Toasted Bread with Wallnuts and Fresh Rosemary

This is what I made this morning for breakfast. I usually had only a cup of coffee and an ordinary toast but I fancied this morning to make something else. 

So, here it is!

Toast a nice slice of bread in the broiler until lightly brown on both sides. Remove from oven and spread with 5% cream cheese. Dizzle with honey and top with chopped toasted wallnut(optional)and a little chopped fresh rosemary. Healthy and a great combination. Sarah loves it.

Here are some of the photos I took, part of my addiction in photography!

Supermarket Escapades

Are you a food shopper? Well, that's me, Hehehe!

I went to the posh supermarket today with Sarah and Ann her daughter. When I say posh, everything is nice, lovely and fresh and most of their product are organic foods. The Eden Teva Supermarket is a bit expensive store and their products last longer and remains good even it take 2 weeks in the fridge. 

And when I say organic foods, it is a food that can be produced without certain synthetic ingredients. Crops are generally grown without synthetic pesticides and artificial fertilizers. 
Animals on organic farms eat organically grown feed, and are raised without antibiotics or synthetic growth hormones

The question is, if this organic foods good for our health? 

In my comprehension, it is more nutritious because it is free of chemicals,  however it cost more than ordinary veggies, fruits, meat or even eggs which is organic. 

That's  the difference going in that supermarket compare to those other supermarket here in Israel. But what is fun going there is they have a lot of unusual products, especially they have products imported from my country Philippines. Like pansit cantoon, sotanghon rice noodles, and Silver swan soya sauce. That I wouldn't expect to see in my neighborhood supermarket.

Nutty Granola Ice cream

Growing up away from my parents,  I learned how to cook and started loving it. Since then, I was collecting recipes and try making an experiment with my cooking habits.

Sounds I'm good but truly I'm just beginning  to explore my hidden interest in the kitchen.

I remember two years ago, I made this nutty-granola ice cream. It wasn't perfect as I expected and I didn't have a save photographs here since my computer was reprogram.

I took this recipe from a magazine and kept it in my scrapbook.

Here the ingredients and the method of making it :

Ice Cream

8 eggs
304 cup sugar
2 cups non-dairy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 packet vanilla pudding


1 cup sugar
100 grams margarine
1 cup chopped peanuts
1 cup flour


1. Beat the egg whites with sugar for approximately 5 minutes till thick and frothy.
2. Add egg yolk and vanilla and continue beating.
3. Pour in  non-dairy cream and vanilla pudding and beat well until the mixture has increased in volume.
4. Mix sugar, softened margarine, nuts and flour with your fingers and place on a baking tray.
5. Bake at 180 C for approximately 20-25 minutes til golden brown.
6. Break into pieces and stir through ice-cream sprinkling some on top.
7. Pour into container and freeze.

This is good for the summer. I plan to make it tomorrow and I promise  I will take some photos and post it here.
