Fruit Salad a Yummy Dessert

One of the sources of income of my family is selling ice and ice candies at home. During summer it is a hit but when it rains and the temperature drop people felt cold to buy but thanks to unseasoned resellers who are able to sell few bags of ice candies every day.

The other day, there’s a left over ingredients for ice candies and my mother thought of preparing fruit salad from it. We just add more milk, young coconut and cream and voila we got fruit salad. Fruit salad is my favorite dessert, that’s why every time I went to a birthday or wedding party I will surely look first at the dessert table.

Kit-Kat and Choco Mania Ice Cream

Ice cream in the street of  Bulgaria is sold per weigh and not sold per scoop this is what I noticed.  The flavors I have tried already are Kit-Kat, Choco Mania, Eclair and Forest Fruits.

Macaroons Mocha Cake from Paris Baguette

After watching the season finale of The American Baking Competition we agreed to have a cake last weekend, we’ve been watching the tv show since it started and we always end up craving for sweets and pastries. Originally I would like to buy chocolate cake but my husband tired of me always buying chocolate cake requested me to have something new so I choose macaroons mocha cake it was bit expensive because it is larger than the others. When my husband saw the cake his first impression is we already have that, well I have no choice because he doesn’t like chocolate cake and I am pretty sure he will not like white chocolate cake, blueberry yoghurt cake or strawberry yoghurt cake and other fruity cake and I didn’t mention anymore that there’s cheese cake.

Macaroons Mocha Cake

Well I am the first one who eat the cake, to enjoy it I also prepare a cup of coffee while watching a local show. The cake was good and the mocha taste was great, love the macaroons as well.

After hours I felt hungry again but I doesn’t like eating cake again because too much sugar already so I ate the left over Bulgogi pizza we had on Friday.  Within just few minutes I had a terrible headache with nausea and I ended up throwing out the food I have eaten. I first believed that my food intolerance strike again, I experience this when I eat food which is not freshly cook or meat that is not fresh.

Microwave Baked Apple

My husband has been telling me that he will cook baked apple, I chuckled because we have no oven for baking but he insisted he can use our microwave oven. It was been postponed for many times already but the other night when he is craving for sweets he eventually does it.

He took the upper part of the apple and removed the core then add brown sugar and butter inside, and cook it in the microwave for a few minutes until the sugar is all melted. The photo above was the result, I am able to taste after constant bothering him to let me taste his masterpiece. Lol!

Cool and Sweet Meets Scary and Bleak: 5 Most Bizarre Ice Creams

Ice cream is a delicious treat that is enjoyed worldwide in a multitude of unique ways. Ice cream is quite universal, but different cultures tend to sport flavours catered to their own palate, which may be vastly different from your own. Below are five of the most bizarre ice cream flavour creations you could imagine eating, or rather, you can’t!

1. “Baby Gaga” – Breast Milk Ice Cream

In London, an ice cream parlour known as the The Icecreamists has gone where no one has gone before by creating the very first ice cream made with human breast milk. Consuming breast milk is often considered taboo, but when you think about it, it’s not any stranger than the regular consumption of milk from other species that is also intended for infants. The breast milk is acquired after a rigid screening process and it is pasteurized before use. Named after a certain flashy pop star, Baby Gaga ice cream offers the sweet and simple combination of citrus and vanilla.

2. “Basashi Aisu” – Raw Horse Meat Ice Cream

Japan is known for hosting a variety of novelty confections and food that is markedly unique. There is a vast array of ice cream flavours from Japan that certainly seem like an acquired taste. Horse meat ice cream, or “basahi”, is one one the most striking. Akin to a standard vanilla ice cream housing chocolate chips, this frozen treat is full of small pieces of raw horse flesh.

3. “Dondurma” Ice Cream

The flavour of dondurma is not as bizarre as its texture. This Turkish ice cream is made with salep, a special flour that makes the ice cream quite thick and resistant to melting. In fact, dondurma can be so thick that it may be necessary to eat it with a knife and fork! Vendors often use the bizarre texture of dondurma to their advantage and tease customers by hovering the ice cream just out of reach on a stick.

4. Viagra Ice Cream

A lot of men suffer from erectile dysfunction at some point in their lives, and besides taking a pill, many cultures have taken to using certain foods as a natural restorative for male virility. Viagra ice cream is made with ingredients like gingko, biloba, and guarana. These components are said to naturally stimulate certain areas of the male anatomy, and vendors only allow one dose of this ice cream per person, per day. So don’t expect seconds.

5. Spaghetti and Cheese Ice Cream

There are a surprising number of savoury ice creams that utilize ingredients more traditionally found at the dinner table. To newcomers, savoury ice creams can be decidedly off-putting. Native to Venezuela, a shop known as Heladeria Coromoto claims to have over 900 varieties of ice cream. One of the most bizarre offerings is spaghetti and cheese ice cream. This ice cream boasts not only cheese, but actual pieces of pasta blended throughout. Some of the other intriguing flavours offered by Coromoto include hot dog, salmon and avocado. Some of the ice cream names are equally as eclectic, such as “Jurassic Park” and “I’m Sorry, Darling.”
