Vancouverites will soon have access to interesting Indonesian food products. Sourced from Indonesia by Indonesians, Archipelago Marketplace curates and delivers a wide variety of unique, high quality products to North America, offering customers an authentic Indonesian experience and a taste of the culture. Their products will be available on Amazon as well as at the pop-up store in Gastown at the Indonesia Trade Promotion Centre at 310 West Cordova Street.

I had the opportunity for a sneak preview at the pop-up store. It carries products such as tempeh chips, cassava flour, vanilla sugar, various types of coffee, butterfly pea tea and ginger powder. They also have interesting products that I’ve never heard of, including curcumin powder and the Indonesian ginseng called Tongkat ali.

We are only a few days away from Halloween, and this Halloween isn’t going to be the same. We are all trying to be more creative and have fun, all the while being safe. Baking at home is definitely fit for this occasion. We made some monster fingers by adapting from a recipe on beanpanda.com. This is super easy to make and there are ways to involve your kids (or the kids in you)!

Ingredients

  • 50g Butter (Room Temperature)
  • 2 tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 10g Whisked Egg (or Liquid Eggs)
  • 90g Cake Flour
  • 20g Almond Powder
  • 16 Raw Almond (approximate)

As we spend more time at home, Mama Lam is trying different recipes to keep ourselves entertained. We found this Korean style baked mochi ball recipe online and tested it out. The recipe is very easy to make and suitable to involve kids.

In a nutshell, the dry ingredients make up the flavours while the wet ingredients bind them together. We tried it with 4 flavour variations and made some adjustments based on our experience. The steps are the same regardless of the flavours.

Wet Ingredients (Mixture A)

  • 12g Butter
  • 1/2 Egg
  • 35ml Warm Milk

Dry Ingredients (Mixture B)

Last month, Mama Lam made some nougats. It’s good but it’s a bit boring, so she found a recipe to take it up a notch. It’s called Nougat Puff. It’s essentially nougat with the addition of crunchy crackers. We’ve made a few batches now and each time it has turned out well.

Ingredients

  • 200g Ritz biscuit
  • 200g marshmallow
  • 80g melted butter
  • 50g milk powder
  • 100g dried cranberries

It was the final week of the Claude Monet Secret Garden exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery. I had no idea why it took me so long to finally check it out, but I made it! CC and I planned a fancy girls’ day out.

I thoroughly enjoyed the exhibit, witnessing the evolution of Monet’s work. In addition to the Water Lilies, my favourite pieces were Taking a Walk Near Argenteuill, Wisteria, and Weeping Willow.
