first time....

bought myself a couple of cook books to keep my interest in food alive since i am basically tired of everything else. with all the shit that is going on in the world only food could get my mind of things.
also to keep me busy since i've got nothing much to do lately.
i've tried making and baking a lo of things before except for pizza. found a couple of recipes on the book that looked really tasty and easy. so i gave it a try.
i've always shy away from making pizza or anything that involves yeast. i had never got it right before. but luckily this time around it turned out well. 
i am quite pleased with how it turned out. act pretty proud of myself, even my brother (my biggest and cruelest critic) loved it. it wasnt exactly dominos worthy, its kinda bread-y then i expected it to be but yea at least its something.
will be trying out more recipes soon. it will sorta be a new segment in my blog, trying out recipe book. 
have a nice day, see u in my next post:>

snickers bar frappe

ever since i had the snickers bar ice blended in Calanthe Cafe Jonker Street i've been obsessed with figuring out the recipe. i've found some recipes online but most of them consist of a few flavoring to mimic the taste of  a snicker bar. when i tried them out they dont taste like how it does at Calanthe. they made it taste like a liquidized snickers bar. it is freakin awesome.
today i finally got it down. although it might not taste exactly like calanthe's but close though. lol
so heres the recipe.

you'll need : (measurements in Starbuck's venti tumblr)
- 1 cup if ice
- 2 tablespoon of chocolate syrup
-1 tablespoon of caramel syrup
- 1/3 cups of milk (you can also use chocolate milk, but them leave out the chocolate syrup in your mixture)
-one whole snickers bar
- whipped cream and diced almonds for garnish

 put them all in your blender and juicer then serve with whipped cream and your choice of garnish.
enjoy.
