Just in case there’s someone out there that needs a refresher.

1 or 2 slices of bread
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
splash of vanilla
pinch of cinnamon

Mix the egg, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon in a shallow container
dip the bread into the custard, allowing it to absorb most of it
pan fry in a little bit of butter or oil, until well browned

Serve with sugar, syrup, and or fruit

Thai Style Sticky Rice with Mango – A small batch


1/2 cup glutinous (sweet) rice
1 mango, peeled and cubed (I prefer the golden Asian variety)
1/2 cup coconut milk
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon sugar
sprinkling of sesame seeds, optional
parchment paper

Soak the rice overnight

Prepare a steamer over boiling water lined with parchment paper

Drain the rice and spread it out in the lined steamer
steam the rice, covered for 20 minutes

In a microwave-safe bowl, heat up the coconut milk for a minute
add the salt and sugar
heat again for another minute
stir to make sure sugar and salt are dissolved
set aside

When the rice is cooked, transfer it in to a bowl
pour the hot coconut milk over the rice (reserve a tablespoon or so for garnish)
mix well with the rice
keep stirring until it becomes a thick consistency
the rice will slowly absorb all the coconut milk

Allow to cool to room temperature
serve with a garnish of the reserved coconut milk syrup and sesame seeds
