Foodie Friday: Green Tea, Red Bean, Coconut Bread

Green Tea, Red Bean, Coconut Bread: three flavors in one bread! I couldn't pass up on this new offering at Ranch 99. The bread has the same thickness of Taiwan toast. The flavors are distributed right down the middle (coconut on one side, green tea on the other). The bread has my favorite ingredients, so I shouldn't complain too much...but I do wish it had more earthy green tea flavor. P.S. Don't you just love the colors? … [Read more...]

Well, since I'm a frequent visitor to the hospital now, I've made a nesting spot in the local Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. My latest taste from their menu includes... Peach green tea: green tea with fruity sweetness Typically, I prefer my tea plain. However, Tea Leaf offers a number of combinations. I decided to try the peach flavor. I did like the look of the peach cubes in the tea bag (see above)! It was nice to have a change where there's a subtle sweetness and flavor of fruit to contrast … [Read more...]

#BookReview: Every Soul a Star

every soul a star

“You will live a long, prosperous life.” Every Soul a Star  5 stars Pros: Science made interesting Different perspectives True teen voices Cons: May be too sweet for some I really enjoyed Every Soul a Star. Since I recently saw the solar eclipse, I had to check out this read. I love how Mass incorporated scientific facts in this book. Every Soul is a slow, thoughtful read. Some people might find fault with that (see my con above), but I found it refreshing. … [Read more...]
