Yorkshire Pudding (Sous Vide Bone-in Rib Roast)

Yorkshire Pudding. I have made these before. I haven't updated though that I love the combination of both ghee and drippings the most in these. They are so flavorful and I wouldn't make them any other way. You can, however, use either or as far as ghee and fat drippings. But both make such a great combination. 
I am also including my sous vide method for a bone-in rib roast (Prime Rib depending on the grade you have purchased.) It really is a foolproof method to cook the roast to get it cooked to your likeness all the way through.

Metal Stamped Garden Labels

I found these blank garden labels on Amazon they are from Bosmere USA. A great company, I contacted them with questions and they got right back to me. I recently ordered a second set from them. I used my metal stampers to stamp names on them then used a sharpie to fill in the letter indentations. They came out so cute.

Glazed Pork Belly

What can I say about this pork? It has a similar profile to Khai Palow and it is so flavorful and good. It is great in Coconut Pandan Rolls, Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, or dinner rolls, also great for Spring Rolls. You can slice it and put it in Ramen bowls. It is so good.  You don't have to use pork belly, this glaze can be used on tofu also. It's one of the best things I've made during sheltering in place. So very good.

Freezer Tip: Bell peppers, Onions, Celery

Freezer tip for you for things like bell peppers, jalapenos, onions, celery. Hardier vegetables that you're going to use in cooking.
Chop them up, freeze them in a thin layer on a jelly roll pan. Once frozen break them up and put them into a zip-top bag or a plastic container. When you want to use them they can easily be measured cup for cup or shaken into a recipe. Use them frozen, not thawed.
Easy peasy.
This is handy when we buy vegetables in bulk.

Khao Piek Sen (Bánh Canh Noodles)

I am so happy with this recipe. I saw it shared on a Facebook page for noodle making. I changed the weights and ratios a bit to our liking. The original recipe calls for a total of 5 kneading cycles. and two longer rest preiods, and often I just don't have time for that. It doesn't matter I'm thankful she posted the recipe. Traditionally these noodles don't have potato starch or Xanthan Gum. I find that both give this noodle great texture.  The noodles are chewy and hold their shape well. I used weights for everything in this recipe, even the water is by weight/grams. I find it is more accurate.

Yachtman Steakhouse- Orlando

Oh the Yachtsman. This meal did not disappoint and I would go back in a heartbeat. The service was top-notch, the food was very good. The steaks were cooked perfectly, smokey, and tender. The appetizers could have been meals. The only thing I wouldn't get again is the fries and truffle Mac and Cheese. Not that they weren't good but the creamed spinach I got, not pictured was really good.

Coconut Pandan Bread

Coconut and Pandan are one of my favorite baked good flavors. Coconut Pandan sponge cake is one of my top 3 favorite cakes. If you haven't had Pandan the aroma is sweet and floral like vanilla but it doesn't taste like vanilla at all. Pandan is used in many Southeast Asian desserts like you see vanilla used in the US. I use a Pandan extract for this recipe, you can find Pandan leaves in some Asian markets, I have some that I keep in the freezer. You can make your own extract with it.

Oga's Cantina - Hollywood Studios Orlando

Oga's Cantina is located within Galaxy's Edge at Hollywood Studios in Orlando. The whole of Galaxy's Edge is pretty amazing to see. The area and theme are based on the Black Spire Outpost on the Outer Rim planet of Batuu, and for Star Wars fans the opening of this area has been highly anticipated. Sandly all of Disney is closed now due to Covid-19. However Disney did not disappoint when setting the scene for the whole land. From shops, attractions, eating areas, and Star Wars ships (Millennium Falcon anyone?) and droids it was so fun to explore.
Oga's Cantina is a bar. Family friendly? Yes, it's Disney, however, it is not a sit down restaurant. There are few tables and lots of room for standing at the U-shaped bar, or standing height tables. There are drinks both alcoholic and non-alcoholic and a few snack selections. Knowing this I still wanted to go and take a peek. We had reservations, there was a two drink and 45-minute time limit while we were there. Which is more than enough time if you're there with kids and not there to actually have a drink and... well, you know bar stuff. Besides, it's Disney.
