    Banana Bread with Cheese

    May 20, 2018

    Our typical breakfast is having a bread and a cup of coffee or chocolate drink for adults and a soy milk for the toddler. It has always been my task to think of what bread to serve. My husband and I are not fans of eating the same food at least in 2 weeks unless we don’t have any other choices.

    One week ago, I bought the Paradise’s banana bread mix in Woolworths. It is exclusively packed for woolies anyways. I like this brand because I can use our overripe bananas coz banana is one of the staple foods at home. Again, the same question, what could be different?

    My daughter has allergic reactions on cow’s milk that is why when baking, I use soy or almond milk as replacement. At this time, I am currently doing the Home Introduction and Immunology program from my daughter’s paediatrician to slowly introduce dairies, cow’s milk and tree nuts(except peanuts). I checked the fridge and found excess cheese from the pizza I made few days ago. Baking with milk and cheese is part of the program. I asked my husband if it’s okay for him to eat banana with cheese and he said ok.

    I added the cheese on the last 10min of baking. The result is yumminess! It is really tasty. Although to be honest, I can work on the texture next time. Maybe I will add the cheese 5 min before baking or I will include the cheese in the batter. That’s for the next version of banana bread.

    Oh, my daughter did not show any sign of reaction with the milk and cheese. Another milestone, yey! 😛

    Tortang Talong with Minced Pork and Spices

    May 20, 2018

    Few weeks ago, I started to introduce the eggplant to my daughter. Having a child who shows food allergic reactions, I introduce food one at a time. I was thankful that the first Tortang Talong, a Filipino dish which consists of eggplant and egg”, she ate did not show any reactions on her skin. Whew!

    So this week, I cooked it again. What could be done to make it something new? I checked the fridge and found excess minced pork and of course eggs. I got this idea from the packed lunch of my friend when we were still in Philippines. I checked the spices I have. Hmmm, basil and cayenne pepper. Let’s do this. I add the spices when it is almost cooked. As a routine, I will take a photo of it but it looks plain so I sprinkle some dried parsley herbs. Still boring but anyways it won’t stop me from taking a photo.

    When I serve it, my daughter is very excited because she saw while I was preparing that it has eggs. She loves eggs. But to her dismay, she cannot see the egg(those with white and yellow thing).

    D: Mommy where is the egg?

    M: “It’s there. It has eggs.”

    D: “No egg.”

    Therefore, at night, I cooked a separate creamy scrambled egg. What makes it creamy? Mayonnaise.

    D: “Hmmm, its’s delicious!”

    🙂
