow, this is a very unique jelly that I have not seen before. The look itself is impressively pretty. I haven't had this kind of desert for years. And I definitely hadn't had one like this.

Lemon Scented Broccolini

This is a recipe from the cookbook "Cooking Around the Clock - Rachael Ray 30 minutes Meals" . I made this as one of the side dishes for Rachael Ray's menu: "An All-American Supper". I think it's too blend and too plain. It doesn't have enough taste even though lemon zest is added. If you like plain tasting vegetable, then you can find the recipe on the Food Network website.

Apple Raisin Oven Pancake

I am now having this as breakfast while typing this post. The dish looks great and the ingredients are easy to gather. The reason I made this breakfast this morning is because I have a leftover apple and raisins from last time when I was cooking Rachael Ray's All American Pork Chop Dinner. Thank god, I finally used up all the leftover ingredients from that recipe. Now my fridge is empty and clean (I prefer my fridge to be empty and clean cause that means I can once again eat out at my favorite restaurants which I won't do as long as I have food items in my fridge. It's just my routine...)

As for the taste of this breakfast dish, I'm just not too crazy about it. The texture isn't the same like "Pancakes" , it's more like a "quiche and very dense custard combo in between". Since I'm not into quiche, I'm not too crazy about this dish. It also is not sweet enough for me. I would like it to be sweeter without me sprinkling powder sugar constantly while eating. The dish doesn't tastes bad, it definitely smells good but it's just that I would like it to have a texture that is like a typical pancake. For those of you who want to try out this breakfast, you can click here for the recipe. May be you will love it.

All-in-One Burger Stew

This delicious stew is fast and very easy to make. For that little time and efforts I put into it, the stew turned out to be very yummy. I served this with flaky buttermilk biscuits baked out of the canned dough. I always think good stews take hours to make, obvioiusly not. I am so happy I found this recipe because it's by far easier and faster than all the 30-minute Meals I learnt from Rachael Ray. The short list of ingredients make this recipe a winner for busy weeknight dinners. Leftovers even tasted better the next day when I had it for lunch at work. You can find the recipe here on this website.
