I Am Longing For This

I am talking about the ruffoni copper cookware, the image is below. So, if you are very generous this Christmas I would like one. The one set that we have right now have the same price for one of this. If money is not an object I would love to buy a set of them. They are one of the materials for cooking ware that is good to our health. Maybe buying the one we can use often will be doable and affordable.They also have ruffoni copper molds for cakes, pudding, jelly and casserole pan. Leaving healthy in this country comes with a hefty price. And if you want to be healthy you better watch what you are using for everything. This is included on our long lists of healthy products to have in our home. I rather have a quality product, not only they are healthy for me but we will definitely get our money’s worth.

I know there are other healthy products out in the market however; I am just putting it out there for everyone to choose from. Free market is always good because you can pick which is …

Homemade Fries & BLT

I usually use baking potatoes for homemade fries. They are longer and my kids loves it. And that is good enough for me. BLT with the works and this time I put mayo in mine. I don't buy the iceberg lettuce anymore, plus I like the Romaine lettuce better because it is greener than iceberg. Anyway, this one is for you.

My Inlaws Christmas Present

I can’t remember anymore how many times my mother in law made a comment about my pot rack. They are not as nice as enclume potracks but it does the job and it goes well with our tiny kitchen. Even her sister commented on it when she came to visit us for the very first time. She lives in Brooklyn but my husband is not that close to her mother side of the family.

So, for Christmas my mother in law will be getting enclume pot rack with free installation included from my husband. I don’t think my father in law can hang it himself since he is old and they have a very high ceiling. If my husband will not do it for them, this thing will collect dust or just get buried somewhere and never be found again.

Anyway, her cupboard is filled with so many things and sometimes we can’t find what we are looking for. At least with enclume pot racks, we can see pots right away and she can stuff her cupboard with other things that she doesn’t us to see. Did I mention she keeps everything?

French Toast

An updated version from last week. Like I promise I will take a better picture and better presentation and I think I did a better job this time. And I used sour dough bread this week.

This one with only powder sugar on top.

With powder sugar and maple syrup.

And yes natural maple syrup is the best.

There is nothing compare to bacon cooked in their fat and maple syrup. I could not even finish two pieces of toast. They are very heavy in my stomach.

Professional Kitchen Wares

That is what I wanted to have if I ever win a kitchen makeover from some company that I put an entrée for. Hey, I may not win but dreaming is always good when done properly…lol. Having a big family is like owning a small restaurant already. It should be open from when the children wake until they go to bed. Unless the restaurant can close when the time for them to close, I can’t. And I believe I deserve the best professional cookwares out there, right honey?

I may not be a professional chefs but I can cook like one. Everyone knows that having restaurant grade equipment will sure last longer, just make sure you pick the best just like wasserstrom restaurant supplies. Where else will you find China sets for more than 12 people? You will not find it in your local department store, well not in mind. And I’m pretty sure you will find this in some specialty stores.

Are you thinking about opening you own restaurant or café? Think about Wasserstrom, you will find Chefs uniforms, Restaurant supp…

Chili and Cheese Baked Potatoes

A really good recipe when you have left over chili. Just bake some baking potatoes and top it with butter, chili and shredded cheese or sour cream whichever you prefer.

Have You Ever...

At times I get into this craving when I only wanted to eat nothing but vegetables, fruits, sour soups, salty, pasta/grains, and meat. And I also notice that my kindergartner is the same way. Very weird because we are supposed to eat with a mixture in the food pyramid. Mostly the vegetables and salty stuff I eat on the summer months.

My son in the other hand can go with everything on the table, to nothing but cereals and crackers, then meat, and potatoes. It's like a cycle. Anyway, I thought I would share my observations. TTFN.

Thank You My Droppers

Eight out of ten made a drop 31 times during the month of October. Thank you so much, "In My Kitchen" appreciate all of your visits and drops on my widget, even though I moved the widget lower or the lowest part of my blog. See you all next time!

My French Toast

I kept forgetting taking food pictures every time I cook something new. And look there was only one french toast left when I remember taking a picture. So sad looking single slice of And nothing on it too, I will do better next time.

I have to make sour dough bread first and let it set out in the open and make french toast out of it. I will change the picture as soon as I get a new picture. I haven't made this for such a long time and DH was so happy to have them over the weekend. I usually beat eggs and add cinnamon in it and just about it. Butter the pan to prevent it for sticking. You can add anything as a topping if you like, like fresh fruits, powder sugar and ice cream. Enjoy!

Here is an updated picture I took a week later. Want some? I put powder sugar and maple syrup on top. Yummy!
