Panna Cotta - first try

Panna Cotta was the competition topic of December from food and photography facebook group that I'm joining. Even I've never tried this food before, I thought it was just like fruit jelly I usually watched my grandma made. Thus, on my mind, it's kind of easy, LOL. Plus the event hosts also said the recipe was not hard at all, simple, easy, just make and succeed. Yeah, I heard it clearly, just make and succeed!

Homemade Hot Pepper Sauce

Winter is officially coming here in Toronto now. As my last post in November about my little garden, I had to harvest all the peppers even though they were still green. Just a couple of them were ripe. The bad news is that I’m not very good at eating spicy food and all people I know couldn’t even eat as spicy as I do, LOL. That’s why two big bags of green hot peppers have been in my fridge all the time. I guess they should weigh around 5 pounds (or say 6 pounds at maximum). A month has passed by and I don’t think they can stay there in the fridge forever. Well, I have to do something with them. I thought about pickling them but still too much. Finally, I came up with the idea to storing them as sauce; require less space and easier eating in a long time. And the good news is that it was not too hard to do homemade hot pepper sauce at I thought.

Food ideas for napa cabbages - Let's roll them!

Usually, cabbages can be boiled, stirred, pickled (famous Korean Kimchi) or used for soup. To make the recipe less boring, I rolled them this time. Napa cabbage leaves are perfect for food wrapping.

na·pa cab·bage/ˈnapə/

(From Internet)
A cabbagelike Chinese plant whose long, white leaves are used in salads and cooking.

Book Review: Outliers - The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell

Malcolm Gladwell is the name I heard the most from friends whenever mentioning about books and intellectual talks. I don’t know why, maybe by coincidence, I received recommendations on his books from at least 3 people (those who I know in person) from different areas of sciences. The first time I heard about him should be in 2008. At that time, frankly, I wasn’t very excited to read English books at all (English isn’t my native language). Whenever thinking about reading, understanding and catching the metaphor behind the books, I procrastinated myself. Therefore, I kept lying myself that because I was so busy and I couldn’t spend time seriously on reading books. That excuse made me feel better during years. It’s somehow called as “Willful Blindness”[1] symptom.
